Learn how to draw and paint with vector brushes in Adobe Fresco.
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.

Draw thinner lines, facial features, and complex objects with ease.
Create even lines, frame lines, and backgrounds with utmost precision.

Use the sliders to control the shape dynamics of size and the jitter distance sensitivity of your stylus.
tilt & rotation
Select the check box to enable the tilt and rotation for your vector brush.
Using rotating you can turn an object clockwise or counterclockwise. You can also tilt an image slightly to one side or the other.
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.
