[ V2.1 update for adding texture pack for 2.7pre-alpha , V2 published the 14 January 2013 ]
[ This article is an update of the old V1 preset for Krita , published in June, 2012 ]
I like to take care of my brush preset.
As a proverb in France say ; "Un bon artisan prends soin de ses outils" ( can be roughly translated by "a good worker take care of his tools" ).
So, here is the new pack of my presets ( reworked, cleaned links, cleaned dependencies , new icons ! ... what a work ... ) compatible with the upcoming Krita 2.6 and the dev version of course
I also added presets for the Texture option available in Krita 2.7 (dev) and later.
Content of the brushkit
Example based on picture, scrap, sketches,test found on my disk.
I pasted on the top the brush used to give you an idea of the rendering.
My inking, sketching and filling tools
A smudgy preset mixing nicely color with a sort of bristle simulation
My speedpainting tools : dry and textured, layering value in opacity
A mix of preset ; a dulling brush with soft bristles, splatters textures and experimental brush.
Wet techniques : using preset based on the mixbrush engine
Various demo of 'ready-made' pattern : clouds, grass, herbs ... I tend to less and less use this type of brush.
Experimental brush, splatters and airbrush
A sample preview of the smearing/smudging presets : Various textures
Miscellaneous presets : A tubular pen for drawing with geometric shapes,
A clone brush tool preset ready to use, and a airbrush in dodge blending mode, for speed highlights and Fx
additional preview for the extra pack of textured brush for 2.7
My preset don't use all 'brush-engines' proposed by Krita, only the one useful for my workflow and own preference.
Old V1 preset , less fancy
( but does the job ) for Krita 2.5, 2.4 and 2.3 and later
The tar.gz ( to download ) contain 2 folders :
brush and paintoppreset
you have the same preference folder on Krita ( on Linux : ~/.kde/share/apps/krita )
So, just extract them , to make brush in brush and paintoppreset in paintoppreset as in the picture bellow : folder view : click to enlarge
Uninstall notes : Brush have deevad_* as filename prefix , you can
easily identify them in your folders and erase them manually. Note for texture pack :
unpack the *.kpp inside the archive in the 'paintoppreset' folder of your ~/.kde/share/apps/krita
