FireAlpaca Brushes by David-c2011 FireAlpaca Brushes by David-c2011
A collection of 30 brushes for FireAlpaca. I did NOT create these, I simply exported them to the .PNG format and configured the parameters. Also 2 pencil presets that may be useful for sketching. All brushes are aptly named.

The screenshot demonstrates them in action (pressure sensitivity not used).

You need to have the program installed first. This is not included here, and must be downloaded seperately from it's website. If you already have saved brushes of your own - be prepared to have them overwritten. This will NOT however, overide the default brushes like blur or watercolour.

Unfortunately, FireAlpaca doesn't save the brushes config files into the programs direct folder, but instead into your local settings folder. Therefore you need to manually copy the zipped "FireAlpaca" folder to your OS's appropriate directory.

You should be able to locate this folder from the programs "help" menu. These folders may be hidden, so you may need to right click in your file browser to "show all / show hidden".

If for some reason this doesn't work, see below:

For Windows XP the directory for the unzipped folder to be copied to should be:

C:-Documents and Settings-YOUR_USER_ACCOUNT-Local Settings-Application Data-Local

For Vista and Windows 7, the folder is:


These are the directories where a "FireAlpaca" folder should already exist, so check it first. In it should be 3 ".ini" files - these are your setting files for the saved brushes, and are the ones that need to be overwritten. Any messages about overwriting files must be answered with yes.

If you use a MAC then I'm afraid I don't know where the folder should be copied to. If it has a file search tool then search for "brush.ini" and the directory should be found.

It's all a bit akward, but the only way to do it right now.

* Tip - when using them make sure "anti-aliasing" is turned off. I've noticed it causes massive slowdown when turned on, and anti-aliasing doesn't seem to work anyway.

* This requires the latest version of FireAlpaca to work. It will not work with older versions that do not support the new BITMAP brushes.

I actually have a question about this program FireAlpaca I just downloaded.
I used Paint Tool Sai for 4 years now, and I tried the basic brushes and I was wondering if you know if there's a way to fix it.
If I put the brush on like... 60%, yknow it doesn't give the 100% colour Ive chosen. In Sai you can see through for that remaining 40%.
In this program however... if I don't have it on 100% and stroke a view time... the areas that overlay with each other become darker.
But what if I really want that see through?
I hope you don't mind me asking this question....

You can make the layers different percentages, otherwise I don't know

When you download the .zip file "Extract" the brush_bitmap folder to this sequence:
C:/Users/your username/AppData/Local/FireAlpaca/FireAlpaca/brush_bitmap
And to use/set/customize a brush, go to the bottom of your brush panel and look for a button that looks like a piece of paper that has 4 tiny boxes on it.
Sorry if Im too late to help Sweating a little...
