Trucos de diseño para diseñar como locos
from a pictureIn the publication Create your own brushes (Part 1), Iexplained the procedures for creating brushes in PhotoShop. In this publication I will explain how to create new brushes in a similar way in Illustrator.
Draw to achieve the form you need. In the picture above you have an example, a graffiti’s style signature created with the brush that will quickly become a simple and original logo. Once you have the sample from which you create the brush click New Brush in the Brushes window tab.
Immediately you’ll see the window that allow you to choose several different types of brushes: calligraphic, scatter, art, bristle (incorporated in v7), and pattern. Depending on the choice you make the sample will behave in one way or another. In the bottom image shows the window as it appears on the v6.
Each type of brush is designed for a specific use and has its independent options window. It is appropriate to know the differences when you are creating a new brush as well as when you go to import a brush library. Especially if you’re going to pay any money for it. Below you can see the four main types and a brief description of each.
The brush options window, in the picture above, allows you to set the behavior of the brush, the name, how it will affect the color information, etc … Once these parameters are determined the brush is ready to work, apply it with a brush or other tool, or to an existing line or shape, in this case an ellipse.
