PixelAlley brings you a new collection of Painter 6, Painter 7, and Painter 8 Custom Brushes as a sister collection to the Painter 7 Custom Water Color Brushes. We started off with a bang! Chris Cimonetti of Fine Art Brushes fame has kindly agreed to let me host his newest Fine Art 2 collection here. David Gell, who's famous for hosting and sharing Painter 6, 7, and 8 brushes (Painter 6 for both PC and Mac) other Painter resources, and answers to impossible questions, has allowed me to post a link to his Sandman's Site along with an abbreviated list of what's there. Yesterday and today, April 26, 2004, I've added two of my custom brushes that I hope you'll enjoy. Other brushes will be added as I find time and as other artists contribute. If you'd like to participate by contributing to this central location where Painter 6, Painter 7, and Painter 8 users can share and download custom brushes, take a look at the format set up below. When you have all of the ingredients together, and files uploaded to your site, write to me and let me know. I'll add them to this page along with your name (if you choose) and a link to any other Painter brush work on your site.

Version: Painter 7 through Painter X.1
Brush: Several Variants
Paper: Default Library, Basic Paper, Default Settings
Sample done on a 400 x 300 pixel Canvas at 300 ppi, saved as Excellent JPG in Painter 7, then compressed in Fireworks from 107 kb down to 40 kb.
Chris says this Library includes even more brush variants than the original Fine Art Library!
The little sample I did doesn't begin to do these brushes justice. Try them and you'll see.
See instructions below for extracting the fa2.zip file and locating fa2 brush library folder and files correctly:
|Instructions for installing the fa2 brush
library in Painter 7 through Painter X.1:
Since some new Painter users have trouble figuring out where brush libraries need to be located in order load and work in Painter 7, Painter 8, Painter IX (IX 9.1 and IX.5, and Painter X (and X.1), the demo image below shows you where Chris's Fine Art 2 brush library should be located for Painter 7. The location will be similar for following Painter versions, but not always exactly the same depending on your Painter version. Below the demo image, I'll also show you where to place the fa2 brush library folder in Painter 8, Painter IX (IX 9.1 and IX.5) and in Painter X (and X.1). You can refer to the demo image to see what the fa2 brush library contains.
Painter 7 (and 7.1): Move the brush library folder, fa2, into Painter 7 > Brushes folder as shown in the demo image below.
Painter 8: Move the brush library folder, fa2, into the Corel > Corel Painter 8 > Brushes folder.
Painter IX (IX 9.1 and IX.5): Move the brush library folder, fa2, into the following folder for either Mac or Windows:
Mac - Applications > Corel Painter IX > Brushes
Windows - Program Files > Corel > Corel Painter IX > Brushes
Painter X (and X.1): Move the brush library folder, fa2, into the following folder for either Mac or Windows:
Mac - Applications > Corel Painter X > Brushes
Windows - Program Files > Corel > Corel Painter X > Brushes
