I created a new Adobe Illustrator brush set based on old Kirby Krackles from the comics.
They work really great and will save you a lot of time. It used to take hours lining the paper with dots to create energy patterns. But now with the Illustrator brush set you can do a whole page within seconds.
Here is the link to my devianArt page where you can download the brush set.
To use it in Illustrator go to WINDOW>OTHER BRUSH LIBRARIES and find the file on your computer.
To modify the brushes to your liking just open the file like a regular Illustrator file. They work in Illustrator 10 but may be able to be used for CS or CS2.
I hope you like it!
