Seeing as how I can't draw for ****, I decided that I need a way to have GIMP draw some hops cones for me. I was hoping to find some readily available GIMP brushes out there in the interwebs, but I was unable to find any. So I made some. I found some pictures of various hop cones and paired them down to drawings. I converted those drawings into brushes and thought I'd share with anyone here who wants them. These don't look anywhere near as cool as if someone had drawn them by hand in inkscape, but maybe it will help someone. The link to the zip file that contains all 10 brushes is http://www.frontrangebrewery.com/files/hops-Brushes.zip and here is a sampling of what they look like.



Edit: Forgot to mention that you need to unzip these brushes to C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\brushes (assuming you installed to the default location).

I think they would work on a Mac. You need to put the brush in the brushes folder and I have no idea what path that would be.
