Especially in trying to balance AI's hadling of the brush --
(making sure it wouldn't crash everyones system when applied)
and making it look somewhat like real water.
I almost gave up ----- twice
The more realistic it looked ---- the slower it would apply
The more stylized the water elements -- the less it looked like - water
But I think I was able to achive a balance of the two --
at least it works on my system -- and I'm pleased with the look
( They may slow yours to a crawl -- some feedback would be nice -- if you use ---- or just play around with )
No rules for use as usual -- except please - don't repackage or try to sell them as your own...
They are watermarked –
Being Illustrator you are encouraged to edit, bend, change, and mutilate to your hearts content;
just have fun and make stuff.
1. Download -
2. Unzip to - Adobe Illustrator\Presets\Brushes
3. Draw circle or whavy type line
(squares and sharp angles may require a little extra work to get them to look right )
4. Apply bursh of choice
5. EXPERIMENT with "opacity, blend modes, stroke" size, direction, color, etc...etc... to get the look you want
It doesn't have to be water ----- It could be any kind of liquid --- or whatever
a fav –--or just a quick note - or emoticon (ha) – makes providing free stuff a lot more worthwhile
Also link showing how you have used them (if you use them) --
would help me come up with some new ideas as to what types of burshes or other resources would be useful to the community.
(see new poll)
I'll be putting the thumbnails in the edit comments so others can see your work
example of use
Se ven geniales, llevo intentando crear pinceles que se asemejen a los distintos elementos, agua, aire, tierra y fuego y no había visto unos tan bien creados, tampoco encuentro tutoriales donde me enseñen a hacerlos y que no parezcan de caricaturas, de verdad se ven geniales, felicidades
If it works. It will save load of me time and also save my ass. And also it need 100 words to be able to have this? after all it didn't save that much time. eh? ye y y y y y y y yy y y y y yy y y y y yy y y y y y y yy y y y y yy y y y y yy y y y yy y y yy y y y yy y y y y y yy y y y y y y yy yy y y, seriously, why?
Thanks for this really technically detail resource love how it looks amazing and realistic and strong texture,creative, also very helpful to use in different projects and to see how is done textures like this also shows a great deal of hard work and commitment to this project.
Keep working as in this wonderful vector i look forward to see more and enjoy it, at the same time grow and give back to the community.
Thank you for the resource again keep working with the same quality. Good luck and keep on going in any new idea you want to develop.
I know you put these brushes up a while ago, but this is an outstanding resource you have made, both technically and creatively. I love the chaotic nature of them. And, as you say, not only will they do for any sort of liquid, but they are really wonderful to employ just as texture.
Not really a critique but more a plea... it would be lovely to have a tutorial on how to employ these properly. I find the opacity and blend settings are less subtle in illustrator than in ps, and it would be nice to see some examples of the brushes employed.
Again, thank you for your generosity in sharing these.
You got some serious talent.
Amazing job. I am using them for a school project.
Thanks for sharing your outstanding work!
I even made an account on this site just so I could put this comment here
