Installation worked. Usage is a different story. All i get is a black blotch, or a green blotch etc.

What are the actual Krita settings to use the brushes?

What one makes it easier to paint fur?

Good looking fur is always complex ; but a brush stamp/tip with multiple dot tends to ease the first steps.

I just recently started the switch to Krita, and used your previous brush pack as a starting point for my personal brush set. I'm interested to see what's new in this one! :)

No, these are specifically for the Free and Open Source painting software Krita. Krita has it's own powerful brush engines that can do all kinds of crazy things.

These are not simply the texture brushes you are used to in Photoshop, they have all kinds of unique behavior to them.

I suggest you to try it out, it's very powerful, and available for both Windows, Mac and Linux.

The brushes are lovely so far! Thanks a lot for sharing! Though I have a question, the brushes seems to be lagging and not keeping up with my pen, do you know why this may be? Like maybe there's a stabilizer somewhere I need to adjust (still trying to accustom myself to Krita)
