Krita Brushes Presets Pack v1

EDIT : I have now updated the pack to version 2 !

Krita icon

After several months of shyness, I’m happy to introduce 25 brushes presets for digital painting I crafted for and with Krita 2.9 , used for my comics… This is version 1 !

They are free to use, under a Creative Commons Zero License !

Presentation Video

It’s also my first youtube video… time for premieres !

Installation

Download the bundle, In Krita, go to Settings > Manage Resources… > Import Bundle/Resource, and make sure the bundle is in the Active Bundles column on the left.

Usage

I usually use them on a large canvas (minimum 2K)… so theses presets may look big on a smaller canvas.

Naming

As Krita tagging system is sometimes capricious, every brush preset start with “Nylnook” to quickly find them. Then they are sorted by types :
Airbrush is a textured airbrush for shading, it’s more interesting with a texture 😉
Basic Brushes are the simplest, and the less demanding for your computer. Slightly noising to allow soft mixing between colors.
Block allow to do large blocking of colors in speed painting for example. Noise and not texture to make it quicker.
Erase : One really hard (just erase that mistake now in one stoke) and one soft for shadings.
Fill or Erase Shape: for quick filling, or quick erasing of large areas with the “E” shortcut.
Ink: the most of the brushes are here, because I searched a lot to create an interesting ink brush for my comics. Some experiments here, but everything is usable. The best in my opinion are the two “power” ones, but are hard to use : I recommend the Dynamic Brush tool (N) to draw with it.
Paint: Four brushes with rotation and mixing for “real” painting or watercoloring
Pencil: a simple pencil for sketches, really similar to default Pencil 2B
Poska: Small markers brushes inspired by the famous Poscas

Small Icons


Brushes with a rotation icon are meant to be used with a stylus supporting rotation like the Wacom Art Pen (the best stylus I know if you want my opinion). This allow to do thick and thin strokes, essentials for inking.
Theses brushes can be used with a stylus not supporting rotation, but are less interesting in this case.


Brushes with a drop icon mix there colors with the color already on the canvas… so they feel “wet”.

Brushes with mixing and rotation use more computing power than other brushes, especially when they are combined with textures. Should work on any recent computer nevertheless 😉

Compatibility

Compatible with Krita 2.9, and next point releases at least 😉
