    Why not make it 1 file to download.. so annoying, get ya clue on

  • Steven Snell

    Johnny,
    Making one file with all of the brushes would be against the terms of service of the creators of the brushes. Re-distribution is forbidden, therefore I can link to them but not re-package them in a zip file and distribute.

    Are these free for commercial use as well?

  • Steven Snell

    JB,
    Some are and some are not. You’ll have to see the terms of use set by the creators of the brushes. The ones from Bittbox are great quality and can be used for commercial work.

    Hey I just wanted to let you know, I actually like the piece of writing on your blog. But I am using Firefox on a machine running version 9.10 of Ubuntu and the design doesn’t seem quite proper. Not a big issue, I can still basically read the posts and research for info, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of tough to navigate with the config I am on. Keep up the great work!
