Looking for a Good Basic Brush

Hi!
Here is the brush I use in Photoshop (to be precise in the picture it's some declinations of the same brush).

It's very simple but good looking and I use it everytime for everything!!

- All the brushes I tried on Krita (integrated or downloaded brushes) are either big textured brushes or thin brushes without good texture. None of them gives this result

- I tried to create my own brush but I failed to get a decent result.

- Photoshop Abr import doesn't work so I can't import my Photoshop brush.

Do someone has a solution ? :|

Hi feydk,

If the above brush is default photoshop brush, May I know the name of that brush preset.
I will try to get a brush closer to it in my free time.

Actually you can make it too!! You can bring the brush tip i.e. the texture of the brush from Photoshop to Krita
Just stamp a single click of your brush with black color in Photoshop and save the texture as png ( I hope your brush is big enough)
then in krita choose a basic brush in brush editor and import the texture (.png) into the predefined tip section.

Now select this tip and play with the flow, scatter, rotation settings given on the left. you can adjust the pressure curve accordingly ( this gives more precise control)

take a look at a screen shot here : http://i.imgur.com/ke79fu0.jpg?1

This is how I recreated all my brushes from Photoshop to Krita and all of them work good.

I hope this helped you. :)

thank you

Hm... try this one: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4howzu6w6j8v7 ... k.kpp?dl=0

Few caveats:
1. I don't have an tilt-enabled tablet. So you'll have to set those sensors yourself.
2. Krita can only import photoshop abr brush masks. Maybe that brush mask was imported into Krita, so you can replace the generic square with that.
3. It works best on 2.9 beta. Primarily, the texture has random-offset on, and if you are in 2.9 beta, I'd also recommend setting the spacing to 'auto'. The latter speeds up the brush big time.

I hope this helps!
