Basic Brush Set v3.0 by GrindGod Basic Brush Set v3.0 by GrindGod
This Basic Brush Set includes 76 different Brushes. There were 3 Aspects i had on my mind when i created the Bruhes: Concept Design, Simulating Real Paint Dynamics, Effect-Presets for a faster workflow.
The Set is optimized for Graphic Tablets. Without a pressure sensitive device you will not get the full Effect! The Brush Tips used were made from scanned Strokes with different Pencils, Markers, Charcoal etc.

- made with CS2
- Basic Pencils, Sketching Brushes
- Inking Brushes
- Wet- and Dry Markers for Concept Design/Coloring
- Effect-Brushes: Foliage, Clouds, Smoke, Grass, Fur, Fibers/Hair and much more
- Smudge Brushes
- A wide Range of Brushes for textures

If you use or like this work it would be nice if you let me know about.

Are they for Photoshop? GIMP? Or can you use them on anything?
GrindGod Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013   Digital Artist
This Set is made for Photoshop and the files are packaged into the Adobe Brush File format .abr. The files contain the brushimages + brushsettings. Gimp can load abr files, but only the images and not the settings that made the strokes look like shown above. With specialized software it is also possible to extract the Brushimages out of the abr file (e.g. with abrMate - to use these images with other painting applications.

Different Painting Applications have different Brushengines that apply the behavior via specific settings to any kind of brushtip or brushimage. The brushimages could be used by different programs as they are mostly just jpeg or png files, but the specific settings are unique to the Brushengine they are made for.
