Dear Photoshop team,

I'm writing this to share an idea for your program. I have had the opportunity of working with your program for the past 14 years. During the past 3, I've worked as a full-time illustrator. I have noticed there is a lack of an option in your program that could be very useful to artists. And so, would like to share this idea: the option to turn off brush edge anti-aliasing in brush settings.

The Pencil tool is not enough - since it eliminates many important settings from the brush options. The Pencil tool does not have the same options as the brush tool.

In this link is a visual explanation of the idea, why it would be useful to artists (it would provide crisper, sharper brush mark edges), and a mockup of what this anti-aliasing button could look like:

Below is an unfinished dragon sketch made with Photoshop. I'm not sure if showing this artwork will give more weight to the idea. But at least it is worth trying.

Below are some finished art pieces.

Also below is the exact brush used to paint the dragon and cat eye examples. If for some reason the brush may be important.

Thank you immensely for considering this idea,
