Hi guys!!!

Woohoo!!! We're entering a new FireAlpaca era!! 2.0!!! :dance:

Here's what's new:

- It is now compatible to brush script (script control brush).
- Preset brush for brush script has been added.
- Marker, Symmetry, Analog-Pen, etc..
- Brush script is quite flexible so please use wisely.
- The max. size of brush is extended to 1000 px.
- Brush Control displays the option menu now.

So what in the world is a Script Brush? From the little I've played with them, it feels more like your regular Photoshop or SAI brushes and they respond to the angle of the pen (in Wacom tablets and others which support this function). When you click on "Add Script Brush" on the bottom of the page, you get the option of adding .bs files without the use of a bitmap. I'm guessing they are vector-based brushes and thus they can become way bigger than a bitmap brush without losing their sharpness.

:star: How to add a Script Brush :star:

1- Download or locate your .bs file
2- Click on the "Add Script Brush" button on FireAlpaca. It's located next to the Add Bitmap Brush button, at the bottom of the Brush Pannel.
3- Select the file you want to use and it's done!
4- Now you can play with the settings, as always, by double-clicking on its name on the list. However, some settings will appear on the Brush Control Pannel, very handy indeed!

To be honest, it's my first time seeing .bs files but a quick Google search produced this fantastic set for MangaLabo. I tried downloading and it worked fine with me:…

Tip: do try the Symmetry brush. So much fun!!!!

Fire Alpaca is a FREE image editing software, simple but really easy to use, and working in both Windows and Mac!
Download it from the official website. Available in English, Japanese, Chinese, Corean, Portuguese, Spanish, German, French, and Russian.

:bulletred: I'm running on Mac and I can't use SAI, can I use Fire Alpaca?
Yes! It works really well in both Windows and Mac. Since it's a lighter, simpler program, it is not a substitute for SAI, but it does include some cool features like pen tool correction and watercolor custom brushes.
