More than the previous versions of this set, this is the collection of tools, I personally prefer and tweaked to my needs, and not what i considered to be needed in general. That is why it is not something one may call complete and it was never meant as an replacement for the tools that ship with Krita.
One thing i believe in is that higher specialized tools reduce creative processes. On the other hand the spectrum of possible tools in traditional Art creation, is as wide as the imagination can go - endless. Hence that, we must find a balance, giving the best tools to bring imagination to the canvas, without limiting creativity by a dictation of the Tools we use. V4 of my Brushset is the version, that comes closest to this, from my own viewpoint.
Created for and with Krita 2.8
A new version of the Brushset is available for Krita 2.9Modular Brushset v5.0
Never heard about Krita?

Backlinking or Attribution would be nice but isn't needed.
Is there a way that I can modify the .kpp files to make them work?
Thanks again for all your hard work puting these brushes together and sharing them.
I will do a complete rework on the set for 2.9 so that it can be used with the new resource manager, but i am not sure when i can do it - i hope i can get it done shortly after the official 2.9 release.
Yes the icon was there but it had an 'x' in the corner of it.
I found more brushes that wouldn''t work, so redoing the set would probably be the best option.
Is there a turorial that shows step by step how to make the brush presets? I don't have any experience in programing, but I would like to know how it all works.
At the bottom of the page there are some links to brushes. The Informations there are not really up-to-date, but it is a good start.
I have written a short article about krita's brushfiles on my blog: vascobasque.wordpress.com/2013…
And last but not least you can always ask at krita's IRC: krita.org/irc/
Hope this helps
1 - Extract the contents of the downloaded .zip file (krita_modular_brushset_v4_by_grindgod-blabla.zip) -> Rightclick -> Extract All - > Choose a location or just click Next
2 - Open the extracted folder (the name of the folder is the same as the name of the .zip file...)
3 - Open the folder Modular_Brushset_V4
4 - Select the folder named "brushes" and the folder named "paintoppresets" (Select both with Ctrl + LeftClick)
5 - Rightclick on the selected folders -> Choose Copy
The next steps depend on your operating system and your version of krita - i guess it´s windows and krita 2.8
7 - Start krita -> Open the Edit Menu -> Choose the last menu entry called "Resources" -> in the submenu choose "Open Resources Folder"
8 - Your File explorer should open the location where your own custom stuff for krita is stored = your krita "User Directory"
9 - In this folder Rightclick -> Choose Paste -> A window will pop up asking you if you want to integrate the copied folders into the existing ones -> Check the Checkbox at the bottom and choose yes (the checkbox = yes to all files)
This is the most detailed step by step description i can imagine.. but it might vary if your OS is winXP or Vista or a Linux Distro. However the User Directory for Krita is located in your Home folder (../user/your_username).
But it is hidden by default. In your file explorer settings you can change the settings to show hidden folders. You then will see a folder in your Home Directory called "AppData" and in this folder you see "Roaming". This folder is used to store your personal application data like stuff you configured, custom files, temporary data and more. There you should find your krita user directory. I always bookmark this location in my file explorer to easily access these files.
I hope this helps..
To use them:
Copy the X0_NoTilt Folder to the paintopprests folder where the main set is located.
You can use these brushes alongside with the normal set or delete the unneeded Tilt Versions manually:
a) in your file explorer go to the paintoppresets folder and search for the pattern "_T.kpp" - this should sort out all Tilt presets so that you can delete them all at once
b) remove them in krita just as you do it with any other unneeded resource

At the bottom there is a download link to a "No Tilt"-Version: Download and install this and you are good to go. It contains all the same presets just without tilt.
