#. Once you're satisfied with your brush and its settings you need to do one last thing (but click :guilabel:`Overwrite Brush` first!).
It's time now to create the Brush Preview graphic. The simplest and easiest way to do this for a brush of this type is to clear out the ScratchPad using the :guilabel:`Reset` button. Now, center your cursor in the Brush Preview square at the top of the ScratchPad and click once. You should see an image of your texture (in this case it would be the evergreen tree). In order to work correctly though the entire image should fit comfortably within the square. This might mean that you have to tweak the size of the brush. Once you have something you are happy with then click the :guilabel:`Overwrite Brush` button and your brush and its preview image will be saved.

Now there’s an easier way to set up alpha inheritance. If you select a layer or set of layers and press the :kbd:`Ctrl + Shift + G` shortcut, you create a quick clipping group. That is, you group the layers, and a ‘mask layer’ set with alpha inheritance is added on top.

The fact that alpha inheritance can use the composited transparency from a combination of layers means that you can have a layer with the erase-blending mode in between, and have that affect the area that the layer above is clipped to.
Above, the lower image is exactly the same as the upper one, except with the erase-layer hidden. Filters can also affect the alpha inheritance:

…And notice nothing happening. This is because the white isn’t transparent. You wouldn’t really want it to either, how else would you make convincing highlights?

So, typically, to get a black and white line art usable for coloring, you can set the blending mode of the line art layer to Multiply. You do this by selecting the layer and going to the drop-down that says **Normal** and setting that to **Multiply**.

Multiply is not a perfect solution however. For example, if through some image editing magic I make the line art blue, it results into this:
