We were able to ship support for Art and Calligraphic Brushes in our 2.0 release. But there is more to be done for Import / Export of (atleast) these Brush types. We’re keeping this thread open for your feedback. Thank you!
I spent hours today trying to figure out where/how/what to look/go/find any kind of "paint brush". Surely they didn't release Illustrator without that? But I think you did and that is soul crushing. I actually find it more than perplexing . I have been SO excited about the iPad release. Even to the point I went out and bought a new 12.9" Pro with tons of memory, dreaming about all of the beautiful illustrations I would create in Illustrator. What is really the point of Illustrator on the Ipad without paint brushes? Back to that "other" iPad software, but if you ever do come out with this feature I will be an "insta convert" but until then, nah.
Have more brushes! (like a tapered brush), allow to add, export, and make custom brushes.
Easily delete overlapping lines like in CSP.
Include patterns like half tones for comics we can drag and drop inside shapes.
Allow gradients and patterns to be applied to the stroke.
We can choose which part of the stroke to change the width instead of all of it.
Have an option to do an even width change or freehand.
Be able to fill color within the visible strokes/lines instead of shapes.
If I could transfer brushes I made on the full app the here or able to access them via cloud that would be very helpful.
Yes. This blob Brush doesn't serve. (Never understood this brush since you can do the same with Expand and Pathfinder)
Not changing in fills but keeping it as a single path so you can apply different brush strokes afterwards, and keep the vector path so it's also useable for animation purposes.
At least a working paint brush tool that exactly works like the desktop version. Able to change the brush type and adjusting the brush stroke after it has been drawn, so not a fill like it creates now but just a single path on which we can apply brush strokes.

Have more brush options. Similar to the options on the desktop version, like watercolor brushes, charcoal, textures, etc...
Yes, it’s a bit frustrating not having them, specially not having the possibility to configure the existing ones.
Absolutely essential !
It's called Illustrator and no Brushes ??? Come on guys !
It would be nice if one could work with the same vector brush used in the imported desktop document. Looks like there is a possibility. When you look at the screenshot i uploaded.
This line is a copy from a line in a desktop file. Pasted in a ipad file.
When i put my apple pencil at the top end of the vertical thick line i can continue drawing this vector line with te pressure and tilt response. It feels and looks very natural.
Then when i lift up my pencil. The line stays selected wit the ancor points and all that. ( An option witch i'd like to turn of but i can't find the option in the ipad app)
Then i draw a new line. The little horizontal line
Unfortunately this is not the same brush anymore. It has edged ends and sharp corners.
Good luck with developing this great app
Please add brushes or let us import from brush library (which you need to create)
A normal brush tool, that utilizes calligraphic, scatter, etc. Brushes like on the desktop version and allows for pressure sensitivity with the Apple Pencil. The blob brush allows for pressure sensitivity for tapering and whatnot but it creates fills. I would like a regular brush tool that allows for pressure sensitivity and keeps my paths, editable as paths.
I've purchased several .ai brushes over the years and would love to be able to use them on my iPad. I tried loading them but it seems that's not a feature that's available. I'd rather not have to repurchase a whole new set of brushes for the iPad version of Illustrator.

Ability to import brushes from the cloud library or directly from iPad. Brush creation would be a great option too.
I came here simply to request this! I downloaded this as a preorder yesterday and so far it’s ok. Except I’m missing a good portion of the brushes I have in fresco, photoshop, and even procreate. What’s to keep me using this product that I don’t already have in another AND I can turn the canvas in the others?
Even just adding the default brushes from the desktop version would be huge!
Like the pencil brushes and tapered lines.
Ability to import brush files and create brushes
