    Custom Brush Eraser

    Hi there!

    If this option already exists sorry, you guys can delete the thread. But I did not find it. I wanted to use a custom brush as an eraser, so I can maintain the texture of the painting when erasing something. Maybe in the Brush Designer there could be a blend mode called "Erase", something like what Krita does. Or maybe add a setting to enable canvas texture with the Eraser tool.

    Cheers!

    I agree with this concept Daniel. I went looking for an option in Brush Designer to have it erase instead of add paint.

    The reason I think we need this is because I use under-paintings in my artwork and I want creative brush strokes to remove paint from a layer so that the underpainting shows through in a brush like fashion.

    This is on the official suggestions list There are some issues with adding an erase function, so no promises, but we will be looking into it.

    The eraser does actually respond to paint depth/texture, but only slightly at the low pressure range (as it's designed more to remove paint than edit it). You can see it happening if you use it on thick oil paint, but anything thinner won't make much difference. A handy work around for erasing specific brush patterns is to add the design on a separate layer then either turn that into a stencil or use the magic wand to grab the shape of the selection and switch layers to delete paint.

    How about adding smooth function to erasers?
