With the Freehand Path Tool you can draw a path (much like the shape brush) the shape will then be filled with the selected color or pattern and outlined with a brush if so chosen. While drawing a preview line is shown that can be modified in pattern, width and color.
This tool can be particularly good for laying in large swaths of color quickly.
Smoothness and alignment to the Assistant Rulers of the strokes can be changed using the tool docker.
