I found out I like the smeary round tool. Fun little brush to use and kinda makes a good semi-mix/blocking in brush. However I noticed after using it for a while that the feature settings doesn't stay consistent. For example, when the brush is at the size of 22 the feature setting is at 4. Now I make it smaller and change the size a bit while I paint and maybe a few minutes later I notice my brush strokes are showing up more (which is something I don't want as much usually) and so I put the size back to 22 and I find out that now my feature is at 6. Why is this? Also why do airbrush tools "lighten" up my canvas/everything on it when I choose the brush sometimes? I find it annoying and I want that off.
PS: If I can't fix the feature setting what kind of brush could I use that works similar? I don't like artists oils that much because when I blend I get these sharp brush strokes in the blend and that usually requires me to blend those in after. I like the smear effect with smeary round since it is soft when it blends and such.
