Experimental Pencils and much more

Hi all, You know i am a brush lover. So here i will be posting some crazy ideas or finished ones like this. This idea comes from the fact i have a folder with lot of testing and maybe it will be useful for you.

I think we have good pencils but what about this one? more grain and more possibilities as a shader.
h) Charcoal Grainy Sketch

to load it. go to settings/manage resources/ and then import as a preset. That’s all. Now you have fun sketching whatever you want with a grainy look.


The brush is really nice. Thanks! I really like the brushes you make. They remind me of the pencils I use when sketching traditionally :heart_eyes:!


This is an example on how to use it.

Simple example with mirror active. :wink:


Whoa :exploding_head:

I’m currently using this brush for sketches and some of my pieces. It’s really nice and encourages my imagination somehow :blush:.

for example this capture is done with an update for the tilted pencil by default i created for Krita 4. In those days i was thinking also in covering the needs of people with tilt devices. but, hey today i was sketching in the laptop and with wacom bamboo (no tilt) and for that i prefer to have this brush which has also more precission and better soft grainy textured feeling. Is my taste. Maybe you like it, maybe not.
