Bug Description

Hi. I am a inkscape user since the first version. I was an AI, CorelDraw and Sodipodi user before! :)
I start to work drawing some jobs in Adobe Flash last days, and the way the brush works mixing same color in one object is simple and great workflow.
I 'm impressed with the new version of inkscape (as the other versions) and the features it brings to us. It could br great to have a brush like in Adobe Flash in Inkscape. The calligraphic brush is the close tool to do it, but if you use it like painting, growing a shape, it will leave nodes and lines inside the shape, and not a filled shape. Painting like this is more natural way to draw.

I hope it make sense to someone! :)
Thank you for reading and congratulations for the dev team. Inkscape is an amazing creation software, for SURE!!
Cheers

If you paint while holding Shift, you won't get any unnecessary nodes. Using the "Marker" preset will give you a similar brush as to Flash.

Do you think that covers your needs? Meanwhile I'm setting this as "Incomplete". Feel free to revert the status after you've replied back.

Holla Pablo!

I was testing it and it is pretty good, btw. But it is not quite the same
idea yet.
It merges the new painting with the old one. That is ok. But it doesn't do
it with it own new painting. Did you understand me ? It should work like
painting on Gimp, for example, but still a vector. At least to have an
option for that.

I made a search to be able to see what do I mean and I found more
interesting option for a Vector Brush Tool.

Please, watch it until 5:15.

I never played some much with Flash, but seeing this amazing feature makes
me want something to our Inkscape! It is so useful and natural for the
artist to use it. IMHO, it is the best brush tool concept on the market
today.

Hi, I'm reviving this thread because we are using Inkscape a lot in our work instead illustrator, Flash or Corel and there is some artists here at the studio that still using Flash for Vector drawing, because it's easier than Inkscape's workflow.
I was trying to use Inkscape for the same and natural way to paint using this techniques and I came with this conclusion:
- Shift+Draw caligraphic/Brush Strokes are quite good enough already, but it lacks when trying to make new coloured shapes/strokes and, sometimes, gives some artifacts;
- Would be great to have the same boolean painting option like Flash brush painting. And if you pick the same color, will join the shape without holding shit (avoiding this unconfortable blocking design);
- The Sculpt tool is a great addition, but feels it lacks at a consistent workflow/pipeline for painting vectors without using the edit tool (no slow bezier editing), making more natural for the artist to draw.

It looks I'm putting Inkscape down, but it is not true. I LOVE Inkscape. I forgot how to use Corel or Illustrator because it is so easier to make my art on Inkscape! As the artists says here: Blender and Inkscape are easier to replace 3dMax and Illustrator than Gimp replacing Photoshop. So true! But we talk about the inkscape workflow and we agreed to ask you if it is possible to enhance those tools, to approach to the Flash painting workflow. I only compare with it because the natural way to paint vector that they have.

I hope It is important to someone else, mainly the developers!! ;)
I can help with any information, documentation, planning, what else that is reachable to me to help develop it. Feel free to contact me for anything, even to invite to have a beer! :)

Cheerios
