On Your Own

By now, you are probably experimenting by creating all sorts of brushes. After all, this is fun! Hopefully, your creative mind is considering how you can use the brush feature in your drawings. The power of brushes is apparent when you need to use an object or effect repeatedly. If you just need two copies of an object, cloning the object is easier and quicker. If you want to use an object multiple times with varying lengths, then creating a brush may be the way to go. And because a brush is created from a symbol (or symbols), you are not drastically increasing your file size.

Here is something you can try. Convert some text to a symbol and then create a brush from the symbol. For the brush option, use Paint, and change the scaling to Flare. Change the minimum scaling to 30 percent and the maximum scaling to 200 percent. Experiment with these settings to create an appropriate look for your text. After you create the brush, draw a curved path and apply the brush. Pretty cool!
