Krita Custom Brushes

These are some brushes that I made for myself for use in Krita. Most of them are Square themed, which I think creates an interesting painting experience. A lot of them have textures, and you should at least have Krita 2.5 to use them :)

Completely free to use in both commercial and non commercial art, no need to credit me or tell me that you've used them. (Though it would be cool to see what you guys do with them!)

No these do not work in Photoshop, Gimp or Sai. Since none of these are custom shapes, and just the default Square and Elipse shapes that come with Krita, there isn't any way to my knowledge to port these into another program, though they should be fairly easy to create!


HOW TO INSTALL

Download and extract the file. Go into the folder and select the brush icons, COPY them.
Find the Krita file on your computer and find the paintoppresets file, for instance "/home/(youruser)/.kde/share/apps/krita/paintoppresets/". It may be in a different folder especially if you use Windows . This is just where it is on my distro. I'm not entirely sure if these will even work on Windows. Paste the brush files into the paintoppresets folder. Restart Krita. They should now be in your brush presets!


I hope this works ^^' I don't have any other way to test them. Let me know if they work or not, or how to fix it if they don't. I've never made brushes for Krita before.

I can only add *kpp files but not bundles. The brushes are all in bundles. Do you know where or how I can get "unbundled" version of these brushes? like they are all separate and not grouped together in bundles.

Thank you so much for these brushes. *-* They work fantastic.

Btw. you can but the whole folder into "paintoppresets". Krita loads them anyway. Sadly Krita won't adopt the folder structure but it's nevertheless a good method to keep in mind which brushes comes from whom. Version: 2.9.3 for Windows. I'll test it with Linux as soon as I've set it up again.

Let me know if they even work XD word of caution, there is a brush in there that I now realize for SOME reason after its put down and picked back up is absolutely ginourmous. Its the square one that just has a stroke and no "dot" in the top right. I didn't realize that until late last night. I'll have to make an edited version of this with a less ridiculously huge brush

Yup, they seem to work! :D Which is more that I can say of my attempt to install Linux Mint yesterday, only to finally concede after several attempts that no, my system just simply doesn't recognize usb boots. Lose! xD Well, I guess I'll just order the DVD (<- no DVD burner, only CD burner).
