Is there any way to show a brush cursor at the moment, or is this feature coming soon? Makes it very difficult to draw precisely if I can't see where my brush is.
Its not exactly clear what you'd expect. On iPad, there's no "hover" capability, so the cursor wouldn't appear until you touch the pencil to the surface _ at which time you can see the brush shape.
if you just want to see what the brush shape looks like, check out the brush size control on the left - you can see a representation of the shape. But for actual drawing, I can't imagine what you're after, since there's no "mouse-like" hover feature.
Hi Mike. The way that I draw, if I am tidying up edges either by erasing or drawing, I typically use a large brush size to minimise bumps etc and make the line as clean as possible. Without a cursor, or guide, to tell me how large the brush is when I touch the screen with my pen, it is very difficult to predict where I am going to erase or draw.
It's seeminly quite difficult to put into words what I am after, but Procreate has the feature (as do Cintiq's I believe) so you can see the size of the brush you are using as you press on the tablet.
I use Procreate also, on my iPad, and it has no brush cursor either. I'm still not sure what you expect.
Now, on Windows and MacOS, using Procreate, or Photoshop, there is a brush cursor as you move the mouse around. But on iPad, there is no such thing. Procreate on iPad behaves exactly like Fresco when it comes to showing the brush outline (you only see it when you touch the tip to the screen, and only via actual color deposited on the canvas).
Oh, now I see what you mean. It would be pointless on hard edged brushes with full opacity, but for soft edged or partially transparent brushes, I could see this having some purpose. Here's a screen shot from ProCreate. I suppose it could be requested through the feature request link in Fresco's app settings:
Just following up, I was looking through the feature request site and found this one. Go here to add your vote and any commentary you'd like to include:
