Exact ! Are exactly the same !!
this demonstrate beyond doubts that current defaults are wrong.
Should be obvious that the pen tool , the brush tool and the clone and healing
tools are different tools with a different use ...and so they require 3 quite

If default is bad chosen the first user sensation will be of a crappy or
on the contrary better chosen default may give a good impression of a even
I may well understand that developer have no time for "the search for the
best defaults" but maybe is here that users may help developers

That is correct,in general
In the particular cases is just needed to use a animated "star" brush on a dark
BG to guess its possible use...populate the sky of stars , similar but not
Same for "grass or stones" animated brushes
I see a different problem:
Is too difficult browsing brushes notice that there are 4 quite different
types of of brushes mixed :
1 normal (Greyscale gbr that use FG and BG colors)
2 colored (RGB gbr with their own colours)
3 "nozzles" (or tubes, gih as you prefer call them)
Obviously without guessing that the chosen brush is a "nozzle" may be hard use
it at best, same for procedural brushes
Is missed a clear visible hints to distinguish ... for this tagging should
help if not solve
