Brushes are one of the major tools for any design medium; they help us to stylize the appearance of a path. Brush strokes are applied on an existing path or you can use paint brush tool to draw a poster and apply a brush stroke simultaneously.
Types of Brushes:
There are 4 types of brushes
- Art Brush
- Pattern brush
Calligraphic Brushes: It reminds the strokes that are created using an angled point of calligraphic pen
Scatter brush: It can disperse the copies of any object or symbol along the path. They are scattered in appearance.
Art Brushes: It is uneven in appearance the initial level thickness will not be maintained until the final stage.
Pattern Brushes: They are made of individual tiles that repeat along the path. Pattern brushes can include up to 5 tiles, sides, inner, outer, inner corner beginning and end of the pattern
Scattered and pattern brushes gives a similar effect but the difference is that the pattern brush follow the path exactly whereas the scatter brushes do not.
