    How do you make these lines?

    Hello,
    Does anyone know how to make these curvy lines. It strikes me as a brush of some sort, I have seen them a lot on WAX.com and I have always wondered how they make them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks you. The site is www.tiggerstudios.com

    Have a nice day.

    i guess that could be made in illustrator, but it'd be hard to get it to look good...

    I think it can be done in Flash as well - something almost similar was done in one of my flash tutorial books that i could recreate quite easily - well they took u through the steps but it gave that 3d effect + u could then animate it

    I did a quick search and found the exact 3d image on the internet as a tutorial. Go to http://www.music.swt.edu/Flash/Vortex/FlashVortex.html

    I'm not sure if it will help you though, but i'm sure you'll be able to manipulate it to how you want it.

    Well...

    The concept is the same, apparently you can have a line and just duplicate it and off set it, but a bunch of times. Does anyone know for sure how to do what's in the pic? Another example is here:

    I do...but

    I do have illustrator, but I do not use it much, that's why I am asking for help from experienced users. I have illustrator and had it before I posted the request for help. If its Illustrator I need to use, I have it and I am ready to learn. Thank you.

    you can do that easily in illustrator. you make two lines. select the end point of each line and use the blend items tool. it helps if you make the lines curvey and of different weight and color or shades.
