Inking brushes 1.2 and Miscellaneous brushes 1.0 for Krita 2.8 as well as the Candy pallete under the cut.
Inking Brush Pack
As noted before on the Krita forums, one of the first things I look for in a image editing program is nice inking brushes. Krita’s defaults were too aliased for me, so I attempted to make better anti-aliased brushes, which invite to expression.
The brushes are based on realworld inking equipment, such as brushes, nibs, steel nibs and fineliners.
The package contains:
- A pressure sensitive pixelbrush, fine tuned to have sharp anti-aliasing on 100% view.
- Similar to the brush, however, this brush requires more pressure to get full size out of.
- Exactly the same as inking_dynamic_pen, but smaller in radius.
- Similar to previous brushes, but thougher and smaller than the inking_dynamic_pen, resulting in a more even line.
- Pressure and speed sensitive pixel-brush with finetuned antialiasing. Each a slightly different radius.
- A tiny-radius bursh with good anti-aliasing.
- A colour smudge brush with pressure sensitivity for opacity and size.
Creates more gentle lines than the rest of the pack, good for digital painting.
The newest version of this pack sees updated icons to fit the new icon-standards.
Miscellaneous Brush Pack
Now the second pack, the miscellaneous brushes, are all brushes for painting, but don’t have a specific focus like the inking brushes.
The package contains:
- A dulling smudge brush with jitter. Ideal for quickly smudging colours together, and when putting little pressure will make very smooth gradients.
- A round, pressure sensitive dulling colour smudge brush. A very good all-round painting brush.
- Similar to above, but with a wider tip. Good for covering large areas.
- wash_alchoholmarker_dark, wash_alchoholmarker_mid, wash_alchoholmarker_light, wash_alchoholmarker_wide.
- Brushes indended to mimick real-life alchohol markers. They all blend with multiply, resulting in very ink-like colours. Good for mimicking ink-washes.
The Candy Palette
Finally, the candy palette: A .gpl palette made up of 6 skin tone ramps, 5 hair colour ramps and 5 eye-colour ramps. and then a couple of generic colour ramps.
The initial idea was to create a palette created around a traditional colour-picking method: Hue-shifting toward blue while shifting to darker colours. The palette’s saturated colours make it almost candy-like, and is ideal for warm candy-like pictures, but also for semi-transparent and wash brushes where the saturation dims a lot.

I hope these will be useful 🙂
EDIT: The brush packs have been updated to 1.3 and 1.1 respectively, with modifications as done by David Revoy.
