Blob Brush Butterfly by Daniel-Storm Blob Brush Butterfly by Daniel-Storm
Blob Brush Butterfly
Illustrator CS4, 8.5X11

Assignment for Illustrator class, take a photograph and use the blob brush to render it in Illustrator. I chose a photograph of a Tiger Swallowtail on a Zinnia that i posted here earlier [link] . The blob brush is a new tool to Illustrator, and it was fun to work with. My Professor gave me an “A” for this effort, even though i rushed the lower wing to get this done on time.

In Illustrator CS4, the Blob Brush Tool (Shift + B) is located between the pencil and the eraser. It was a new tool when i took the Illustrator class, and we had to do an entire drawing using it. :)

It will connect to other blob brush strokes of similar color, and it also blend easily into another stroke.

Thank you! It was fun. I enjoy learning Illustrator, but would be content to live forever with graphite and oil paints. :wave:

This looks amazing, Dan. We need to get together soon so that we can exchange software knowledge. I'd like to know more about this "Blob Brush".
