We'll be right with you after this word from our (demented) sponsor.
Did that get your attention?
Here are some brushes, patterns, and gradients that you can add to your personal resources for The GIMP, the wonderful, equally free, "GNU" Image Manipulation Program from the nice folks at gimp.org. Just download the indicated zip files that archive the resources, unpack them into the appropriate one of the brushes, gradients, and patterns directories wherever your personal GIMP stuff is stored for you, and the next time you start The GIMP, they will be right there available to be used by you.
This archive is organized as a set of download links right here on the main page, and beside each download link, a link to an examples page where you can preview what you will be able to do with what you get.
Mainly, this keeps large graphics files off this main page. Fair warning: some of the rest of the pages here contain PNG images a couple of mibibytes in size, so if you're accessing this archive on a slow connection, expect painful waits.
Without further chatter then, here's the Stuff!
