**Freebie** – Illustrator Brushes

Free Illustrator Brushes - LineartI’ve mentioned before that I wanted to make some of my more useful brushes available to anyone that’s interested in experimenting with Illustrator brushes and here they are. This is a set of pretty simple lineart brushes that I use often.

  1. I experimented with brushes years ago. I’m getting interested in using them again. I had the first guest tutorial over at AiBURN and its on making ai brushes. I downloaded these that you made and I’ll play around with them. Thanks.

  6. Hey I just wanted to say thanks, I’ve been using a few brushes that I’ve made a while back and had a few other ideas last night to try out, but I’m looking forward to trying #5, along with 8,9,&10. Though I still think it’s important for people here to remember to make their own brushes and experiment. Try to visualize how the brush will work and look before using em, that way you can do it in reverse when you need something for a project and it’s just not looking right…

  7. Thanks for sharing



  8. I’m late to the game, but thanks for posting these!
