The biggest problem is to manage the brush orientation.
Having a brush with the same image oriented differently in each layer don't
Of course you can link the orientation with the a tablet pressure, but it's
not practical and don't help for path stroking.
For now, as far as I know, the only way would br to create 8 brush 0? 45? 90?
135? 180? 225? 270? 305? and to use them with a pen tool alternatively around
the letters :(
Inkscape is more suitable for this job
