Fake a Photoshop soft brush effect using Illustrator

his is a quick and simple way to create various shades of color in Adobe Illustrator. Using vectors has many advantages, for an effect like this being able to scale the shapes and reuse them over and over will give you the maximum quality without all the file size. This effect can be easily created and I’ll show you how to do it in under 5 minutes.

Check out this video tutorial that I created on Jing.com and please leave comments and post something that you created with this effect. Thanks for watching and stay tuned for the next tutorial.
