Adobe Illustrator Custom Tentacle Art Brush

I like this octopus pot. So I tried to make a tentacle brush.

  1. Make a triangle, rotate it on it’s side, make it real narrow.
    Add a circle.
    Use Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform to duplicate the circles.
  2. Drag the tentacle into the Brushes Panel. When prompted select New Art Brush.
  3. A proportional brush will keep the aspect ratio. A non proportional brush will stretch out the brush.
  4. A bunch of tentacles drawn together with the brush tool looks more impressive.
  5. Add a head, and a couple of eyes. And it looks pretty decent

Oops, the final octopus only has 6 legs. Better luck next time.
