    How do you get the shape variation on that? Now Gimp has an image pipe for the brush, but as far as I'm aware there's no such thing for PS. Is that just done through the size jitter controls?

    That's exactly how I have my house brushes set up (in the Mapping Elements section). You set the size jitter to vary the size of the square but if you also add in a roundness jitter it turns them into rectangles. Plopping them down gives you some houses with ells on them.

    Yeah, really ugly but it's just a test ok

    This is the result so far:
    I'd love to see a detailed tuorial on how you setup this brush. I've read several posts that discuss using brushes of buildings, but this is the first post with a an example of this type of functionality (at least that I have found). I've learned so much more about Photoshop's capabilities from this community it's ridiculous. I'll play around with the brush settings when I get home and see if I can replicate this, but I'd welcome any explanation you could provide.
