The open palette: Creating grungy Gimp brushes using Inkscape

Last time, we focused on creating orbs and 3D text using Inkscape’s new blur filter. This month, we’ll be focusing on creating brushes for the Gimp using Inkscape. Gimp brushes can be used as ‘stamps’ to rapidly create multiple copies of the brush shape; they can be smeared across the canvas; they can be tiled across the entire canvas to create unique textures. You can generate new artwork from the ground up or manipulate photos (think sparkle brushes applied to a photo of a person’s eyes) and other graphics using Gimp brushes. They are also very versatile tools because of the ease with which they can be created and customized.

The Inkscape techniques introduced in this tutorial are especially useful for creating shapes for Gimp brushes, but these techniques can also be used in creating unique shapes for other applications as well.

Look at the image for reference. 3) Because you need this selection for later use, it is a good idea to save the selection into a channel. 4) Back to the layer palette, duplicate the base layer and load its selection; then go to Select>Shrink; shrink the selection about 5 pixels. 5) Save the selection in a channel as you did with the base selection and name it Top; then Select>None. 6) Make the top layer active and go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur, blur the top layer about 5 pixels.
