how to create brushing effects?

Recommended Posts

Personally I would use a real brush, real paper and real (black) ink. When dry use a scanner to get the image into Pdn where you can isolate the brush strokes as objects, resize/reposition and colour them as desired.

It could be done just using plugins or clipart/ fonts - but would take 10 times longer and look 'synthetic'. ;)
