KFCemployee's favorite brushes by KFCemployee KFCemployee's favorite brushes by KFCemployee

Thought I'd update my current set of brushes :D These are the ones i've been using in almost every painting recently! Mostly the fancypants.

You can download the brush set by clicking 'download' on the right side of the page

Hard round: Used for painting in details on the background or sometimes the main subject. Good for trees/leaves and facial fur

Fancypants:Astounding for fur painting (especially for shorter fur). Also good for blocking in shapes in the background (mountains, clouds, hills, trees, etc) and speedpaints

Hybrid:A tricky brush to use. I've got a love-hate relationship with it but I love it when painting longer fur or grass. Sometimes it's a nice palette brush for speedpainting.

Forest:My favorite tree brush for speedpaints. Excellent at forests in the distance or trees on a mountain

Fancy Tree:A custom made brush that's a great base to add details onto. By itself it's rather flat and boring. Very detailed, so when adding trees that are farther away, remember to blur them a bit.

Grass Clump:Another custom made brush that's fantastic for painting areas or clumps of grass/moss/foliage. Even better when you add color dynamics to it.

Sandstone:I don't use this brush too much anymore, but it's good for painting snow, sand, rocks, or mountainsides. It has a rough, dirt-like appearance that's somewhat hard to use appropriately. 

You can see my brushes in use in videos on my youtube channel, where I often post speedpaints and tutorials.…

Most brushes are used with a flow below 100%. Generally I paint with flow around or below %50, and I set 'angle jitter' to pen tilt. 

Other brushes and work I've done recently:
