I'm trying to create a tree in Illustrator CS4, and I'm using single paths to do this. I then offset the path to create the branches.
What I'm wondering is how I can taper the branch via offset path. So the start point is large and the end point is smaller.
Thanks for your help!
You could use an art brush in the form of a triangle. The "Set of floral brushes" in the brush libraries gives you an impressions of how brushes could look like. To create one yourself, draw a triangle with the polygon tool and drag it into the brushes palette.
Brushes are definitely the way to go. No need to complicate things with offset paths.
