View Full Version : Handdrawn Tree Brushes for GIMP

01-20-2010, 06:47 PM
I've never been very good at hand-drawing, so I'm not sure if anyone will actually use these, but since I'd made brushes out of them anyway for my current map, I figured I'd share :)

There are three brush pipes in the zip file, set to random. Tree Pipe - Boreal has the five trees on the top in the image below, Tree Pipe - Deciduous has the bottom five, and Tree Pipe - Mixed has all 10.

Not bad, man. I'm sure folks could use these as they look pretty good.

Yep, I'll probably use these in an upcoming map.

Cool! Glad they may get some use :)

I need something like this, but I'd prefer an isometric perspective.

An, if someone has ever seen something like that, a brush or icon that depicts a tree where elves would live (like the ones in Lord of the rings, not fearies or pixies ;) ). Since I'm not a good drawer myself I'm desperate to find something somewhere...

Yeah there are. Somewhere in this forum. Try searching for "handdrawn trees". You should find some.

For those of us who are GIMP-users... has someone developed a tutorial on building Brush-Pipes?

I could do that. Will nail it down later, if no one beats me to it. :)

Hmm, missed those posts during my hiatus. There's already a great tutorial for making pipes on the gimp site: http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Custom_Brushes/

Adding some hills and mountains in the same style; these brushes are filled with white (only in the actual brush part), so that they cover any stamps behind them. I'll be using them in my upcoming hand-drawn map tut.
