AD - Pixel Brush - Repeating Element Problem.

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

I have been given a pixel brush that draws 9 different flowers when you paint with it. The individual flowers draw randomly, repeating themselves up to 9 times before changing to the next flower. The effect, represented by letters, is like this:

AAAAAAAAABBBCCCCCCCDDDDDDDEEFFFGGGGGHIIIIIIHHHGGGGFFFFFEEEDDDDCCCCBBBAAAAAAAAA

The flowers draw from A to I then I to A and so on - you get the idea.

I want the brush to draw like this:

ABCDEFGHIABCDEFGHIABCDEFGHIABCDEFGHIABCDEFGHIABCDEFGHI

that is, one flower (x 1 image), followed by the next flower (x 1 image), and so on until they have all been painted; when the process repeats from the beginning, rather than the end, which goes backwards.

I have played with all the settings I can find to achieve this, but to no avail.

Is this possible, and if so, does anyone know how to do it, and would they kindly tell me, please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for your reply.

File is attached.

The brush was made following the instructions in this video, so credit to the Youtuber.

Many thanks for your file, so far I've been unable to set up a Pixel brush that would allow for this - but I've asked for some further input from our product experts to double check this.

In the meantime, could you use a Vector Brush? I note in your title that you're using Affinity Designer, and a Vector brush would allow for the exact same pattern to repeat each time (ie ABCDEFGHI, ABCDEFGHI etc)

Hi Dan,

Thanks for getting back and your efforts. I will look into the vector solution.
