This document aim to provide standards to unify the default brush preset icons of Krita , and ease the work of preset builder who wants to have their default preset join Krita releases.

Color code

The brush preview feature a mini representation of the stroke. This stroke is colored with those color codes :

  • Black is "normal"
  • White is "erase" ( note : Checker pattern representing alpha too )
  • dark blue is color-smudge smearing mode ( note : little gradient in the stroke to a warmer color can helps )
  • purple is color-smudge dulling mode ( note : little gradient in the stroke to a warmer color can helps )
  • light-blue for smudge-only
  • FX presets can use distinct colors according to the fx-related resulting color
