Ivy by kabocha


Bullet; Red May I use your brushes in my print / comic / other thing I'm selling?

Bullet; Orange Do your brushes work with SAI?
No.  SAI does not recognize the ABR format.  Its brush engine is also very different from Photoshop.  If you want to use my brushes in a program like SAI, I'd recommend using an image pack if available, and pasting them like stock.

Bullet; Yellow Do I have to tell you when I use your materials?
No, but I do like seeing what's done with the materials I've made!  Feel free to share!

Bullet; Green What are the "Converted Brushes"?
These were brushes which were created by Axeraider70.  Years ago, we came to an agreement that I could convert them to a format compatible with Photoshop 7.  ...I don't have Photoshop 7 anymore.

Bullet; Blue Can you make your brushes work for versions of Photoshop older than CS2?
No, I cannot, and do not actively support it.  If you need to use my materials for older versions of Adobe's software, please use the image packs to create your own brush sets.

Bullet; Purple Would you be willing to make a brush set for me?
I cannot, unfortunately.
