people are talking about clone + color smudge…but pixel + color smudge? This post on the KDE forum Help me recreate a brush! • KDE Community Forums caught my attention.
The OP wanted a brush like Sai’s marker brush
the closest brush they could find in Krita was the basic_tip_default (krita 3), just a pixel brush with opacity option on.
sai’s marker brush vs Krita’s color smudge brush
@wolthera explains that sai’s marker brush is like a pixel brush but with subtle color smudging. I tried and it is true, the property smear alpha in dulling mode created the brush effect (but it was more thick paint feeling than a pixel brush).
i think having something similar will be nice. there is something special about the look of the pixel brush. will it be too difficult to implement later (thinking about rgba tips, & more)? does krita not need it? what do you think?
