Using the brush feature in V 0.02 of Path Scale Copy Rotate Shift Walk

The final outcome:

Step 1:
Create a New image 1000 x 1000 px.

Step 2:
Select the Path tool. Create a walk path by placing two points in the opposite corners of the image.

Step 3:
Select the Path Tool. Create a copy path as an arrow with one barb shortened.

Step 4:
Set up the colours. Black fill the image background layer and choose a gold metallic gradient for the current gradient.

Step 5 – the gold line shape:
Set up filter for pattern layer 1.
Create a new transparent layer
Call up the filter dialog.
Use the defaults with:
Rotation angle = 10
Force full revolutions = Yes
Repeats along walk path = 1
Colour option = Use current gradient in sequence
Run the filter on the new layer.

Step 6:
Set up the brush and filter for pattern layer 2.
Create a new transparent layer
Set up the brush you want to use with the filter.
Choose a textured brush – I used a brush intended for use as chalk texture. The brush spacing will probably need adjusting. The initial spacing was set as 20 which produced a much too solid line for my purpose and I reduced this to 105. I also added brush dynamics that with some random opacity and sizing.
Call up the filter dialog and make the following changes.
Path width = 10
Stroke path method = Currently selected brush
Run the filter on the new layer.

Step 7:
Set up the brush and filter for pattern layer 3.
Create a new transparent layer
Set up the next brush you want to use with the filter.
Select another brush – I used an animated (pipe) confetti brush. I again reduced the spacing to 105 and kept the same random opacity and size brush dynamics.
Call up the filter dialog and run the filter on the new layer.

Step 8 – introducing a pop of colour:
Set up the brush and filter for pattern layer 4.
Create a new transparent layer
Select a colour brush you want to use with the filter. I used a flower animated brush – if you do not have a suitable animated brush you could use another brush with a texture and choose another coloured gradient to use with the brush.
I altered the brush spacing to 54 to add more density and turned off the brush dynamics.
Call up the filter dialog and run the filter on the new layer.

Step 9:
Order the layers to give the best effect.
I placed pattern layer 4 (with the pop of colour) just above the black background in the layer stack.
Then I placed the other two gold brush layers above this and the gold line layer at the top.

The outcome is the result of lots of experimentation - so feel free to try out lots of different brushes to get your own spin on it.

Thank you so much Skinnyhouse for your detailed tutorial and time invested in it. I continue learning. No nice result on my side but I-ll try to improve your technique. :thank_you:

Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a new chance to rebuild what you want.

Personally (well certainly with my example above) I still think that the lined paths are needed to add sharpness to this sort of play. OMG may (hopefully) prove me wrong with his work. Perhaps the rotation angle needs to be greater so that the brush strokes don't cover up the pattern - maybe - only more play will tell.
