Attachments: Example of ellipse tool Krita vs Aseprite

Example of ellipse tool Krita vs Aseprite

When you choose brush preset pixel1 (1px for using in pixel art) and trying to draw a circle - no matter the diameter, the circle/ellipse is always crooked. As attachment I uploaded Krita circle and for example Aseprite (but this 2nd app not matter, as other apps has also always symmetric, straight shape). There is impossible to get straight circle with this tool, after draw - always must be corrected by hand.
I did reset all settings for Krita (removed whole Library/Application Support/Krita).
The circle selection tool is perfect rounded.

Just notice, krita-4.0.0-prealpha.2 still has this issue.

Of course. The code that draws an ellipse has not changed.

This is absolutely killing me here, guys.  This feels like a very critical feature, the ability to make correct symmetrical circles.

Well, Krita's focus is not really on pixel art, so while I seem to remember someone started working on this, they didn't get good results either and gave up.
