These updates are so much fun to paint with, I would need to take some time to come up with good feeling, finished brush presets. Krita 5 will be a blast, I have a feeling.
Considering these great changes to height and smudge functions, would it be feasible to combine this with a clone function? I mean to sample multiple colors at once like the clone tool instead of a single color. That would make it even more realistic since when you paint and the brush is dirty/filled with color, it mixes what is in the brush and on the canvas at once. Would that be possible or is it completely out of scope?
Here’s an example of clone + height, I used the Height Build of Krita from @Deif_Lou, with a canvas pattern. With smudge functionality this would be a game changer.
Two points to the problems of clone brushes right now:
- users should be able to keep the sampled colors “as is”, meaning no scaling up or down, with a fixed size/stretch to the brush cursor.
- the sampled area shouldn’t stay an active point on the canvas all the time, it distracts while painting.
