I wanted something similar to those nice swirlly acanthus type leaves used on money, important documents, and other ornamentation.
So I made my own version as a brush pack --

I call this pack 'Mycanthus' – since I didn't stick with traditional acanthus leaf designs -- but I'm happy with the way they look --
and they look fairly ornamentally - (is that a word???). -- But use as you like.

No rules for use as usual -- except please - don't repackage or try to sell them as your own...
They are watermarked -- (somewhere deep in the very structure of the vector itself)

Brush color is black - with tints and shades blending
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 swirlly or whavy type line
4. Apply bursh of choice
5. experiment with "stroke" size, direction, color, etc...etc...

A bunch of downloads is cool ------------- but ------------------ a fav – a link back to your work --
or just a quick note - or emoticon (ha) – makes providing free stuff a lot more worthwhile --- Thanks

Thank you for your generosity in sharing this beautiful pack of brushes. Just what I need for inspiration to create some original brushes for great horned owl feathers -- working on a large wall-sized digital mural for my sister.  Lyn Ian Fine Art | Behance
