Tilt-Sensitive GIMP Brush by GlacialErratic Tilt-Sensitive GIMP Brush by GlacialErratic
It is a brush that aims to behave like a pencil. The line becomes wider as you tilt your stylus, perpendicularly to the tilt direction.

The sample image above was made with a single brush, by holding the stylus straight above the tablet (center image), and by tilting it vertically (left image) or horizontally (right image).

INSTALLING
There are two folders in the archive: Linux and Windows. Go into the folder corresponding to your OS and unzip the two GIH brushes into the brushes subdirectory of your GIMP config directory.

NOTE TO WINDOWS USERS
For some reason the X- and Y-tilt directions of the stylus seem to be reversed in GIMP for Windows. This is why I have to provide a different version of the brushes for Windows. This doesn't work yet, I'll look into it very soon.

Just wanted to let you know I tried this on Mac (Gimp 2.8) and it works by using the linux version. I didn't even have to try the windows version :)

It is about tilt, not pressure.

Do you know if there's a way to make the cursor visually tilt with the pen?

No, it has been annoying me too. Someone would have to patch the GIMP I suppose. But since tilt dynamics are going to be implemented in GIMP 2.8, probably they'll have this fixed as well.

Does this work for MacOS?

I don't know, but you could test it and tell me about it!

By the way, if it doesn't work properly -- the axes are inverted -- in Windows, it is because of a GIMP (or Windows?) bug, not because of the brush itself. Please let me know if you try it!

You're welcome! Unfortunately I wasn't yet able to fix the Windows bug. I guess one would have to take a look at GIMP's code. :-(

It feels so strange for the Windows users to be the ones with the weird issue that has to be worked around. (I run Ubuntu)
