Question by Ben B: Why is my brush only showing up in light pink in Photoshop?
Iv been drawing a picture in photoshop for a while now and all of a sudden my brush turned a bright peach-pink colour.
the colour window says the brush is black and the erasor tool wont work on any of the lined i drew before the brush turned pink. only the pink ones.

Sounds like you might be in Quick Mask Mode. Press the letter q on the keyboard to toggle out of it.

Make sure you’re using the Brush Tool and not a selection brush.
