Double-loading
There's a new feature for painting with "double-loading". Imagine you want to paint with two colors, not just one, the primary color.

You can have a primary color as well as a secondary color collected into the brush image quite easily now with this trick. In fact, it can grab a whole bunch of pixles of various colors from the image buffer to add to the brush. But this will simplify it to see a starting use case.

Let's say you have a red primary and a yellow secondary color, aka the background color.

Start with erasing the the background color, such as some yellow color.



How paint a small dab of the red primary color with the custom brush:
- open brush settings
- select the Custom tab
- set the size of your brush
- and paint a small dab or blob




Next, look for the new option on that Custom interface:  Double load



   
Move the cursor close to the red dab you painted just earlier. It will appear in the brush size preview



Click to pick up that mix of both colors.

Now, if you paint with it, both colors will appear as being present in the brush.

It's more apparent if you erase the background to a different color. It also helps to have the brush rotation enabled.




It gets even more interesting when adding a drop-shadow to the brush




It's of course not just a color we're loading, it's pixels from a picture, a portion of the image that's already in the image buffer. It can have many colors, gradients and more already in there. This new mechanism for double loading can make creation of new brushes a simple trick.
