Yanagi no Illustrator Brushes

Q: It tells me it's a PDF file! I can't use this!
A: Sometimes the browser will say it's a pdf file. Right click on the download link and use the "Save as..." or "Save target as..." function and it should display the right extension. If not, then download it as a PDF, but change the extension to .ai once downloaded.

Q: How do I install these?
A: Save the file to your hard drive in your \Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator\Presets\Brushes folder. Next time you run Illustrator, the brushes should be listed in your brush menu.


Some simple brushes for Illustrator CS3.

I wanted to figure out how to make them, and also fill a gap- the lineart brushes out there for Illustrator are few and far between.

Enjoy. ^^

There are sparklies in it! Something I sorely miss from Photoshop!

I've been looking for Illustrator brushes that would resemble authentic ink lines. These look very close to what I've been looking for. Thanks for making them! =)

These wouldn't work for me, and I'm bummed. I use a mac - downloaded as you instructed and changed the file extension, but they won't load in illustrator. Just when I thought I'd finally found perfect lineart bushes D:

I like it but I can't change it to an ai format, I can rename but it won't change :/

Do you have windows set to display known file type extensions? If you don't then you're only changing the name and not the extension. ^^; [it defaults to that on win xp and higher]
