Tutorial

This brush set is made using Illustrator and Photoshop. Here’s a short tutorial on how I did it.

Step 1

First, open Illustrator. Create new file with size 2.500 x 2.500 px. This is the size of our brushes. You might asking, why only 2500×2500 px? Why not making it bigger? Because that’s the maximum size for brush, you can’t go bigger than that. Next, using pen tool draw two curve without fill and black stroke.

Step 2

Click Object > Blend > Blend Options. Select Specified Steps with 25 next to it. Hit OK.

Select both lines and click Object > Blend > Make or ctrl+alt+B. Illustrator will automatically add 25 transition lines between the two selected lines. Hit ctrl+A then ctrl+C to select all lines and copy them to clipboard.

Step 7

After you have enough brush tip, click Edit > Preset Manager. Select brush tips you just created and click Save Set. Selected brush tip will be exported as a brush file (*.abr). This file can be distributed to your friends or to a site like what I’m doing right now.
