Using vectors to create watercolor effects is all but an impossible proposition. Pure math, vectors are crisp, clean and clear, which are all wonderful features – until you want a more random, swirly, natural look to your graphics, while preserving vectors’ unique scalability with no loss of quality. To create a vector watercolor effect in Illustrator you would either use an autotraced raster image, or go through a tedious process of creating multiple gradient mesh blotches with varying opacity. All painful and taking forever to execute.
Vector Watercolor Kit is created entirely in Illustrator, using only vectors – no rasters whatsoever – to give you a 100% vector output. After banging my head against the wall for the longest time, I figured out the way to have fully scalable, resizible, re-colorable watercolor swatches in Illustrator that can be applied to any vector shape with a single click. And I’m very excited to share it with you!
