Hair Brush Set for GIMP by jesuslover488448 Hair Brush Set for GIMP by jesuslover488448
A set of 5 custom hair brushes for GIMP (Using GIMP 2.6)

Work quite nicely when combined with one or more of the set.

Use of pressure sensitive graphics tablet required for full effect.

Hand-Made using :iconpara-vine: brush set as reference, and posted with permission.

Original Photoshop version here.

Please fave if used.

And last but not least, Have Fun!

Instructions: Open each individual file with GIMP (after GIMP start-up), and then go to edit>copy, and then edit>paste as>new Brush. Name the brush and set the spacing at zero. After this is done your new brushes should be displayed in the brush menu. Hope this helps!

Edit When I asked :iconpara-vine: if I could re-create these brushes for GIMP, I was in no way expecting this kind of feedback (650+ faves and 9,000+ pageviews in 24 hours). I want to thank you all for the favorites. All I can say is wow, thanks guys! I'm so glad I could help. :)

They look great, but the colors don't change? Black and white work, but if I pick a different color, it's only gray. 
Doesn't seem to work in terms of color. It's only black/white. Is there something I'm missing, or is there a way to make them able to have color, and I don't know it?
To those who can't open it in Gimp 2.8;

Open Gimp and go file -> open, and then find the folder and click on the first one and it should be opened in Gimp and then just follow the instructions which is given above :)
I'm using Gimp 2.8 and they work perfectly :D thanks!
