How do I create this please?

Hi folks

I'm relatively new to - and learning - CS4, and was hoping someone could suggest the best way to create this flowing shoal effect - made out of colored fish outlines?

Many thanks in advance
Create a brush out of a load of fish and apply it to a line. Just cut and paste the fish into the brush pallette. By cs4 I assume you mean illustrator?

And when creating the brush don't forget to adjust the scatter settings accordingly... also to create the illusion of depth to the shoal you could tweak the opacity settings under scatter so that some of the fish appear closer than others - that would work nicely :)

I've done quite a lot of illustration, check it out if you're interested: digital illustration
