    Post GIMP Brush for drawing Buildings

    I wanted to be able to put down drawings in a quick but realistic fashion.

    To this end, I created a animated brush. This brush will "paint" buildings along a path. I set it up to follow the curve with 18 degree image rotations, and it randomly chooses one of four building shapes.

    Attached are:

    - a sample showing how it strokes along a path (dashed red line)

    - sample map using this technique. I made the roads quickly using paths, stoked them with a wide brush in the road color. I then selected the road. enlarged the selection by 10 px, then converted the selection to a new path then stroked that with the paintbrush, using the building brush. A few pretty-ups (buildings were embossed and given drop shadow) and the road was given a gradient overlay to give the illusion of wear (and stroked)

    - the gimp brush (if it is allowed by the system).
