Vector Week couldn't end without Vector Chains by =pica-stock. Suggester's words: This is a great brush to be used in Illustrator to create a variety of chains. Beautiful line art and shading make this a great addition to vector portraits and more!

This is a pattern brush, without corners (chains usually dont have corners ;)).

i made these brushes for an upcoming artwork of my main account ^pica-ae
they are based on the Create a Gold Chain Pattern Brush with Illustrator tutorial, that can be found atVectortuts+
that it is based on a tutorial is the main reason i submit this awesome brush as stock :B cos anyone can do it :w00t:
it's really not that hard, and you should try and make your own pattern brushes too :eyes:
they look different than in the tut, mainly cos i used a different reference image ;)
please enjoy, and let me know if you use them :) i would love to see what you make of it :heart:
