Sad Brush download
Every time I try to download a brush for iris pieces it give me a download for gimp which is out of date and I already have the 2.8, I have even searched and the same thing and these claim to be gimp compatible. Plus these ar also "RAR" format, which I don' think gimp takes but not sure. Am I doing something wrong?? Have they discontinued free brush for the iris pieces to make eyes from scratch?? Even if I have to buy it I will. Please help someone.Huh

You can try making your own iris brush, either through print screen/screenshot button, or through gimp tools (selection, paths...)

If you go the copy route. When you copy something to the clipboard, it automatically becomes a brush until you copy something else. So maybe use the ellipse select to copy the iris brush after printscreening it.

here is a video I made on how to make a custom brush/dynamics:

RE: Brush download
similar to above

If it says the brush is 'Gimp compatible' then it is probably a PS .abr file.

So, extrapolating, is it something like this

http://rbcampos.deviantart.com/art/Iris-...1-62788206

Which downloads to a large file Iris_Brushes_Set_01_by_rbcampos.rar

A rar file is an archive same as a zip file, the difference is M$ Windows does not automatically unpack a something.rar

A good free utility for unpacking several types of archive including rar is 7-zip

http://www.7-zip.org/

That rar archive unpacks to a readme.txt and a single large file iris set 01.abr size 7 MB

Put that abr file in your Gimp profile in windows C:\Users\"yourname"\.gimp-2.8\brushes
