Sorry if this is ignorant (I know almost nothing about programming), but from what I know all brushes in MyPaint are created/generated from dots... Is it completely impossible to add an option to replace the dot with an image? I think bitmap brushes will make MyPaint A LOT more attractive.

Triaging: marking as a low-priority "wish" since it's a feature request and not a software problem.

(Basically not without select of some sort at the very least. A good mockup of how it'd be supposed to work would be useful too; there are a lot of levels to this.

But it's probably not worth chasing this one in great detail. Painting with bitmap brushes is not a direction we're ever likely to go in due to MyPaint using a completely different brush engine model.)

It would be nice to create a pattern or a design in mypaint and use that pattern as a brush or it will be even better if we could select a specific part of image and use it as a brush.
