Fanciful Tree Brush for GIMP
Hi All, don't know if this will be useful to any of you or not, but I was playing around with different ways of making trees in GIMP for (non-hand-drawn) style maps and came up with this little Tree Hose Brush. It's not really too photo-realistic, but might be fun for a fanciful artistic map (for lack of a better name).
To install the brush, download the attached zipped file, unzip it and save the .gih file to the "Brushes" folder of GIMP. Then either restart GIMP, or hit the "refresh" button at the bottom of the Brushes dialogue in GIMP and you should see the Tree brush within your brushes.
To use it, figure out what brush size you'd like to use (it's optimal between 12-25px), and then tick the "Apply Jitter" box in your the Tool Options for your brush (I set the "amount" between 2-3). Anyway, hope you enjoy.
