With Adobe Fresco, you get a large collection of brushes, both raster and vector. And you can use them on the same canvas.
When you want to create an artwork that must scale well to different sizes, use vector brushes. You can even export the artwork from Adobe Fresco and work in Adobe Illustrator, which is one of the most sophisticated tools for vector graphics design.
Vector brushes in Adobe Fresco give you a natural drawing and painting experience and outcome.
Follow these steps to choose a vector brush and customize the brush settings to get the brush you want:
- Double-tap the Vector Brushes icon.
- From the list of brushes, choose the brush you like.
- Change the brush size and smoothing property if required.
Tap the Brush Settings icon and tune the brush settings.
The brush you choose from the list of brushes, the brush size, the level of smoothing, and the settings in the Brush Settings panel - all these help you make the brush right for you.
|Brush type||Use this to...|
|Basic Round||Create natural and fluid brush strokes.|
|Basic Taper||Control the thickness of the brush stroke with tapered edges.|
|Basic Flat||Cover large areas of the canvas quickly.|
|Basic Chisel||Get a sharp chisel effect while drawing mountains or stones.|
|Basic Terminal||Get precision in machine and equipment drawings.|
As you change a setting, you will be able to draw and preview the effect live in the Brush Settings panel.
Use the slider to adjust the thickness of the ends of your brush strokes. Use the begin and end taper controls to taper the beginning or the end of your stroke. Maximum taper is achieved by moving the slider to 100%. At 0% taper the stroke remains at its default thickness.
Use the Begin Taper to adjust thickness at the beginning of the brush stroke.
Use the End Taper to adjust thickness at the end of the brush stroke.
You can now get a tapered effect at both ends of a stroke by using velocity and pressure control simultaneously. To get a sharp stroke ending, customize your brush settings, then draw a quick stroke.
Use the vector trimmer to quickly remove intersecting vector strokes.
To trim your vector strokes, activate the secondary state in Touch shortcut, then swipe once over the vector segment you want to remove. To completely remove a stroke, swipe three times over the stroke. When you lift your finger or stylus off the canvas, the entire stroke is removed.
