The Flowers

Well, looks like a couple of requests :) Thanks ladies.

Here's a preview.

The brushes come in black (with tint selected, so it will be the colour of your stroke when used), and colour (with hue shift selected, so the shades will change depending on the stroke colour). To use them, make a circle and then use the brush tip you want on the circle. You will need an extra circle for the centre of the flower, as shown.

Download link has expired.

You can download the actual brush set from here, I decided to make a separate brush file, instead of including it in the final Illustrator file.

Personal use only! Do not use commerically without contacting me first (as easy as leaving a comment). Thank you.

Doodled Flower Brushes

I like the look of hand doodled flowers. I've made some doodled petals in Illustrator and converted them to brushes, to get whole flowers, very neat. I made a whole bunch in October or sometime last year, around 52 or thereabouts. Anyhow, I wanted to make some more, to get different looks, but I guess 52 took it out of me as I can't seem to make anything that different from the originals.

If anyone is interested, I'd post them here and give out the Illustrator files for the new ones (a total of nine). Let me know.

Happy New Year

Woah, have I been absent from this blog, or what? Absent!

I hope everyone had or will have a Happy New Year! We watched the fire works in the city from our balcony and had champagne, very nice.

I've been playing around with stuff, as usual, but nothing new to report, as yet. I need to stop playing with brushes in Illustrator, and start learning some of the other features, like symbols (yeah, yeah, I know, I do, hee hee)

Nothing much to say, just checking in, yes, I'm alive, barely. Well, that's not true, I'm very much alive, just trying to focus and figure out what and where I'm heading this year. Isn't that what you are supposed to do in the new year?
