Hi everyone!

 

I wanted to give a peak at the new oil brushes I have been tinkering with. They're designed to give the subtle variations within a stroke that is characteristic of oil paint. When I figured out how to get the effect I wanted I got really excited and made a TON of brushes. I am having a lot of fun with them, and I think you're going to enjoy them immensely.  :D

 

Along with the Oil brushes, I am finishing up: Acrylic, Copic, and Ink brushes as well as a few updates to the drawing and watercolor sets. It's going to be close to 100 new brushes. They'll all be in a free update to those who purchased the Box Set.

 

awesome, especially since I just got my box set. btw, what's the "License Key" mentioned in the order details for?

 

but these are really intresting.

Thanks for your support by buying the set! You're about to get so many new brushes in a free update in the new few weeks, it's going to blow your mind! :D

 

The License key is assigned to owners of the box set ( and any other product). it helps me (and gumroad) keep track of who purchased what and when. The key is really just a way to authenticate the download from Gumroad and proof you own it.

oh, nice to know. also nice to know that the update is coming in a few weeks (instead of god knows when).

also 9$ is a pretty good price for the box so I kinda just got it for the sake of it.

Hey! They're pretty much done, just triple/quadruple checking everything. I had to make a new version of every brush for iPad (so they felt/responded nicely), and it takes a while to make adjustments because you can't make changes/export the brushes in the app.

 

So when all the dust settles there's going to be around 400+ New Brushes including the iOS versions. Still completely free to Box Set owners.

 

Here is an extremely SMALL sample of SOME of the new brushes. my goal is to release this weekend! Cheers!

awesome, but lol, "favorite accident"

 

by the way what is Gouache?

Gouache is similar to watercolor because it can be re-wet and the paint can become infused with its paper support. It can also form a superficial layer like acrylic or oil paint. Also like watercolor, gouache dries to a matte finish. It is similar to acrylic or oil paints in that it is normally used in an opaque painting style.

certainly intresting to try this  stuff out when it comes.

Real Gouache is very good to work with.  It should be interesting to see how the digital version compares.

Hey everyone!

 

All of the new brushes are now uploaded and ready! I am working on a longer post detailing the new brushes as well as a few changes, but I wanted to get them in your hands before then.

 

To access the brushes, just go to your gumroad library and download "The Box Set 2017."

 

The Drawing and Painting Sets were also updated as well as the Sample Set.

 

Let me know if you have any trouble.

 

Enjoy!

no trouble but something I noticed is that the zip file contains some .DS_Store files, dunny what junk this is but maybe your packer screwed up.

also in the raster and ios folders, the filenames are weird.

Thanks for the heads up. the .DS_Store file is created by MacOS. It has superficial data about how the files are presented in the OS. Nothing out of the ordinary or in error.

 

The file names are weird because they have unicode glyphs in them that are still not compressing correctly.

Okay, but does mac really need to litter these around inside the zip files?

 

And what unicode do we need in the main filenames? They look pretty descriptive to me...

emoji in file names for the brushes, lol?

 

but just curious, is there something specific to the ios brushes so they need to be extra?

Yeah emoji in the file name! They stand out in the list window and I find to be helpful.

 

Yes the iOS versions are calibrated to be used with the Apple Pencil, which has a different tip sensitivity

intresting to know.

 

but on PC arent all pens calibrated differently? is it even possible to make something proper for that?

 

(as I mouse user I dont care too much about the pen stuff but it's kinda intresting to know)

I (still) don't have a Gumroad library, Jef. Could you send me a link, please?

I don't have a Gumroad account, because I've never needed one! I don't sell anything there, and for any purchases I've made I've simply clicked a link on the web page, or in the confirmation email, and obtained my download that way.

oh I see. I made one, because I probably didnt notice you dont need an account for buying stuff (I mean for buying at amazon or whatever you also need an account so it feels normal.

 

but did you at least keep your order email alfred?

 

because if you dont even make an account you should at least take care of those.

 

I have pretty much every email from any kind of registration, purchase, software code whatever in my mailbox but well with 19GB of storage, why should I even delete stuff, unless it's spam?

I do keep my order emails, but that doesn't help if the update mechanism relies on an account that I don't have! ;)
