The Gimp BrushBox v2.1 by GrindGod The Gimp BrushBox v2.1 by GrindGod
Wow... making this Set has taken more time than i expected! It's the most complete and biggest work on Brushes i made until now.

Okay - more about this Set... As usual when i create Brushes i set the Focus on Digital Painttools (Simulating Real brushes/pencils) and Texturing with "premade" Effects and special brushes like Grass/Clouds/Foliage and so on. But for nearly every Brush, i had on my mind, that it is usable in a lot of different ways and that it is not to specific.
Every Brush in the Set is fine adjusted so that you could start painting without worrying about dynamics or Brush Settings too much.

So here is what you get:

- all brushes organized by usage
- 162 different Brush Tips
- 70 Dynamics
- 251 Presets


- The Brushes are made for the use with a pressure sensitiv device (Graphic Tablet). You can use them with a mouse - but with a tablet its more fun^^
- The Brushes are made with Gimp 2.8.4; All Presets/BrushTips and Dynamics are made by me. There is nothing modified or copied from other Sets in it!
- The content is free to use commercial and non-commercial.

Installation Instructions:

Windows
LINUX

Hey gothicAge,

i really enjoyed, reading your comment! Making this set was a big quest or journey..  i have spent a lot time on it -  from observing traditional media up to reviewing and comparing other brushsets, that i have used before (like Gimp Paint Studio).

A while ago i switched  to  Krita, what has become my primary application for digital Painting. Gimp is still my choice for post-processing or purely design-related stuff, but i use only a very small set of tools for that, not comparable with this big brushset... Btw if you haven´t tried out Krita yet, i would highly recommend to do it. It´s freely available for linux and windows. Just checkout the link :)

As you have written, there are some brushes and presets that need an overhaul and i have planned to do an update, but it's on a long to-do list. Good to know that the most stuff works as intended.

Digital painting offers exciting and fascinating possibilities of expression. (beyond the stuff, that is done for the cg-industry..) I have thought a lot about the question of emulating traditional media vs. finding 'new' digital styles that stand for their own. I think It's an ongoing process, and i am curious to where it will lead. But i am sure that we have to start, from where we are coming: we must try to simulate traditional media to develop and transform them to something new!

Im always on the outlook for nice plugins, they are soo helpful, inspiring, I love that.

Krita? uff…im a mac user, pity. But Gimp improved alot, and im very excited about the next big update, which comes out probably this fall.

oh…dont worry. This little tweaks are easily to solve, i wrote it only as info. Wasnt my intention to complain anything. 

yes, absolutely. Digital tools offer new possibilities and we have to discover them. Traditional media are always a good reference, however.

I only recently decided that I could not longer deal with the measly options of "basic paintbrush" and the freaking ridiculous "pepper" paintbrush on gimp… thank you for making this and really this goes out to anyone who makes these brushes… We appreciate your work immensely. :)

thanks for the help and sharing the brushes .interesting . please could you add a tutorial with gimpies so we get an idea of how you created your texture brushes .not so much as the mechanics but the shapes and designs would be interesting for future knowledge .I know this is not the only thing you do in life so will be patient if your willing thankyou

I have used a software that is specialized on creating seamless textures. Link: www.spiralgraphics.biz/genetic…
The use of this software has to be learned for its own, but it is not very difficult. Finding the shapes and designs that could be interesting for brushes is more a question of experience and trial. The 30 Textures from my organic texture set are chosen from about 100 i have rendered before. It is more an ongoing process that is hard to be reduced into a tutorial. Just experiment with shapes and forms and let yourself be surprised :)

This... this is just amazing! There's so much to this that I don't even know where to begin talking about this set. Like, I haven't tried all the brushes, presets, etc... because there is just so much to try, but everything I did try works so well. So I guess I'll just summarize my thoughts by repeating myself: This is just amazing! Ha ha!

One thing that I noticed though is that there is almost too much. Like, it takes quite a while to scroll down through long lists of presets as it gives you a lot to sift through and as a result can be a tad confusing to navigate, especially when going quickly. But that's a tradeoff for full-featured functionality I suppose. Plus people can customize how much or how little they want out of this anyway.

I am glad you liked the Set and it's good to hear that all works as intended. If you keep the files in the directory structure you should be able to sort the set by tags generated from the folder names. I have tried to keep the categories as small that it is not required to scroll. (surely depends on the UI settings and monitor size/resolution)

I thought of releasing a smaller compilation which is more focused on the essentials. My own selection is also much smaller and after i read your comment i think i will do that in the next days. Thank you for your comment - it's nice that you take the time to give a detailed feedback - helps a lot to make the things better :)

Yeah, I did keep them that way and did sort them. I still had to scroll quite a bit (only 1/3 showed at a time) though for larger sets like the "texture" one. Though as you said, it likely has to do with monitor resolution as well. I'm using a 1600x900 screen which I bet is smaller than yours. Though at the time I forgot to change the preview size to "tiny" for the tool presets dialog box (It was on medium by default) which really helped in getting most of them in the larger categories (meaning about 3/4) on the screen.

You're welcome!

Is There Any Brush Limit In Gimp? Ive Downloaded Like 800 For My 2nd Day In Gimp ._.

Not really, but depending on the size of the files you might reach a situation where it might take an exessive amount of time to load the Brushes. From the technical site i would give the advise not to install more than 100-200 mb of brushes and not more than 200-500 mb of ressources at all. Surely depends on your hardware, too. The more you have installed the longer it takes to load.

And sometimes less is more! Especially if you are new to gimp :)
