Digital art is everywhere! With more and more devices being developed, and with the advancement of software used to create digital art, coming up with unique artworks using modern tools has become much easier.
There are tablets specifically made for digital art creation and gone are the days when you would have to use just your mouse and crude brushes to create the effect you want.
Today, there are more advanced tools like digital pens and even software which allows you to create realistic and more texturized brush strokes. To learn more about using Adobe Illustrator efficiently, sign up for a hands-on Illustrator training class.
I really like how digital art looks more real by having genuine-looking brush strokes. The texture and depth they add to the artwork makes the piece look more like what you would get when using an actual brush – far from monotonous and obviously computerized, if you know what I mean.
Brush strokes make digital art seem more natural, and having a variety of brush strokes to choose from can be highly beneficial when you’re a digital artist.
If you use Adobe Illustrator for your digital art creation and would like to have varied brush strokes, you’re in luck because there are tons of free brushes you can download online. I’ve browsed many different sources and collected the ones which I think will give your artwork more life.
From creative to more traditional-looking strokes, I have come up with a collection of Adobe Illustrator brushes that will give you access to about 1,136 different strokes!
If you feel as if your art is looking like a repeat of what you have previously done, add a new twist to it by using these fresh brushes.
Make them a part of your artistic arsenal and see the difference they can make to your digital illustrations. Enjoy these modern, abstract, creative, and traditional brush strokes for your new artwork and digital creations:
