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 !

It's also my first youtube video... time for premieres !


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.


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

As Krita tagging system is sometimes capricious, every brush preset start with "Nylnook" to quickly find them. Then they are sorted by types :

Small Icons

Nylnook rotation icon 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.

Nylnook mix icon 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 ;)


Compatible with Krita 2.9, and next point releases at least ;)
