Does anyone know if these work with v3.0? These look really nice and I'd like to add them, that is if they work ^^;

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.

Hi!

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)

Hey, It might be also possible my brushes are just really ressource intensive. I use them on multithread CPU with minimum of 2.5GHz of power, And work most of the time at 50% zoom of the viewport in canvas size between 2K and 4K.

It's also can be possible you have a stabiliser checked ; check the tool option while using the painting mode, and in the list, select 'No smoothing' for being sure this not really affect your machine.

If you want to improve the performance of a brush ; it will affect the quality ; you'll need to change in the brush editor the 'Precision' slider to a lower value. Most brush of my set use a high precision ( 4 on a scale from 1 to 5 ); this  is to be sure to get the best rendering. You can also enlarge the spacing of the brushtip dab a bit, and finally a last radical optimisation is to delete the usage of a texture inside the stroke if the preset is using it.

Good luck !

Sadly, Krita in itself is already extremely resource-hungry (I dare say, ridiculously and illogically so, because Krita barely even runs on the same hardware that a friend uses to create 8000x8000 pixel digital paintings with 200 layers in Photoshop...). For me for example, even the most basic auto-brush lags behind unless the image is relatively small and I use a small brush diameter with very short strokes. This is a real drawback, rendering Krita technically unusable for anyone who doesn't own an expensive setup.

So it's mainly a problem with Krita in general, rather than your brushes.

If you are able to, please let the Krita devs know, what a huge issue this is for everyone without a powerful PC (which is a major part of the amateur/hobbyist/aspiring artist community).

I suspect the devs all own power plant PCs so they will never feel/notice this.

In my opinion, this is probably the primary roadblock stopping Krita from dominating the digital painting scene, as in otherwise, I personally think it just blows away everything else when it comes to digital painting/drawing.

Up to this day it still lacks a functioning auto stroke. I recently started using Krita, the 2.9 version, and I can confirm that it still holds these same problems. Sometimes it does not register that I have pressed on another tool nor reads my brushstrokes correctly.

>> If you are able to, please let the Krita devs know
I'll do but it's better if you do it yourself ( via the bug reports ). The most they 'll see new users taking time investment to open a bug report by themself, the most the project leader will rise the priority of development.  I think they know how to improve this, but this is a big rewrite of a core part, and they'll need to hire development positions for month in order to get this CPU optimization running. They 'll probably request a new Kickstarter crowdfunding in 2015 for this.

>> I suspect the devs all own power plant PCs
The developers rarely paints, they test stroke, sometime does little drawing, but are not directly concerned by the stroke performances.
The testers ( a group of volunteers users building the code almost daily to bug report, and give feedback )  have rather good PC , yes. Here I use it on a icore7 2.6Ghz + a Nvidia GTX card for openGL canvas ; and I work on large project without much performance issues ( yes, it's a 'invest in hardware , rather than in software workaround solution ). I also suspect poor performances happen for Windows users more than the Linux version. 

>> I personally think it just blows away everything else when it comes to digital painting/drawing
Same :-)

Thanks for your detailed feedback !

I was actually thinking lately about how could I effectively contribute to Krita. I'm not a coder [of the type and level required] and can hardly pay my bills so coding and monetary contributions are sadly out of question. I have my opinion of course, but I guess opinions are always in abundance, and it won't directly help with anything.

I used to build Krita from git based on your tutorial, and gave Dmitry some logs and feedback for troubleshooting tablet issues. But that was before I started actively using Krita. Now I use the stable Arch Linux package because I need Krita daily and if a version has issues I will lose several hours without being able to work. If there was an easy way to have both versions installed parallel so I can fall back to the stable if need be... I did that with Wine, having both the stock and a manually patched versions parallel, but it takes quite some messing around with it every time I compile the latest with my patch, and doing that daily with Krita would break my nerves. :-O

Going to check around the forum now...

Okay, I played around with the precision slider and that helped a lot with the simpler brushes at least. Smoothing didn't do much of a difference. I may have to hold on until I have an actual computer someday rather than a laptop, it's probably not powerful enough to handle Krita. For now I'll reserve Krita for fun-looking backgrounds!

Oh you upgraded your brushset! that's sweet :) your brushes have been serving me well (the drawing pen from v 3.0 in particular I've used a lot), and will continue to do so until I have the skill to create my own. But for starters, how do you actually create these brushes for Krita? is there a guide somewhere I could follow to experiment with creating my own?

You can search on Youtube, there is a bunch of videos about the basic, and also with the sliders and the edit panel , you can figure alone 80% of the parameters easily. It's just need time, and trial and error learning.  If you want to package them, and clean them ; it's a bit more complicated, and the best doc is probably the tips and trap summary of GrinGod 's blog :
