Texture pack 1

Published on

[ Update: This resources joined the default patterns in Krita 2.9 and above. You probably don't need to install it, just go to the pattern, they should be already installed ]

Since few days, there is a lot of activity around the 'textured' brush feature started by Boudewijn Rempt  and continued lastly by
bug-tracker topic about it


  • 2 canvas  ( thin , and rough )
  • 4 papers ( default, C , torchon )
  • hand drawn pattern ( dot , hatching )
  • textures ( rocks, bark, wood, crackles )
  • 3 dynamic screentones

I followed this specifications :

  • 512x512 max with a lot of details
  • Pixels infos from black to white, normalised with most of 50% mid-grey value
  • Seamless , tilable to infinity of course ( thanks Gimp Resynthesizer plugin )
  • Removed duplicate : my original set contained more than 50. Similar effect or neighbours were removed.
  • *.png compressed, easy to manage on file explorer , with thumbnails and cross compatible. 
  • prefix of filename 'deevad_' for organisation, and easy removal if needed.

various sample of stroke effects

so... how to install that?

@Bjorn : hi, you don't need to install it now ; just go the pattern in Krita directly and they are all already installed ; the Krita team bundle my texture with every Krita since version 2.7 and above.

You are Amazing David! Thank you for sharing these. Do these textures & brushes work with photoshop & other softwares?

@Jazyl Homavazir : Thank you ! Compatibility depends. On my side I use open format ; very commons as JPG, PNG, etc... So , textures will work anywhere for sure. Brushes is another problem , each software pass the data in it's own way. Probably not possible to use them in other software than the one they were designed for.

So how do I install this? I am using Krita 2.9.10?

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

@Corey Bruce : You don't need to install the pack in Krita ; just go in the patterns in Krita and they are all already installed by default ; the Krita team bundle my texture with every Krita since version 2.7 and above. I'll try to add this info on the article.

I am totally new to Krita software. Can anyone share with me how to get the pre loaded textures (not the pre-defined stamp brushes) to work on my canvas? I click on the pattern icon up on the toolbar at the top...I choose a pattern, but I don't know how to apply it to my canvas. I am using a laptop with a mouse and don't have any kind of drawing tablet. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Michele;
Yes, the top toolbar socket is used only for the fill-tool. It is a known ergonomy issue but hard to resolve.
For using texture with the brushes, it is the "texture option" in the brush editor.
