Krita Brushkit v8.2

Published on

Update: This resources is outdated and unmaintained : it won't work as intended with future version of Krita (after Krita 4.2) Check the 'extras' category to find the most recent brushes. Also, you probably won't need it because an enhanced version of this brush pack joined the default brush installed with Krita 4.x: I managed them. :-)

I wanted to have something looking good and useful in my preset docker. That's how I started this new version of my brushkit for Krita, the serie 8. As usual with all my brushkit (I maintain them since 2009), I decided to distribute them for free, for anyone. I also took time to write here a full description of every 64 brushes you'll get in the pack. All this big work couldn't be possible without the support of my patrons. This brushkit is a free bonus on the way of more episodes for my webcomic Pepper&Carrot.  A big big thanks to them!

Merci beaucoup pour ce nouveau kit de brosses.
Une petite suggestion pour tes futures vidéos : pourrais-tu mettre une petite icône ou texte dans un coin indiquant avec quelle brosse tu travailles à chaque fois que tu en changes ? Ça permet de mieux se rendre compte des possibilités de chaque outil pour les débutants comme moi.

Bonne continuation.

Thank you lots! I downloaded it and used it for a while, and I loved using the blending brush, but one time I came back, the icon was gone and the brush wasn't working anymore. I tried to take off the pack and re install it to the program, but it still did not work. Any ideas on what to do?

Installing a bundle is not hard. Download the file ; unzip it, then open Krita ; and load it in the resource manager.

merci beaucoup pour ton set de brosses
elles sont vraiment très utiles en complément de celles que j'utilise le plus souvent.
ça m'a même permit d'augmenter ma "productivité".

petite apartée, mais il m'est arrivé de voir planter krita 3 (appimage en 64bits) sauvagement: un crash avec perte de données.
en général c'est quand je m'excite un peu sur des raccourcis claviers...

est ce que ceci t'es également arrivé?

j'ai peur d'utiliser la version appimage à cause de cette instabilité.
je préfère Krita 3 pour la nouvelle gestion des calques + options sélection,
cependant l'ancienne version , celle installée, me semblait beaucoup plus stable bien que moins pratique.

bref, sais-tu si il va y avoir une version installable de kRITA 3?

merci

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hello :) Merci pour le retour.
Oui, j'ai constaté la même instabilité , mais sous Ubuntu et derivés... La version de Qt par là n'a pas l'air terrible.
Appimage, j'ai testé, c'est cool, mais j'ai eu du mal pour l'integration dans le systeme.
J'ai donc réinstallé ma machine sous Manjaro XFCE ( là, c'est 100% script xsetwacom, et pour la calibration des couleurs le paquet displaycal ). Le paquet de base Krita 3.0 s'installant en un clique sur Pamac (leur gestionnaire de paquet ayant l'air d'un synaptic moderne) m'a permis de finir le dernier episode un peu plus sereinement.
3.1 est bientôt aux alentours, avec pas mal de petits correctifs et quelques fonctions supplémentaire.

Pour une version installable; cela dépends de la distribution et de leur politique de distribution.
Manjaro fourni les paquets des dernières version presque aussi rapidement que Arch Linux...

link renaud   - Reply

Merci David
Dommage pour l'instabilité, on va gentillement attendre que des personnes compétentes se chargent de régler ça.
je ferais avec car la version 3 est quand même bien meilleure (du moins pour l'utilisation que j'en ai)
par contre, désolé, car je vois que tu t'es investi dans ta réponse, mais en gros j'ai presque rien compris au jargon technique...
faut dire que je suis un utilisateur fainéant de linux; si ça marche, tant mieux, si ça marche pas, je pleure.

Autre chose: suite à notre échange au sujet du hack de game pad, j'ai fait un démontage de clavier et de la soudure et je me suis fait un mini clavier personnalisé.
dis moi si ça te tente, je peux faire un petit article et te le filer pour que tu le mettes à dispo sur ton site.

à tantôt

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Merci :) et pas de soucis pour le jargon ^__^
Ha oui, je serai intéressé de lire ce genre de hack sur les clavier ; surtout que j'ai un ou deux vieux clavier en stock :-)
A+

link renaud   - Reply

J'ai commencé à écrire un article au sujet du Hack clavier, il se trouve que je ne suis pas super à l'aise avec cet exercice, cependant, je vais quand même essayer de mener à bien cet aventure textuelle.
je pense pouvoir t'envoyer quelque chose pour la rentrée scolaire si tout va bien (car j'ai du boulot et une vie de famille etc)
Je te propose de diffuser l'article sur ton site, car à titre personnel, je n'ai aucune visibilité sur le net.

Hey I'm curios is there any shading tools ? Krita is very confusing for me still even after seeing this , and also is there brushes I should draw with ?? And is there any brushes that don't have the white mark inside of the thing after you used the paint can tool with???

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi Tay Tay,
Sorry but I don't understand your comment :
1. You can do shading with any brushes; it depends your way/technique to draw/paint.
2. You can draw with any type of brushes, in my brushkit I propose a set of pencils if you prefer a classic way.
3. I don't understand the 'white mark inside' part of your message.

link Fernando   - Reply

Hey David! This is awesome! To be honest with you. You are kind of a mentor to me. I realy love your work. Let me ask: do you plan to make a new version of Chaos and Evolutions in the future? Tks

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi Fernando, many thanks for the feedback.
About Chaos&Evolutions, I didn't thought about redoing it, but that's a good idea. The previous version show timelapse with Gimp~painter 2.6 ; and this tech is now really outdated.
I'm just a little bit affraid of going into the Kdenlive source of Chaos&Evolution. Kdenlive has difficulties here to open my files from 2014 ; so I have no hope for Kdenlive files of 2009...
It mean it will certainly need not only just to re-record timelapse, and adapt the video-editing ; but i'll need **to rewrite it from scratch** to update it ( monthes of work ).
But I'm really seduced by the Chaos&Evolutions² idea :-)
I'll keep it in a corner of my mind.

Yes, in the four lines of "licenses" chapter I written it: "This attribution is not necessary in case of usage (you can paint any artwork you want with it, you still own totally your artwork)." , So you can do artworks, share them, do commercial work with them, etc... without any issue and without to attribute the brush to me. Enjoy painting!

Hi. Thank you so much for providing these brushes, they are a great addition. I have a question if you can help please. I am new to Krita so this might not be possible but can I not put your brushes into the preset folders such as pixel, mix etc... or make a DRevoy preset folder rather than have the brushes only show up in 'all'? Having so many brushes in the one place makes searching for what you want more difficult. Thanks.

Hi Angle,
The brushes are auto-tagged with the bundle name.
You just need to restart Krita after adding the bundle.
It works here on a Linux based Operating System.

David, thank you so much for your efforts! Also thank you for magnificant materials on how use and to twick Krita to meet one's individual needs

I'd like to share one trick i've found out rescently about digital sketching -
I've read a lot of complaints (and I felt the same) with regards to 'plastic' feel of the device when draiwing with on a tablet's plastic surface. The trick to overcome it - just put a sheet of any paper you like on top of it's surface and here you go - real paper feeling! Sensetivity slightly decreases this way - but it is pretty easy to twick it for yourself with Krita/Tablet settings

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

It really depend the tablet model and built-in overlay.
On my side, I like extra smooth (intuos3 overlay). Especially to (digital)paint.
I just bought a intuos4 overlay to cover my intuos3 ( because intuos3 overlay sheets are out of production) and I can't adapt to the grainy feeling of intuos4 overlay sheet. Too much friction make my hand tired after 3h drawing/painting. I'm used to can paint 20h or more in a row without pain :-D

Maybe try on this folder : http://www.peppercarrot.com/extras/resources/
The bundle are *.bundle files. I think internet explorer has issue with it ( in case you use it ).
In this case, right click on the bundle, and "save as" or "save the target file as" or equivalent (I don't own internet-explorer).
Good luck !

Hi David, thanks so much for these. Quick question for you. Will the v8.1 brush set work with the latest 3.1.1 release of Krita? If not, were you planning another update for these for the new release?

Cheers

Yes, this brush set bundle should load fine in 3.1.1 ; if you meet a problem, let me know ;-)

link Eric   - Reply

Hi David, I just posted a comment that I downloaded the latest version 8.1 and am attempting to import it into Krita v3.1.1 but it's not finding any files after I unzip it. Thank you

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi Eric. I assume you downloaded the source file ( because you said it's a zip ) .
The file you need is a *.bundle file and it's compatible with Krita 3.1.1 ; read again the page, all instruction are written correctly as far as I know.

link Eric   - Reply

Hi David, I read some prior comments (which I should have done before adding mine) and went to the FTP page http://www.peppercarrot.com/extras/resources/; when I save as, it only gives me the option to save as a zip file. I unzipped the file then renamed the folder to deevad-v8-1.bundle, but same thing I click Open then it sees only 3 folders (brushes, META-INF and paintoppresets), none of which contain the file needed to install this bundle pack.

Are you using another web browser (Chrome, Firefox)? Maybe issues with IE 11?

link David Revoy Author, - Reply

Ha, that's sounds like an issue of the browser. Yes, here I'm using last Firefox on Manjaro Linux. I can right click on the bundle and perform a 'save-link-as'. You don't need to extract the zip you have ; just rename it to deevad-v8-1.bundle .

I'll try to improve the download experience for the user of IE on the next brushkit update.

David I figured out a workaround, as a suggestion for anyone else that runs into this issue: click on the download "deevad-v8-1.bundle, save as, change "save as type" from .zip to "all files". Change the defaulted .zip extension to .bundle. WORKED!! :)

Thank you so much for these David! And by the way it seems to be working fine on Krita 3.1.1 although there was one instance when I noticed a small glitch on a few of your brushes. It happened when I gently drew a thin line but upon releasing the stylus, the line instantly becomes slightly thick and a little darker. This was resolved by just restarting Krita but I thought you ought to know.

Hi, I don't know if you know the answer to this. But after installing your brush kit, I now get this short horizontal line right under my brush cursor and I can't make it go away no matter what brush I use. I'm still new to Krita, so any ideas?
Also thank you so much for sharing your brush sets!!!

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi, Thanks :)
I don't think installing a brush-kit can affect the brush-outline. Maybe you use a system with auto-update and a system update changed your graphic driver ? Maybe it was so close in the timeline with installing the preset it suddently was related? Just question :) You can always check by going in Krita ; Settings > Manage resources ; and take the brushkit to the 'Inactive Bundles' to see if the problems disapear and if the problem is linked to my brushes.
Let me know !

link Jennifer   - Reply

I think you may be right! I looked at my recently installed programs, and my graphics driver automatically updated the same night I installed the brush kit. Unfortunately, Windows 10 likes to keep automatically updating when I try to rollback the driver, so I haven't been able to test it to see if that's the reason for sure. But I think it is. When I have more time I'll try to find a way to fix that. Moving your brush kit to "inactive bundles" doesn't solve the problem. Thank you for your advice! :)

A big thanks for your feedback! I hope the latest version (or the next) version of Krita + driver will fix your issue.

not having any luck with the brush bundle installation..
Let us get this straight, is the deevad-v8-1.bundle the only file needed right?
and where is the info on where to save or extract the bundle, where does it need to be...somewhere down the line in the answers I could see some preference user folder, I do not see such folder in the krita program folder, neither in my user folders.

It looks interesting, I managed to download the zip extract the bundle file withing, but I just extracted to desktop and then located the bundle from there and installed through the manager, I can see the deevad 8.1 bundle name when checking the preset list, but there is no brushes in there.

link Michael Ivarsson   - Reply

Never mind, it worked out, I copied it to the krita / share/ krita folder
didn´t show up instantly, had to switch to other presets then back again and suddenly the preset brushes was there

The normal way is to get the *.bundle file on your computer, open Krita, and in the "resources manager" import the file.

How can I use the "Blending" brush, I can not make the transition as it appears in the image, everything is blurred.

link David Revoy Author, - Reply

Blending needs a particular attention to the direction of the stroke and preserving the edges. The stroke must follow your volumes. Here is a quick demo:

The border of this brush could be harder ( increase : Fade > Horyzontal and Vertical ) in the brush editor.

David the Blend brush, should I rub in "zig and zag", or give light strides?

link David Revoy Author, - Reply

Yes, cross hatching gently in a direction and on another angle helps to smooth.
The direction are selected to follow the plane of the surface.
Training with this type of shape ( box ) helps.

Hi!
I have a question, I'm using Krita 3.1.1 and I tried to download this but when I went to download bundle I couldn't find the package in my downloaded files where I put it. I wonder if there is maybe a newer version that I have to update to, and if so, will my old unfinished art work not be able to open in the new version? I don't know if this made any sense, but it would be really nice if you could answer this. Thank you so much! And your art is really beautiful, I appreciate what you do.

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi Carro,

Don't worry: my brushes version 8.2 are compatible with every Krita 3.x versions. They can't broke anything. If your Krita works well for 3.1.1 on your system; just paint with it and do not update to 3.1.2 . The next version 3.1.3 can be more interesting because it will be a sort of Krita 3 final. A big "bug fix release" before Krita jumping to the big change of Krita 4 ( with new text tool, SVG ).
The team of Krita put a lot of efforts into getting compatibility across version for the Krita files format ( *.kra ). Your old unfinished art should be safe! :-)

Great addition to the deevad-v8 brushes, HOWEVER, both in deevad-v8 and in v8-2 your very first "brush" the Eraser Thin does not erase. It works like a brush and puts down paint UNLESS the user hits the E key to turn it into an eraser (just like all other brushes can be turned into erasers).

Thanks.
I loaded an empty configuration vanilla Krita 3.1.2, I added the bundle 8.2 and all works correctly: I can't reproduce.
What version of Krita do you use and on what system ? Also, check if you don't have a local modification of the brush in your paintoppresets local folder. It would override the one in the bundle...

Of course I know Drawpile :) I tested it last month for the release of the appimage version ; that's very cool.
I like the project ; but I never could try it in network. I found the GUI to do the first connection a bit hard to understand. Somehow, I was expecting something like videogames "server list" on start ; just a list of server with amount of user, and a name for the theme. I even don't know if it's possible to make it this way.
Maybe I can chat on a IRC channel ? I guess #drawpile on freenodes ?

Wow! All of these brushes are simply amazing! One question though, the blend tool sometimes decreases the opacity of the stuff I'm using it on... Is that intentional?

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi, Thank you.
If you blend something 100% opacity over an empty area (0% opacity) for sure it will decrease opacity to match the new area and smudge it.
But, if you meet this problem from blending only 100% opaque area and you see 'holes' of opacity ; then it's not an intentional brush setup and sounds like a bug of the Krita engine.
Can you tell me more about it ?

There is two way : first one is to delete the original brushes ( using the trashcan icon in the brush preset docket , the one button in the top toolbar , just next to the brush editor ), the other way is to show only the tag "deevad" of my brush kit ( a drop down list on the top of the brush preset docker ).

Hello, I'm just starting digital painting is there any set of brushes you could describe a "basic" set. Thank you so much!

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi Joseph,
If you begin, just limit yourself to use brush preset you will be able to predict the effect. It doesn't matter if a brush does square, round, textured, splashy effect ; if you are confortable with it and you can predict what will happen with this brush before hitting the canvas, then you'll have a good tool to do progress.

If you are not sure what all of that mean, then use a setup like this with my brush kit:
- "Fill Brush" is a good brush to block flat zone
- "Blending" will smooth your flat zone and build the gradients/modeling.
- "Digital Sketch Rounded" is a good brush to make more advanced modeling and glazing.
- "Rigger" may help to add small details

Ah hello!! These brushes are absolutely beautiful, but I can't figure out how to import them into Krita.

Hi,

Focus on the first part of the install.
- Download the zip file.
- Extract the content of the zip file. ( it will be a bundle file )
... when it's done you can follow the part where you open Krita and point the "Ressource Manager" to use the new ressources.

link Jonathan   - Reply

Hi David. Thank you for sharing your brushes!
And there are so many of them. I'm wondering if you take advantage of the popup palette (right-click on the canvas). Sometimes you may want to quickly access a subset of them, for instance ink brushes at the beginning of a drawing. Do you use that? Or do you only rely on the "brush presets" panel somewhere on the side of the window?
Thanks in advance!

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi!
I like the idea of the pop-up palette ; but here I'm often using the alpha/beta version of Krita to report bugs and test things. Many time, in this version, this part of the software is fragile : it often pop-up with empty presets ; or the preset move around. My memory is very visual ; and I don't like when I add a preset to this wheel , or remove one to see the rotation changing in the slot. It's not consistent and it's hard to develop automatism with it. Also, the color selector in middle is a bit little to my taste. So, all in all, I learned to avoid using this tool. I keep dockers around. I'm really eager to play with python plugins as one in future 4.x to assign presets to keyboard shortcut. I think I'll map all my 1,2,3,4,5...etc... key to that! Right now, yes, I rely on a docker with "brush preset" icon inside it.

link Jonathan   - Reply

Thanks for sharing your point of view!
Regarding the lack of trust and confidence you have in this tool, maybe you can report that to the developers. After all, it's a problem if people can't use a tool they made, whatever the reason.
About mapping presets to digit keys, I believe it would be welcomed by many people, and the developers could consider adding this feature with regular shortcuts, instead of using scripts. I think some people may be afraid of coding... personally I'm waiting for that too :)
Keep up the good work!

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Sure :) I keep around and communicating with dev of Krita since a long time! (2011?) For the pop-up palette, you can use it without any fear if you stick to the stable version ; it's often fragile in *beta-versions* and bug-fix sometime takes time to come in beta ;-) But that's a price to pay to do beta-testing, and with time I often avoid to use the part I consider fragile or prone to break easily.

For the core design of Krita regarding shortcut (for eg. ) ; many discution happens and it slowly evolves ; but it's way more complex than you imagine. Even developers can't do all what they want and its probably a constrain if some feature needs to happens in the layer of "python script". Keep in mind Krita is also tied closely with KDE and Qt , this two offers maintenance of huge part of the code. This position of "sitting on the shoulder of giant" allows the small Krita team to extend on the top, have less maintenance of the code base but the drawback is adopting some standard. But Krita evolves really well, and collaborate more and more to upstream to adapt it to the needs of the team.

Krita only import a brush texture from abr file, you have to recreate the brushes by adding appropriate values in size, spacing etc. to recreate the brushes

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Off topic comment? But yes, ABR is a proprietary binary file created by Adobe. It means if you open this type of file you see plenty of encoded glyph. So, it's already a little miracle a developer of Krita found a way to catch little picture into this mess ( a way to import "brush tips" ). But loading the other parameters is way harder ; the settings are changing and would require a dev to buy a Photoshop license only to compare and play the "guess" and paint long process. It's not worthing it , in my opinion. Artist can recreate the brushes without too much effort. Adobe is known to create messy in-house binary file format with plenty of revisions, etc.

Thank you so much for posting these! I've been trying to find a set with this kind of style for a long time and I absolutely love them! Much appreciated!

the painting brush is the main weapon of an artist and this will give them a huge option to choose their weapon.

Awesome brush set, but it looks like i only have a few of them available. I can only 2 copies of the same brush set in my settings

Thanks can you tell me what version of Krita and what system are you using?

Love the brush set! Thank you so much for creating it! Has anyone else had an issue where the pressure sensitivity doesn't work? Not sure what to do to fix it. I've got a Wacom Intuos Draw, which I know isn't the best.

I also have a Wacom Intuos Draw and my tablet's driver often stop functioning. Check if you have the same problem.

I can't wait to get to work with them and I hope they will be exactly what I need!

Hi there David,

Foremost thank you for this generous download, however, I cannot open on a mac those wonderful bundles which turns into a .zip file and when using the extractor app, it turns back into.bundle file. Was wondering which extractor you can recommend?
Kindly,
Ryon

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi Ryon,
Here I'm using Ark, from Plasma desktop on Linux. I guess it doesn't exist on Mac... You can find on this folder the *.bundle version directly: https://www.peppercarrot.com/extras/?dir=resources , I hope it will help!

link Levi   - Reply

hey um so i did everything but it isnt working, i am trying to figure out what im supposed to do after i extract the files.
(also theres not any bundle files soooo yea)

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi, re-download, extract the *.zip (inside there is a single *.bundle file )
Don't extract the bundle ( if you use Mac or Windows, the extractor sometime on this o.s. are bad qualities and auto assume to extract the content on multi level ; they try to extract the bundle file itself ).
Keep the the bundle on your disk somewhere. Open Krita, go to ressource manager, and load the bundle from this interface.

link Levi   - Reply

so i remove the .bundle file, then extract?
also what is a .gitnore file?

Hey there! I am attempting to download Krita Brushkit v8.2 but every time I click the download link, it just brings me to this page: https://www.davidrevoy.com/categorie12/download

Even when I click the download link under the set on that page, it just reloads the same page.

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi,
I checked here with Firefox and the link to the 'download' works fine.
What system/web-browser are you using?

link Keen   - Reply

I use Chrome, Win10

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

I would be tempted to say Windows and Chrome use you for a joke ;-)
but this system and webbrowser shouldn't be a problem. Maybe an extension.
The download link here is just a link to a common zip. In pure html, so it's an antivirus, a chrome extension, or something else that prevent this link to be open for assisting your security...

Does it work if you click on deevad-v8-2.zip here :
https://www.peppercarrot.com/extras/?dir=resources
?

link Keen   - Reply

It brings me to a directory when I click that, but I've never understood those XD

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Don't be affraid, just click on:
deevad-v8-2.zip
in this directory. (that's a directory on my server where I put the file)

Hello, David. I am new on krita and have installed it now. I was wondering why v 8.2 brush didn't work on KRITA 4.0. You know, i love all of your artworks and motivated a lot to do my own using your brushes, and i expecting this brushes will fixed sooner :))

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi Aditya,
They work (I just tested in Krita 4.1, Linux); nothing really changed. The bundle are still supported.
Exept Krita 4.0 and after have big bugs for the brush tags, and bundle can have glitches.
Boud, the leader of the project, is working since the Krita Sprint 2018 in refactoring all the code behind the resources management for this reason.

By the way, this brushkit comes now by default in the default brushes from Krita 4.0.

Just to clarify the licensing, I get that it's free, but do you require a credit be given, say on my creative Twitch stream, or can I just download and go crazy without thinking about it? Of course I'll gladly give credit, if that's what you require.

Either way, thanks endlessly for these awesome brushes, they've already made my life a lot easier!

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hey KingGrotesk,

You can use the brush as you want, in videos, in tutorials, in livestream, for paid work. What you do with the brushes (all type of artworks) is your property and you can sell, copyright, etc... as you wish. So no need for attribution in a livestream.

The attribution license here applies only for redistribution; eg. if you host the pack on your website and propose it to your audience, or if you sell it on a USB device , etc... and concerns the brush files themselves. This also applies if you modify this brushes and distribute modification of them ( in this case, it is just a credit to know who did the brush). I don't do that for the fame; but more for a sort of genealogy; by the past I put my brush as public domain and many brush creators just repackaged them and sold them taking credits for all the work I did (redoing the brush thumbnail is not a big work xD). I hope you understand!

link KingGrotesk   - Reply

I understand completely, and find the genealogy analogy makes a whole lot of sense. People can be less than honorable, I'm afraid, and first in time is first in line. I appreciate the work you've done on the brushes, and I'll probably give a shout out anyway once I start streaming again.
Thanks!

Hey, i'm trying to load the brushes with krita 4.1 but it just close :(

link David REVOY Author, - Reply

Hi, a brush pack cannot close the program.
Maybe you had another simultaneous issue with another component (wild guess: windows 10 + wacom driver or graphic driver update in background, forced on you).
