What sort of brush have you used there?
Thanks for the response.
It's a 3 point paper tooth brush I downloaded from the internet
Is it a calligraphic brush, pattern brush, art brush...?
Excuse my ignorance Doug, but how do i find that out?
Double-click on the brush in the Brushes panel and show a screenshot of the options there.
Thank you. Art Brush - see below.
This is due to the rather obscure way Illustrator treats these brushes as compond paths.
Drag the brush out of the brushes panel onto the artboard. You should see that the brush is made up of the irregular shape and a rectangle with no stroke or fill.
Using the white selection arrow, select just the filled shape.
Open the Attributes panel. There, change the fill rule from Even-Odd to Non-Zero Winding (you may have to show options in the panel menu to do this).
Using the black selection tool, drag the brush back into the brushes panel. Hold alt and drop it back over the original brush to replace it.
Problem solved! Doug, thank you so much for your help.
No problem, glad it was useful info.
