I'm having trouble with a work flow of drawing in fresco and then converting it to line work for clean up in illustrotr for desktop.

the  vector brushes in fresco are vector in look only as micheal said as blob brush in illustator, you cannot change its width after drawing.
 
usually i use to edit the fresco artwork by photoshop, not by illustator.
 
i can say that fresco is bitmap based not vetor as per my experience on it. i have done so many stories drawing on it.
