Hey guys, I'm working on a project that requires a fluid brush stroke to sort of follow through the entire video. I have tried bringing in brush strokes from photoshop and masking them on, but it's not quite the effect i'm going for. I'm attempting to do something more like the stroke in this video: If anyone knows how to accompish this, you'd be a life saver. Thanks!

You can use similar techniques like in the tutorial below using Trapcode Particular. One thing you will have to do is animate the size and shape of your particle (texture) to get the variation in the stroke.

thanks for the suggestion! this is pretty close, and probably the right technique.

if i do like you said, and animate the size of the particle, as well as the rotation & shape, i'm hoping it will more closely resemble a watercolor or wet brush. thanks!
