Its that time again. Illustrator Brushes! You might recognize a few of these from this free vector set. These are some foliage Illustrator brushes I used to make the that set of freebies, along with a lot of new ones. So, theoretically, you could take these brushes and make your own set of free foliage vectors. The possibilities are endless with this set because I also included the simpler brushes that the more complex ones are comprised of. I also included AI, SVG, and EPS, for InkScape users, or anyone else who doesn't use Illustrator. Don't forget to play with your stroke size to get your most desired results! Download below.
A Closer look at the Brushes:
Download CS3 (Brushes)
Download Ill8 (Brushes)
Download AI (Ill8 Vectors)
Download EPS (Ill8 EPS Vectors)
Download SVG (SVG 1.1 Vectors)
Even though it has an .ai extension, the file you downloaded (if you downloaded one of the Brush Libraries) is an “Illustrator Brush Library,” not an actual Illustrator file. You will not be able to open the file in Illustrator.
1. Unzip the File.
2. Copy or move the file to your Illustrator > Presets > Brushes folder.
3. Restart Illustrator If it was open during installation.
After you restart Illustrator, you will be able to load the brushes by clicking on the little arrow in the upper right corner of the brushes palette. Or go to Window > Brush Libraries > and choose the file from the list.
