3 Videos – Week 5 – 52 weeks Adobe Illustrator for fashion design series – How to create a sparkle (shiny) sequins brush with pixels (scanned or photographic details)
During this week's tutorial(s), I hope that everyone walks away with something they have not tried before. We are going to have 3 videos covering the basic flat sequins brush creation, then step it up by dividing the different segments to create a dull sparkle and then in the advanced video we are going to create a brush that uses real images and change the pattern brushes' color right inside of Illustrator. You can watch the video on our blog below or on our youtube channel. The files that I am using in the video are available for download and for taking apart in the Free Member area (click here).
