gbr (or a couple of other possibilities) is what you want. Have you

Actually I'd be surprised if you found many brushes on torrent sites
(Bittorrent is generally used for large files which would use up a lot

It sounds like you've had at least some success downloading a .gbr
file but haven't managed to get it to show up in GIMP yet, does the
