I have a graphic tablet and I need to create two brushes for calligraphy in Adobe illustrator. So I need to create the following brushes:

  • A brush gives the same font of the a real pen such as Uni-ball rollerball Eye 0.7m.
  • A brush gives the same font of copperplate nib (Brause EF66).

Example

Both those nibs essentially lay down a round tip. Any difference is how the ink hits the paper, not from the tip itself. I'm afraid you'll have to be a bit more descriptive in your question with possible samples of the lines you wish to create. Otherwise, you can simply use the built in blob brush set to a small radius. –  Scott Jan 31 at 9:23
    
well I need a brush that gives the same line of a pen –  HTML Man Jan 31 at 9:26
    
Every pen provides a different line. You will have to provide samples. –  Scott Jan 31 at 9:36
    
I did, please check the example. –  HTML Man Jan 31 at 9:58
    
Okay, that sample was not created with a Uniball roller or a Brause EF66 nib. That's created with something more along the lines of a Speedball C0 nib and the talented hand of a calligrapher. If you are seeking the varied line weights, have you looked at the Width Tool in Illustrator? Have you tried creating a flat brush and using it as a calligraphy pen? There is nothing automated which is going to be a substitution for the talent and skill of a calligrapher. –  Scott Jan 31 at 10:13
