STEP #3: FOLLOW ALONG. If you are following along on YouTube, I recommend starting with our 100 Adobe Illustrator Beginner Tutorials Playlists. This playlist will focus on Building Tools, Applying Brushes, Editing Options, and Basic Coloring Techniques. *I have included our Resources (as a free bonus) to follow along with the 100 Tutorials Playlist on YouTube and 50 Step by Steps on the Website. 

200 ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR BRUSHES. Our (Updated) Adobe Illustrator Brush Libraries are specifically designed for Illustrators and Cartoonists to speed up their workflow. I have recently added more brushes and updated the Brush Libraries to allow for Pressure Sensitivity. Brush Libraries include our 70 Cartoon, 100 Comic Strip, and 50 Vintage Mascot Brushes.

EXTRACT FOLDERS + SAVE BRUSHES. The first step is to download the Brushes Folders. They will come to you as a Zipped Folder. Once you have Downloaded and Extracted the Brushes Folders, the Brush Libraries are Ready to Use in Adobe Illustrator. You can open them directly through your Brushes Panel or Save them to your "User Defined." Save Brush Libraries to User Defined for Fast Access or simply Open Brush Library.

Includes 70 Adobe Illustrator Cartoon Brushes specifically designed for Cartoonists and Illustrators who are looking to speed up their workflows. Use Cartoon Illustrator Brushes with the Pen, Pencil or Paint Brush Tools to Apply different Line Variation to your Vector Artwork. Includes 70+ Cartoon Brushes (libraries include the Updated Cartoon, Cartoon 2, and Original Cartoon Brush Libraries).

Includes 100 Hand Painted + Comic Strip Brushes to get a lived in feel back into your Vector Art. Comic Strips and Hand Painted are painted based on some of my favorite artists and cartoonists. These brushes are designed to look ready for the Sunday Paper. Includes 100+ Brushes (libraries include the Updated Comic Strip, Hand-Painted, Paintbrush, and Fine Liner Brush Libraries).

Includes 50 Jittery Hand, Caffeinated Cartoonist + Rough Ink Brushes to Mimic Paper Bleed and Caffeine. Designed to be a little less stiff with your vector art. Use these Brush Libraries to get more of a distressed look or ink bleed back in your own Vector Artwork with heavy ink and a little more wobble. Includes 50+ Brushes (libraries include the updated Caffeinated Cartoonist, Rough Ink, and Jittery Hand Brush Libraries).

70 ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR HALFTONES. Our Halftones and Patterns Fills are designed for easy application even if you are new to Adobe Illustrator. Halftone Fills behave the same as a Color Swatch so you can apply them quickly using the Blob Brush, Live Paint, or Basic Fills. Simply Paint in Halftones into your own Illustrations and Comics. Halftones include our Comic Strip Halftone Fills, Pattern Fills, and Halftone Value Scales.

COPY - PASTE COMIC HALFTONES INTO ARTBOARD. All you have to do is Copy and Paste them over into the Artboard you are currently working on. The goal of this step is to get the Halftones into your design so they populate into your Swatches. The Halftones will automatically populate into the Color Swatches Panel to use with Fills, Strokes, Live Paint, and Blob Brush.

Includes 70 Distressed Halftone Textures and Pattern Fills to use in Adobe Illustrator to use for spot textures within your artwork or comics. If you are new to Adobe Illustrator, Halftones and Pattern Fills are extremely easy to use. They are designed for easy application just like any basic color fill but they have Halftones. Halftones are seamless and scalable. Each Halftone can be recolored or scaled up or down to fit your own artwork or to change the scale of the pattern itself.

Includes Halftone Value Scales and Pattern Fills which are extremely easy to use even as a Beginner. They are designed for easy application by simply clicking on a Halftones Pattern Fills just like you would on a regular Color Swatch. Apply the Halftones using the Blob Brush and Live Paint on your Designs or Comics. Halftones are very flexible since they are Pattern Fills, you can scale them up to get more Chunky Halftones or shrink them down to get a more Subtle Texture.

Includes Halftones and Pattern Fills to use with your value layers. You can simply duplicate the Layer and Click on a Halftone Fill to apply Textures. The Halftones and Pattern Fills do have a transparent background. Patterns can be recolored in the Patterns Panel to match the desired look of your artwork. The Halftones and Pattern Fills do have a transparent background so that you can layer them with your Flat Color and Cast Shadow Layers.

400 ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR BMP TEXTURES. Our BMP Textures are extremely easy to use even if you are a beginner to Adobe Illustrator. Simply File-Place the Textures over your finished artwork to use with the Transparency Panel for soft overlays. Use BMP Textures along with Opacity Masks for T-Shirt Distressing. BMP Textures include our 145 Cracks, 120 Grunge Distressing, 75 Paper, and 77 Paint Splatter Textures.

USING OPACITY MASKS: This method of masking is used a lot for T-Shirt Design (using your own original artwork). The idea is to have the garment color shine through your own design. The Texture will not print but rather cut through your design to give a vintage or worn appearance. First select your finished design and the BMP Texture. Go to the Transparency Panel and click "Make Mask." Toggle Invert and Clip to get to the desired look.

120 Grunge Distressing Textures to Apply Opacity Masks to your Own Original Artwork and T-shirt Designs. Use BMP Textures to apply Grunge and Distressing Effects to your own Artwork and Designs to use with the Transparency Panel and Opacity Masks for T-Shirt Distressing. Use Opacity Masks to punch the Texture through the design to show the garment color on your Own Original Artwork.

75 Paper and 77 Paint Splatter Textures to use along with the Transparency Panel to create soft texture overlays for your own original artwork. This is great for those of you who are using Textures for Web, Print, and Social Media Sites. Use Textures with a combination of Color Swatches, Transparency, Blending Modes, and Clipping Masks to create a subtle texture overlay on your print or web exports.

145 Cracks and Distressing Textures to Apply Opacity Masks to your Own Original Artwork and T-shirt Designs. Use BMP Textures to apply Cracks and Distressing Effects to your Artwork and Designs by Applying Opacity or Transparency Masks for Adobe Illustrator. Use with Clipping Masks to only apply Textures into specific areas or just place in to use as a Global Texture to your Artboard Export.
