Ilanthar - That's excellent about GIMP. I'm glad they worked in there.
These brushes have a setting for pen pressure. I use a pressure sensitive screen so that is why the sample shows the size variation.
If you are just using a mouse or having it follow a path it won't have that effect.
Love the caterpillar hill brush, but I'm having trouble reproducing your examples in Gimp 2.6.12. How do you get the lines of the brush to remain perpendicular to the path? When I use the brush to draw a circle, say, all the lines have the same orientation (north-south, say).
Tuomo - It is a setting in PS under brush settings>shape dynamics>angle jitter>direction. I am not sure how that differs in GIMP. I will have to install it and check that to be able to give you a better answer. I assumed these PS settings would be the same in GIMP.
Edit - from some looking around it appears that GIMP, Krita and some of the other free software do not support all of the brush features/settings that are present in Photoshop.
It sounds like they are trying to implement some of them but with difficulty. I will keep checking to see if I can give you any more clarity on this issue.
