When I draw fur on a surface that is already shaded or has a color gradient I always find myself in the situation where I basically pick the color from the canvas and make it a few steps lighter before every brush stroke. I wondered if I could have a (smudge) brush that basically “autopicks” the color from where I start the stroke, ideally mixing it with the foreground or background color of the brush.
Currently I use a version of the Wet_Bristles_Rough Brush for that.
Does anyone know a way how I could modify the brush settings to get this “autopick” behavior, if possible at all?
I experimented with disabling Color Rate altogether but then the Value preset which I use to give the stroke a darker beginning and a lighter end has no effect anymore.
