I received request on my comments and email about the Mypaint brushes I did or tweaked for making my little graphic novel 'l'héritage en couleur' . Here is a speed packed version with better icons.

Usage :

The workflow is explained on the making of here , artwork can be seen here :  L'heritage en couleur .

On the picture : 
1. The red pencil I use for my perspective
2. The same pencil in blue I use for sketching
3. The same pencil in black I use for 'inking' with a grain
( note : this 3 tools auto change color on selection for productivity )
4. The big watercolor brush I used for watercolor fringe effect
5. A small watercolor-like brush to detail.

Other brushes I used are already shipped with Mypaint in the set #2 


The link to download ( zip file, 99KB ):  2012-05-15_heritage-en-couleur_brushes.zip

To install :

Simply download the zip file , and open it in Mypaint with the menu Brush > Import brush package. You'll have a new group of brush named : hc_brush. You can then remove the zip file. I hope the brush will be compatible with Mypaint 1.0 user ; as I made them in a more recent development version on Linux.

Very nice, like the sketch pencils in TVPaint (red, blue & black, with auto color change). Very useful!

I am playing around with mypaint (on Kubuntu) since last week and I "discovered" Your Tutorials. And now there are Your brushes. It is amazing. Thank You very much!

Thanks and merci for the warm welcome of this very tiny and not really spectacular brush kit.

@Brett W. McCoy : Exact for Tvpaint :) I remember those brush very well. ( I joined the Tvpaint tester team right after my 'Mirage' period. Haaaa, I loved Mirage )

@Anna Lina De Sario : Good luck to finish your storyboard. Don't hesitate to post a mail if you want a feedback on it.

@Philippe Nicloux : Merci pour l'idée :)

@Ralf Schoofs : Cool. On Kubuntu, I detected a little bug on selecting preset and group, sometimes I had to click twice, or click other group items to make the selection more responsive. I already reported the bug. On Mypaint, my other brush are under the set#2 :)
