This type of brush is created with vector graphics,specifically :ref:`.svg or Scalable Vector Graphics <file_svg>`, which results in very small files and high quality brushes, because they can be resized at will without losing quality.
To create this type of brushes inside :program:`Krita` you need to :ref:`create a new Vector layer <vector_layers>`, then you can draw shapes, every shape will be considered a brush tip unless you group two or more shapes, in that case the grouped shapes will be a treated as a single brush tip.

Brush-tips:Animated Vector Brushes
===========================
Question
--------
I was saving a layer and noticed there is an option for Vector Layers to be exported as "AVB". What does it mean and how do I use it?
AVB stands for Animated Vector Brush, this is a type of brush-tip with multiple images which are used randomly with every stroke. The file is saved as a vector, which means the file is very small and the quality will stay the same no matter how much you resize the brush-tips.
  • This is only one of the modes supported isnt it?

    If you can number the library shapes, you could also add at least an "incremental/sequential" rendering of the dabs in the avb.

  • I actually wanted to ask about that because I wasn't sure on how would the user know which figure goes first and which goes last. Maybe the user doesn't need to know for now?

    But you are right. I will add it.

The typical way to create them is to first :ref:`create a new Vector layer <vector_graphics>`, then you can draw vector shapes, every shape will be considered a brush tip unless you group two or more shapes, in that case the grouped shapes will be a treated as a single brush tip.
You can |mouseleft| and drag over the shapes to select them and then |mouseright| to group the shapes.
When you are done creating your shapes go to :menuselection:`Layer --> Import/Export --> Save Vector Layer as AVB...`.
To import an .avb as brush tips you need to do it via the :ref:`predefined brush tab <predefined_brush_tip>`.
Then select the brush tips and you can start painting.
And use it to paint trees! (for example)
