Gimp Brushes by Viraqupis Gimp Brushes by Viraqupis
UPDATE
Check out my new Gimp brushes here: [link]

PHOTOSHOP USERS
The archive now has both .gbr and .png files in it. The .png files are for Photoshop users so they can possibly save down the brushes on their own. I don't have the software to create .abr files.

HOW TO INSTALL

TUTORIAL ON HOW TO CUSTOMIZE GIMP'S INTERFACE: [link]

Best used with this [link] Gimp version, which I truly recommend. It has everything I used to miss in Gimp, such as smooth pressure sensitivity on brushes and colour blending.

EDIT 8 Dec 2009: The newest Gimp version makes these brushes work just as well without the Gimp Painter features. Gimp has come a long way in a short time!

Most of these brushes are made out of thin air, but I've had uses for them :D

1. The crescent shaped brush is my favourite. It leaves a hollow line, which can be made to look like a snake in just one stroke, but I haven't painted any snakes yet :D

I use it for almost everything, but mostly sketching, smudging highlights on hair and it's nice for skin painting as well when used with the blending brush.

2. A normal 50px round brush, with the spacing set to 1 so you don't end up with those ugly, visible circles that the original brushes do. It may lag a bit.

3. I don't use this brush very often. As you can see in the preview, it can do many things. The blob to the top looks somewhat like leaves and could be used for trees/bushes. Below I have made three strokes side by side and it almost looks like some sort of chainmail.

4. Another texture-ish brush. I've used it for cloth before.

5. A lovely soft brush that I use when I want a more delicate round brush.

6. A wispy sort of brush. Quite nice to use as eraser to fade away objects.

7. My favourite sketching brush number one. Much the same like a normal round brush, but with smoother edges.

Yeah I did. They weren't very thought through either :P The most important part in making gimp brushes is getting the settings right, not what shapes you make.

The thing is I went by all the settings correctly and it came out more dotty that as an actual brush. I've done it at least 5 times and its come out the same way each time

In that case you just need to tweak the brush settings in the brushes tab as you draw. There is a slider for how much spacing you want between each dot and if you put it near 0 it will look like continuous strokes.

How do you make it have a tipped end? I never could do that.

I don't know what you mean exactly. It's just pressure sensitivity. I think it was enhanced in the Gimp Painter software that I used for the demo pic back in the day though. The info about it should be in the artist comment.

In GIMP you can pick 'fade tapering' in brush dynamics and set the desired fade length to get the tipped end if you don't own a tablet. :) Brush dynamics option will also give you the possibility to have the opacity decreased by the length of your strokes. I work with a mouse and don't have a tablet, this really works for me.
