I've had this problem now with any of my custom made brushes, that they look completely different when applied from as I originally designed them.
As you can see in the screenshot I'll attach, the detail is mostly gone and even changing the transparancy of the brush does not bring back the finer lines and details. The top set of little hills is my original design, whereas the bottom set of little hills is when I use my original design as a brush.
If somebody has got an idea how to fix that to make the brush look like my intended design, I'd very appreciative of any help.
Have a great day and Thank You in advance!
I'm using GIMP
Top:original Bottom: As brush

  • Hi. Welcome to GDSE. GIMP 2.0 is very old software. Have you tried the most recent version of GIMP, currently 2.10? – Billy Kerr Aug 31 '19 at 16:45
  • Ui, no I haven't. I'll try again with GIMP 2.10 Thank you. If that fixes the problem, I'll let you know! – Ellon Feyneth Aug 31 '19 at 17:12
  • No, sorry. Updating to 2.10.12 didn't resolve the issue – Ellon Feyneth Aug 31 '19 at 17:28
  • If above doesn't solve the problem, please state: paint tool used (pencil, brush, other?), tool opacity, tool dynamics, tool paint mode (if not Dynamics Off), as well as layer blend mode of the layer you paint on. – xenoid Aug 31 '19 at 17:34
  • Hi xenoid! Thanks for attempting to help! Here's the data of the image I shared: paint tool: brush (with pencil it looks even more terrible) opacity: 100 tool dynamics: dynamics off tool paint mode: normal layer blend mode: normal. The thing is, all other (not mine) custom brushes I use work perfectly fine. So I guess, I messed up in the creation somewhere, but have no idea where exactly. – Ellon Feyneth Aug 31 '19 at 17:45
