    Thank you for this! These are probably the most intuitive brushes I've used; everything mixes as I would imagine. Most of them are smooth without much lag. And this is only a few seconds of practice with each brush:

    Man, very nice set of brushes :) Thanks a lot.

    Only one problem with water color brushes (using krita 3.3.3). I mean some brushes like that fluffy brush lightens more when i pressurize my pen and darkens when i lift up the pressure, which is sometime opposite of normally what someone do. :P Is that to emulate water coloring?! I can change the brush setting though according to my suitability. Probably just need to change the graph :)

    The brushes aren't working on the more recent instillation of krita (version 3.3.2) so I had to download a slightly older version (3.1.4) to get these working again.
    These brushes are great and I absolutely love them! But they should get updated for the newer versions of krita since they don't show up once imported or show up in the imported section!

    I recently updated to 4.1.1, and they seem to be working just fine for me?

    I’m sorry, but this comment is old. And was from January. 

    I only commented this because there was a weird bug on krita that refused me to import these brushes.
    It didn’t mean I was using the most recent version from now, but it was the most recent version at that time. Until I realized if I installed a slightly older version of krita the bug fixed itself.

    I have recently updated Krita to 3.3.2 and imported the brushset. All worked fine, all brushes show up and i can activate or deactivate bundles of the set. So i don't think that there is a problem with the brushset. Of course this does not solve your problem.. You can try this: Make sure the bundle files are properly imported and show up in the bundles folder (you can open the folder from the resource manager in krita). If the files are there, they obviously don't get loaded. There are blacklist files in the resource folder. Resources listed in this files do not show up in krita. You can try to edit or delete the "kis_resourcebundles.blacklist" file. In rare cases it might help to delete the kritarc file (path: share/config/kritarc), but you will also loose your last configuration including any customization you made... Last but not least you can do a clean install: uninstall krita AND delete the user folder (=resource folder). Of course you loose any customization you made.

    Hi GrindGod. I tried opening the bundle with my Krita version 3.0.93 and I wasn't able to. Is the bundle compatible with my version?

    There are several bundle files packaged into a zip archive. I could imagine, that you eventually thought that the downloaded file is the bundle? You have to unzip the archive and in there you will find the files to be used with Krita. I believe it should work with your version of Krita :)

    Yes, I just could not open vb2D_WATERCOLOR.bundle with Krita (get a notification that I don't have the application to open it for some reason). I really hope I can figure it out because I love what you've done!

    Ah okay. That indeed should not happen. You can try a fresh copy of the watercolor.bundle: Watercolor Bundle Source
    Alternatively you can download the old watercolorset (Krita Watercolor Set v1.01), which is identical, but not packaged into a bundle file. You would have to copy&paste the brushes and paintoppresets folders from the
    download to the krita resources folder on your system. You can open that folder directly from Krita (Settings -> Manage Resources Window -> Open Resources Folder).
    Last, but not least you might update Krita to a newer version. Even if there is no compatibility issue there could be also a problem with your version of krita - who knows...
