Bri's Manga Studio 5 Essentials by BriMercedes Bri's Manga Studio 5 Essentials by BriMercedes
This is about every brush I regularly use in Manga Studio 5. They were created using both default and custom-made brush tips.

I use this program because it's snappier than Photoshop and the brush engine has just as many customization options, if not more, than Photoshop's. It's a little easier to replicate traditional media in and has a brush stroke smoothing feature that's better than SAI's.

Use and alter to your liking! No credit is needed but link-backs are always appreciated.

There is a bug with your brush set. Whenever I attempt to import the brushes, Manga Studio 5 crashes. I know that this is a bug with your brushes only because I have imported many other brushes flawlessly.

As a fix, may I suggest exporting them again and replacing the ZIP download?

Thanks you for this pack, looks pretty good, I would like to ask you something, you said that manga studio 5 has as many customization options than photoshop if not more but I dont undestand how to modify thing like the pressure control the size of the stroke or the pressure controls the opacity of the stroke like I usually do in photoshop ^^, G pen strokes are wider or narrower depending on the pen pressure but I cant adjust whats the minimun size of the stroke or things like that, can you tell me if you figure out how to get something like that? ^^

Thank you for creating this. I would love to try out the brushes but whenever I hit the download button, nothing happens :( I tried downloading someone else's brush set to see if it was just my computer but their's downloaded just fine. Do you know of any other way I could acquire them? They look awesome!

I very much like your "line art pencil."

But do you have any tutorials on how you specifically use them? I can see potential in the pastel brushes especially, but I'd like to know what sort of process you recommend.

I don't have any tutorials on how to use these specific brushes, but here are some pieces I created exclusively with this set that you can look at:

To be honest, I don't have a process, I just do stuff that I think works in the moment. But if it helps, my layer structure is usually something like this (bottom to top): flat colors, texture applied over the flat colors with a brush, overlay/multiply shading and highlights, fine details, and finally a texture overlay.

Are these brushes free for commercial use? Might as well ask before I go using them on something I shouldn't xD

yup, they are my gift to fellow Manga Studio users! Free for commercial use, tinkering with, etc... all I ask is that you don't redistribute or sell them. Thank you for asking!

If you're talking about uploading custom brushes, you will need to compress them into a .zip file before uploading. These might help you:

FAQ #816: How do I upload a collection of images or files, such as brushes, wallpapers or other?
FAQ #39: I just tried to submit a file to X Category, but it told me the filetype I am trying to upload is not allowed. What can I do?

I have used these brushes as a newbie to Manga Studio. I love them. Adding Bri's brushes along with Fenden's, and Kyle's brushes make for an incredible toolkit. I use all of them.

It feels weird to have my brushes compared/used alongside Kyle's and Frenden's, but thanks! Glad you're getting some use out of them!

These brushes are great, I appreciate you taking time to make them. If you are not familiar with Ray Frenden,I suggest you check out his custom Clip Studio Paint
(Manga Studio) brushes. They are very realistic looking.

I actually bought both his Photoshop and Manga Studio brush packs a while ago. Great stuff!

Kyle's Photoshop brushes are also very realistic and affordable, his ultimate pack is only$13.00 for 90 realistic looking media brushes. Once again thanks for the set.

I follow him so I've been getting all the Kyle brush updates! If I ever go back to Photoshop I'll grab the set, it looks really fun to use.

I'll have to buy Manga Studio 5 one day (when I'm not so poor X) ), but I'll definitely make use of these lovelies when the time comes. :)

The basic version is only $30 on Amazon right now if you can spare that much!

Please show me what you use these brushes for when you get around to it. I'm awfully curious to see what other people can do with them :D
