Hello! I'm not quite sure if this is the right forum I should be posting this, if not, please move accordingly. Thanks!

I am currently working on a Parallax Map for my game. As I was trying to draw a path, I couldn't, since when I try to use a dirt pattern (In Photoshop) with the 'Pattern Stamp Tool', the texture is totally messed up, no matter what kind of brush I use, it looks like this:

This is an example the kind of dirt path I'd like to achieve:

I was wondering what could be wrong, please!

Thank you in advance!

Did you try disabling the "Impressionist" setting in the toolbar? If that doesn't work you could also try to reset your brush settings.

Actually THAT solved my problem:rswt. Thanks a lot!

PS: Any recommendation on free brushes I could download to make natural-looking paths?

I don't have any particular recommendations for such brushes. But if you find one please let us know!

What I did in the past was simply to use a hard default brush and make it a bit bigger than the actual path I want to create. The bigger path then gets drawn on a new layer with the pattern tool (only a rough shape is needed here). Afterwards I grabbed a soft default brush for my eraser and manually refined the edges of the path.

This might not be the easiest or fastest way but gives enough control for a decent looking path :smile:

I found a very decent brush. The Number 127 - Legacy Brushes - Natural Brushes. It can create natural-looking paths or even realistic grass shapes. You'd need to use the eraser with a considerably low hardness on the edges and you will get a good result.

Thanks a lot for the help and good will, Grim. God Bless you.

I consider this matter solved :)
