    Default A new take on Ramah's Aronbor Brushes for Gimp

    Hi all, I had a question about how these are looking.

    This is done as a .gih with a spacing of 20. The right and left are just done as individual inputs while the middle is done just dragging the brush along in a long line from upper left to right and then adding a spur in the same manner. I guess the real question is, is 20 enough spacing? Should I make a couple of different ones with different spacing? Gidde, I am guessing that yours were at 100% spacing.

    The brushes were originally made by by vhailor27 here and then as a gimp brush set by ElenaBlackRose here and here.

    This second set did not, in my opinion, address the issue of masking the mountains in the back ground. As you can see this new set achieves that.

    If there was another version with "low shadow" rather than "high shadow" that would also be very useful.

    They look pretty good to me. The outside ones look too spaced but the middle one looks fine.

    Man, I wish PS had a feature similar to Gimp's pipe brush thingymajigs.

    @Juggernaut: Do you mean just the shadow on the ground or the shading on the mountainside? And would you want some, but less? Or none?

    @Ramah: Yeah the outside ones don't look too swift. I had the brush set on random size and with the pipe you get a different mountain each click. The ghost image of the brush is the first in the series so it tricked me every time with brush placement. I also must confess that I did it with the touch pad on my laptop, so you get what you get. I think I'll play around with the spacing feature and post the results just to show what I mean.

    [EDIT - You can change the spacing on a pipe with the scaling slider at the bottom of the brushes dialogue so I don't need to do that.]
