How to Create Scribble Effect in Adobe Illustrator



Have you ever wanted to give your illustrations a more “hand-colored” feel? The scribble effect within Adobe Illustrator is the perfect way to achieve this look! All you need is an artboard, some solid shapes, and a few clicks.

Step One:

Create or select the shape in which you want to change the fill of.

Step Two:

Go to the Effect drop-down menu at the top of your screen, next scroll down to Stylize, hover over and choose Scribble at the very bottom.

Step Three:

The Scribble Options panel will open on screen, from here you can choose which setting you think best suits your illustration. Like most other effects in Illustrator you’re able to preview what is happening to your selection in real time before clicking OK.
