when doing digital painting, painting while zoomed out is really important. this prevent the artist to have " Tunnel Vision " and to easily notice the big mistakes the artist might be making..
generally, I prefer to use smaller brush size when sketching(the smaller the better..atleast for me). unfortunately i can only do a certain size of 'small-ness' when zoomed out because if my brush size gets too small, the crosshair appears. the crosshairs hinders my vision on the brush which makes focusing on the painting quite irksome...now you can just simply zoom in enough till the crosshair disappear but that kinda defeats the purpose of 'painting while zoomed out...
a good example to the idea i'm talking about is from another painting software called "Krita"
Krita's brush tool allows you to make the brush size go as small as possible without making a crosshair appear... regardless whether you're zoomed in or out..which makes painting less irritating and much smoother cause there's nothing hindering to your view on the brush cursor...
