I have created a brush in Adobe Illustrator. and when I apply that in a circle the shows a start and end point, there is no continuity!

Is there any way to solve it?

Thank you.

Art Brushes have a beginning and an end. They will always show this beginning and end.

If you want a continuous brush that appears to have no start/stop you need to use a Pattern Brush. Whether you can get the same general appearance from a Pattern Brush is another matter. In this case, I suspect one could create the middle brush pattern with a very long piece.

If one is merely seeking some width variation in strokes, it's often easiest to not use a brush and set a Profile for strokes in the Stroke Panel.
