More brush settings similar to the sticker matrix for all tools
If Artrage had more brush options, I think it might be the best program for me as far as straight drawing/painting goes. I understand that the tools are meant to represent real media, but options like what is available in the sticker matrix(which I think is a wonderful feature) would make all the tools very versatile.
I can accomplish a lot with just the sticker settings, using it as a "custom brush", but I would like to use the real media features of the other tools.
The most amazing tool would be one where we could hand pick features from each tool to make a totally unique and extremely useful tool. For example: a sticker graphic with oil brush impasto and blending, water color bleeding, airbrush build up, opacity set to pen pressure, graphic angle set to pen direction.
OK, so I got a little carried away. I will settle for the matrix on all the tools.

I tend to agree with you but the last thing i would want is to have all the clutter and choices of painter, or even essentials for that matter

When I purchased Painter I was blown away by the brush builder feature. Wow! How many choices and features! Now I finally build my perfect drawing tool!
I never used Painter seriously.
Same thing with the sticker variants matrix. Wow! Cool! Now I can! Now... never tried to modify a sticker. Just used pencil, oils, watercolors.
So... for me it's yes! Add the matrix to each tool is a good enhancement to sell more copies to "Pros". But this feature should not interfere with the normal use of the application, nor slow it down.
If a matrix choice would be available for the pencil tool, sure i'll play with it to get the "right feeling", but probably then I'll reset everything to the defaults

I would also love to see the option to customise brushes as per request of the original poster. Obviously not to the detriment of what is already there.
I don't know if we need anything as complex as the matrix -
however enough people seem to be interested in having Pressure control the strokes Opacity that maybe this should be available in the user preferences?
