When I create a stroke in Illustrator and try to outline or use the Blend Tool to make a series of strokes, the strokes become warped after I expand and/or outline them. I don't know how to fix this.

Hi there,

 

Sorry about this trouble. As Monika mentioned above, it would be great if you could share few screenshots or a small video of the workflow.

Also, please confirm if the the issue is related to a specific document or it's happening with new files as well.

 

We’re here to help, just need more info.

 

Regards,

Srishti

Without seeing an example of your art,  our ability to help is very limited. We need to know how these strokes are custom:

  • profile, brush, dashed, endcaps, etc

 

Try object >> expand appearance instead

 

You can also do a test by adding a live effect
effect >> path >> outline stroke 
You can then run for example simplify, adn that an clean up what illuistrator is not liking.
The live effect wil help you preview before you expand.
