Wow... making this Set has taken more time than i expected! It's the most complete and biggest work on Brushes i made until now.

Okay - more about this Set... As usual when i create Brushes i set the Focus on Digital Painttools (Simulating Real brushes/pencils) and Texturing with "premade" Effects and special brushes like Grass/Clouds/Foliage and so on. But for nearly every Brush, i had on my mind, that it is usable in a lot of different ways and that it is not to specific.
Every Brush in the Set is fine adjusted so that you could start painting without worrying about dynamics or Brush Settings too much.

So here is what you get:

- all brushes organized by usage
- 162 different Brush Tips
- 70 Dynamics
- 251 Presets


- The Brushes are made for the use with a pressure sensitiv device (Graphic Tablet). You can use them with a mouse - but with a tablet its more fun^^
- The Brushes are made with Gimp 2.8.4; All Presets/BrushTips and Dynamics are made by me. There is nothing modified or copied from other Sets in it!
- The content is free to use commercial and non-commercial (CC-0).

Installation Instructions:

Windows
LINUX


(included in the Download)

Extension: The Gimp TextureBox

okay this is probably a dumb question, but I'm new to gimp. I was wondering if the presets work the same as presets for photoshop? and if not what are they? like what do they do?

It is not the same. Gimp uses a file, that stores the brush settings. This includes, what brushfile (.gbr) is used by the preset, as well as the paint dynamics that are applied. The dynamics are also stored in a separate file (.gdyn). In photoshop all these informations are baked into one brushfile (.abr), that could also contain many other brushes - all in one (sometimes) big file. While it is a little bit complicated with gimp it also offers more flexibility, but the photoshop format is - well - more user-friendly...

Can these be used in GIMP 2.6? Sorry but my headstrong tablet refuses to work with 2.8.

If I were betting, everything would work fine except for the presets and dynamics as they changed the way those work in 2.8 and up.

how to convert these to abr (photoshop)?

That is not easily done and you could only use the brushimages, without the settings, that define their behavior, because they are specific to gimp.

I came here looking for an alternative to Jazza's custom photoshop brushes and it looks like your pack is the closest im going to get. It's a brilliant, extensive pack filled with more tools than I'll need but there are so many that the pack is overly complicated... If you have the time a guide to these brushes would be nice. If you don't have the time, chill, just a short one telling me which brushes are most similar to Jazza's and how i could change some to be more like his brushes because after opening the tool presets section, I'm overwhelmed...


Thx

Sry i am not familiar with Jazza's brushes. You have to find out for yourself what you need.., but i guess you'll find the most useful brushes under the BASIC, PENCILS and PAINT categories.

Can anyone help me? I've tried downloading brushes for my GIMP 2.8, but it never works. The "download" seems OK, and I follow the directions for unzipping and drag/dropping into the GIMP brush folder, then I bring up the program and do a "refresh", but the new brushes are nowhere to be found! Any advice???

In the .gimp-2.8/brushes folder should be three subfolders: BB - Basic, BB - Natural and BB - Texture. Please check if these folders are present and if they contain actually brushes. Next open gimp and be sure you have docked the brush panel. In this panel open the filter menu. There is a small down arrow on the right side to open it. BB - Basic, BB - Natural and BB - Texture should appear here as filter-tags. If this is not the case you can check if the paths to your custom resources are set correctly. Go to the Menu - Edit - Settings. In the window on the left side is a category: Folders. In this section you can set paths to any sort of custom resources. Check the path for brushes and eventually add the folder where you have stored the files.
