Butterfly Brush Set

2nd butterfly brush i've made, this one is higher quality with a mere 52 different brushes, some are repeat species but not repeat poses. they are rather larger in size (only 14-26% of their original size in the preview, zipped file is over 13MB) than my previous brushes and will hopefully be more useful this way, and have their antennae this time too! some also have legs if they weren't flying.

use the brush sizing tool to resize brushes smaller, and you might be able to make them a little bigger without it looking bad/pixilated. if you want to change the brush, open it as an image, adjust, and save. then refresh the brushes and use the changed image like normal.

i wanted to get more poses than just the open winged shot that is seen at museums, as well as a variety of species, so special thanks to all the stock artists whose images i used:


do NOT redistribute as your own brush work. it took me a lot of time and effort to make these brushes, and I'd love it if you would comment on the brush with a link if you use it. the stock artists probably wouldn't mind a note either. Favorite-ing would also work, and would let me know they are liked.

Credit in the artist's comments is a must!

EDIT: the almost solid red/orange butterfly in the bottom right corner has been removed from the pack (originally 53 brushes) due to recognition issues from that stock deviant that couldn't be resolved to his/her satisfaction. i didn't feel like remaking the entire preview to exclude that one butterfly.

I'm using GIMP, but I can't get them to show up in color. Any idea why not? Thanks in advance!

wow - clearly I'm not on here enough!  I'm not sure - they may be outdated for the new software.  Were you able to find an answer elsewhere in the last, like, 4 months?  lol!
