Krita Watercolor Set v1.01 by GrindGod Krita Watercolor Set v1.01 by GrindGod
Making this Set of Brushes for Digital Painting with the touch of simulated watercolors was a challenge i set for myself. In my eyes watercolors are one of the most difficult disciplines to learn in traditional painting. Making tools that simulate this dynamics is as difficult. I am not very experienced in aquarelle painting, therefor it is hard to say how good this tools do their job. I have done research, compared it with other brushsets (e.g in mypaint and corel painter), scanned images of watercolor, looked at watercolor paintings  from traditional masters - so i can say i have done my homework and did the best i can, to provide you with a nice brushset to create stunning watercolor paintings! Feedback is always welcome.

The basic idea behind the presets is to simulate and control the diffusion of water by pressure with scatter and rotation settings combined with opacity and colorchange-rate. More pressure - more scatter less opacity - this is the basic formula. All brushes are set to a relative low size ~30-100 pixels, but from my testing i can say that all work and look good in a range of 50%-200% of the base. 

The Toolicons i used for this set are taken from David Revoy's Mypaint V6 Brushpack :icondeevad:
I like the icons of his brushset and i think that they fit very well into Krita.


Never heard about Krita? Learn more...


IMPORTANT:
I have made this set primary for Krita 2.8+ There is an important difference in the brush dynamics (scatter setting) between version 2.8 and 2.7. Therefor i made an extra set of adjusted presets for version 2.7 that is included in the zip file. It works and it looks okay... but it is better to use this Set with the version i made it for.


No Attribution required, but if you want to credit me you can link to this set, my profile or my blog vascobasque.wordpress.com
I surely like backlinks =P (Razz) 

I wish you a Merry X-mas and have fun with the new painting tools :)

Notice:

The Krita Watercolor Set is also integrated in the Modular Brushset V4

Changelog:

v1.01 [04.11.14] - removed old 2.7 presets

Yes, should work. These brushes are also included in the Modular Brushset V5 in form of a resource-bundle. They can be installed  separately without all the other stuff from the whole set.

Thanks for your awesome brushes! For the next person to install them, I'd just like to say, Copy them into the folder, don't use the import resource button that Krita provides...

1. In Krita open the Edit Menu - at the bottom should be an entry - Resources   > Open Resources Folder
2. Unzip the downloaded file and copy the brushes and the paintoppresets folders to that location.

OK, don't misunderstand me, but I think I've just fallen in love with you. ^^; Spaß beiseite. This set is the best I've come across since the watercolor stuff of Corel Painter - and much easier to use (CP is such a hassle, and unstable, bleh). As you might see from my icon 99% of what I do is in done in watercolors, so while I'm not the expert of experts, I can tell you your set comes close enough for me to actually give digital painting a real try (like, for real :3 ). So. Thank you!!! orz

Ha, you made my day! :D

The translation of traditional media into digital painting applications has been an important aspect of my work. I think this set is actually the best result i have reached so far. But it also has to be said that krita's brushengine has improved greatly making this possible. If someone asks me, what i think is the best painting applictation to simulate traditional painting, then i can honestly say itīs krita. In this special branch it has taken over a leading position. Even Artrage or Mypaint, what where my favorite applications a while ago donīt beat the versatility and professional approach of krita. And corel... has been always to unstable and too slow for me.

But i digress^^ Thank you very much for this nice feedback - it means a lot to me :)

Default Path to the Krita User Folder:

C:\Users/"YourUserName"/AppData/.kde/share/apps/krita

copy the brushes folder and the paintoppresets folder (of the version you use) into this directory

Yeah i understand. Maybe a lot of things come together like workflow, preferred techniques, own style and so on. 
In case you use krita 2.7, i can say that you will see big improvements in version 2.8, that is on the road to the release :)
