Hey guys! This time I just going to share with you another trick with GIMP and it basically allows you to create your own custom brushes. So, its just a simple tutorial on how to create basic brushes on GIMP.
So to start off, just open up a file, so click new and let’s say we have that image size of 64x64 pixels. It really depends on you and how your brush would look like, so I’ll just go to the standard 64x64 pixels and then we’ll select the advance options, and then we’re going to fill it with transparency. So you’ll have something like this.
Then, I’m just going to create a random shape. Well just say a circle. This is just for demonstration guys and I won’t go creative in this one. It’s just a simple design for you to see how easy it is to create your custom brushes on GIMP. And we’re going to duplicate this 3 times. Like so and then in each on layer, let’s say this one, so I’m just going to make an ellipse here. I’m going to color that with different type of colors or textures. I’m just going with flesh.
So, we’ll go to the next layer and we’re going to color this one with a pattern fill, let’s say pine, like so. And on the next one, I’m just going to go back to the color, let’s say this one. And the fourth one, I’m just going to go with another color. Let’s say blue and fill that up.
So, if you’re satisfied with your design, then we go to File and then click Save As. So, I’m just going to save it on the desktop and then we’re going to select the file type and we have a bunch of file types here. You have the GIMP brush, GIMP brush Animated, GIMP pattern. I’ll just go with GIMP brush animated or the GIH Format, Save, so it’s untitled. And then, it depends on you if you want 20% spacing, 10%, I’ll go with 20 and I’m just going to describe this as GEEKY. So we have number of cells is 4 dimension is one ranks. We’ll go with ranks, we have four ranks like so. Four ranks and if you’re satisfied with your settings, just hit Save. Here is our untitled brush type, you have a GIMP brush pipe as you can see. And then I’m going to close GIMP to load the brush, but before doing so, you have to copy your brush to this location.
So first, you go to whatever drive you have then GIMP-2.0/share/gimp/2.0/brushes. So, we’re going to copy what we have done in this folder like so and I’m going to restart GIMP. There we go, so I’m just going to hit a new file and I’m going to try out my new brush. You go to brushes and here’s my brush, it’s named “geeky” and let’s try it out.
So there you go. There’s my own brush which I had done a while ago. It’s not that creative, but it is a simple way of showing you guys how can you create your own custom brushes. So, that’s for GIMP.
