Nothing too special here. I mainly use a square brush (you can find them in default brushes) with these settings. Feel free to play around the dual brush! Hope that helps.
Actually I looked up a bunch of articles and I find that most of the writers they have state that Link stays as a guy. However no such words directly came out of Nintendo’s mouth. In fact their answers to questions are pretty vague and it could be taken in more ways than one. (These guys play it really safe not to mention too much when a game is in production.) So there is still a possibility. The game is still in the works and anything can change. We’ll just have to see what the game is like when they have more to show! Not that it matters but I think it’ll be a nice change for once. B) Although if Nintendo did say it in exact wording feel free to tell me otherwise, with a source link of course.
