edit april 2017: I added in new brushes that I've been using!! Mainly for painting backgrounds!

:new:Also, there's a video now of me using some of these brushes!

Download the set by clicking the "download" link on the side!

If that doesn't work for you, try my drop box!…
And here it is as a ZIP…

Compatibility: Works so far with both CS5 and CS6, probably CC too!

A complete list of my MAIN brushes! I added in the soft round and the new branch brush, which has been absolutely a life saver for when I get stuck on forest backgrounds!! Just slap it in and it looks done!
These are my exact brushes with the exact settings for them! You don't need to alter the brushes themselves AT ALL to make them work the way they're meant to. 
What you DO need to do is change some settings of yours!

.:Happy star:. =favorite/used a lot!!

Soft round: Used to do all of the basic color adding/blending right after the sketch! Use this to color. Also for shading!

Hard round: For close details like eyes, the mouth, and noses, as well as painting detailed fur! Can be used for any detailing (subject OR background) and for special effects like scars, lighting, water, snow, and blood!

.:Happy star:. Fancypants:.:Happy star:.  For laying down fur quickly and providing direction! Can use the hard round over it to give sharper edges afterwards. Good for doing leaves and small facial details too! I use this a lot. 

.:Happy star:.Sandstone: .:Happy star:. I've been using this mainly for painting fur! I love the texture it gives and it feels much easier to paint something when it's a little messy like this is. Set the flow low for blending, and high for stronger strokes! Also used for tree bark, snow, rocks, etc. Good all around brush! You could use this to create an entire illustration.

Forest: Self explanatory! Use in the background to show distance by layering them- start with the lightest in the back and get darker and larger as they get closer!

Tree base: Great for painting snowy trees! Good for trees that are close up or large. Place them down and add details on top using the fancypants or hard round!

Branch: Amazing brush!! It's just a section of the tree base cut out, but it really makes an impact in speedpaints. Perfect for giving a forest dimension and space!! Place lighter branches in the back/farther away and darker and saturated branches up in the front (also make them bigger!). Add over detail with the fancypants using a lighter color! Any time I'm stuck on a forest type background these seem to save the day. LOVE IT

:new:.:Happy star:.Tree bark: .:Happy star:.:new: Excellent for painting tree bark either vertically or side to side! You can also use it for the ground, for some lazy grass, and for charred material! I've been using this very often for my trees and I love the texture it has. You have to paint over the strokes a lot with other colors and get them right! It can be tricky. It's a good idea to have the light source picked out and minor details added before using this. I didn't make this and the link will be below!

:new:Fire and smoke :new: Very good for a smoky look or fire! Set the flow down to 50% or so to make this work better. I didn't make this brush and its pack will be linked below!

:new:Bushes and leaves:new: A nice one for treetops and foliage. It's easy to build on and paint over! I like keeping the flow high on this one. 

Other brushes: 
I use these for miscellaneous foliage!

Is it possible to use these in Medibang Paint, or is it just photoshop?

can they be used in FireAlpaca.

its hard to come across any good fur brushes for fireAlpaca these days and its kinda annoying to have to ask people if the brushes for other art programs would work for that specific one.

theres so many cool fur brushes that look like they do wonders, but i feel as if i cant have any of them do to the fact that I'm using a art program that witch is not used a lot by not so many people.

this is not agents your brushes or anything, I'm just telling people if they ever wonder the same thing.

shoot, it worked for me ): I wonder what's going on with it. 
There's the download button on the right side above "more from chickenbusiness", and one in the description linking to my dropbox. The one on the side worked for me, but if it didn't for you maybe try my dropbox?…
