After a long long time using my brushes in Krita, I wanted to edit a new smaller version of my collection, focusing only on those brushes who actually I use, and leaving aside those who have rarely integrated into my workflow.
What brushes really use?
In general painters and illustrators, and particularly digital 2D artists, usually use a minimum number of tools to work (despite having hundreds of resources). In my case, I use assiduously no more than 3 or 4 brushes almost all the time, and only use other brushes just for final details , textures, etc.
In a very rough way (in spanish language we use the term “ojímetro”, something like “via eye meter”) I would say these are the percentage of use time for each brush in Krita:
So based on this precept, I decided to create this new “reduced” version of the brushes that are a fundamental part of my work.
Previous version, more complete
Of course, if you need a more complete version of this collection, please look the Cazu Brush Collection v2 for Krita.
– New classification
The brushes are now grouped according to usage into 5 types: Draw, Paint, Blender, FX and Texture.
– Without “Erasers”
This is not new in this collection, but it’s worth noting that all brushes are potential Erasers in Krita, by pressing
– New “Flat” icons
The icons have been simplified for better readability. All credits for The Noun Project.
