[ 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 airbrus

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

My preset don't use all 'brush-engines' proposed by Krita, only the one useful for my workflow and own preference.

Uninstall notes : Brush have deevad_ as filename prefix , you can easily identify them in your folders and erase them manually.
