I'd like to make a pattern that looks like a brush stroke (just like in Photoshop). Like this:
Given a brush tip and a curve pattern, generating the brush stroke.
Of course I can just paint this in Photoshop, but I'd like to make it procedurally, so I think Substance Designer may be the right choice. I know there is Shape Splatter, but it splats the shapes all over the places. How could I make the brush stroke like above?
You could try a shape splatter but add shape scale and height scale controlled by the curve (use the multiplier sliders).
In addition use a bevel and normal blend to feed the vector map input and use that vector map to control rotation (thanks to @Luca Giarrizzo for that last tip which he showed in another thread recently)
