ArtGirl, thanks so much for posting this. I saw your link to this in another thread and immediately installed these brushes, plus a couple of other large packs of brushes that looked interesting. These are incredibly useful for me, I've been playing with them ever since downloading them, and I'm really impressed with what they'll do. I've been firing up Photoshop in Windows to do some things but now with the new brush sets that won't be necessary. Krita works beautifully in Linux, great program.
Thanks again!

Hi stereo55. I'm very glad you like the brushes packs so much (is RZV's one of the other packs you've found? https://razvanc-r.gitlab.io/posts/2017/ ... -brushkit/). :D Amazing brush pack that really adds so much to Krita. That's great that you like working with Krita/Linux. I can't stop doodling trees and lakes and sunsets etc either, lol. Happy painting!

An old girlfriend of mine has been talking about doing some artwork on her computer forever. I should get the two of you together and you could probably give her some pointers on what programs to use ans so on. The last time she and I talked we talked about putting Linux on her computer and the associated art programs, but we just haven't gotten around to it yet. Maybe I'll call her tomorrow.

I'm sure she'd like Krita and particularly the two brush packs referenced here. There's Ramon's 'muses' brushes built in to Krita too, which are lovely. Other than that, Radian does a brush set. They're the main 4 I use.

On Linux there's only MyPaint and Krita that are more geared towards painting, although I've seen some nice artworks done with Gimp now and then. I'd not recommend she tries Gimp though, and MyPaint includes having to do any move/resize outside (eg in Pinta). In Krita you can do everything you need to; I keep it organised purely for painting, but it can be used for animation or ps-style editing etc too. It can seem very complicated, but can be pared down to just enjoying the brushes and simple editing. I have no issues with lag using an i7/16 ram, but there may be some issues with other specs. If her pc has issues with lag, MyPaint could be an alternative to just splosh whatever and enjoy that.

A good place for her to start exploring is just to play with the brushes ... saving brush sizes and tagging her own personal favourites would be best while doing so [see image], as there are a lot of brushes. Other than that, there's a few settings, simple move/resize, import a couple of brush bundles, and the other features can stay in the background until whenever. If she really takes to it, I can provide the simplest of instructions for basic settings and move/resize, which is all that's needed for purely painting, and there's the forum for anything else.

(any unrecognisable brushes are where I've used the scratchpad to the right in the 'save tweaks' section, to overwrite and save a new icon)
