Krita Brushes v4

image data/images/blog/2014/05/v4-brush-com-a.jpg

This resources is outdated and unmaintained : it won't work with recent version of Krita.
Check the download category to find the most recent brushes.

Here is my 4th brushkit for Krita. A little 5x5 grid of my best tools.
As I keep painting daily, I also keep tweaking my brush-set on the fly, day after day.
I saw I was more productive with less brush, so I reduced the amount of them.
This brushkit is a personnal one, suited to my technics, and style. It's not a generalist brush kit.
Have a fun time painting with them !

Download ( stable ) :
Github repo :

The brush are compatible with Krita 2.8 and probably future versions
License : CC-0 /public domain.

To install them,  unzip, and paste the three resulting folder ( brushes / paintoppreset and patterns  ) into your Krita user preference directory ( exemple on linux )
You can also open your preference directory inside Krita : Edit > Ressources > Open Resources Folder , don't forget to restart Krita after

Here is a demo of brush stroke made with them , for more infos on other presets, look at the previous V3 guide :

and a rough speedpaint with :
( for more demo, just look at my artworks from last summer to now ; especially Gooseberry ones )

Thanks a lot! So far I've only used the standard brushes, it's great how much of a difference these make.

Ummm, just discovered this program and saw the link to your brushes.

Quick question, there is already a patterns folder inside the krita resource folder, do I write OVER it? Copy the stuff in your patterns folder into it's pattern's folder, and if I do is it okay to rename the ones you have that are the same as the default one?


  David REVOY

@Ronald Stepp : Hi, yes you can merge the folder of pattern I provide with your ; no risk :-) But don't rename ressources; you'll pobably have some broken dependencies in your brush preset if Krita can't find the proper filename.
About Patterns ; Krita usually also save them embeded in the *.kpp and extract them on the fly ; so it shouldn't be a big problem in any case.

Hi! Are there any reason to install all the different versions or are they just updates and I should go for the last one?

  David REVOY

@Adam Abrahamsson : Hey, Adam,
Yes you should go only to the last one. I keep previous version around for system with old version of Krita ( they can't really install newer version ).
I'll publish an update soon ; when Krita 2.9.8 will be released because they fix something interesting about brush and ressources management.
