Brushes
Just grabbed GIMP (on Windows) to try and mimic this tutorial but found a problem fairly quickly. For one, I don't seem to have the brush that he has, Circle (11), which I'm assuming is a basic choice. The closest I have is "Hardness 100". Also his brush attributes controls size with a "Scale" slider, whereas mine is a "Size" slider. I also have "Aspect Ratio" and "Angle" sliders. I know I could get a relatively equal setting, but I was just wondering if anyone could help me figure out the difference so that I don't have to.

I'm running v2.8
Am using a Wacom tablet with my comp if that makes any difference.

RE: Brushes
The tutorial must be for 2.6. The brush handling has changed in 2.8. Circle(11) is a 100% had brush with a 11px diameter.

RE: Brushes
I'm still not 100% with Gimp 2.8 but FWIW

That brush is there, but AFAIK it is not enabled, hence the script does not find it. No good having another brush the same size, needs the name.

Edit: finally managed to see the video, I thought there was a script involved, but no just the old gimp brushes.

Fixes.
1. The brush is in the global gimp brush folder in a sub-folder depending on windoze system
<something>\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\brushes\gimp-obsolete-files
copy it to your local brushes folder. <something>\.gimp-2.8\brushes

2. As before but copy it to one of the gimp 2.8 global brush folders maybe
<something>\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\brushes\basic

3. Probably the easiest way, enable the 'gimp-obsolete-files' folder in Edit -> Preferences -> Folders -> Brushes.

screenshots in that order http://i.imgur.com/IfNpX.jpg

one of those should work, I would go for no.1
