Bristly brush strokes are great for creating distressed designs with a hand made appearance. I’ve posted plenty of Photoshop brushes in the past, but I haven’t shared much in the way of Illustrator brushes, until now! Download this free pack of 24 vector brushes for Illustrator. Each brush stroke can be used as either a standalone graphic in your designs or applied with the Brush or Pencil tool to add rough texturing to your artwork.
This free set of dry brush strokes contains 24 vector graphics and a complete brush library for Illustrator. They were made by manually painting whispy strokes with a paintbrush then the results were scanned and vectorised to create useful vector resources. These kinds of brushes are great for creating authentic hand painted effects in your artwork. Apply them with the Brush tool to quickly freehand textured highlights and shadows in your illustrations.
