I'm trying to paint a smooth dot with the 50% smooth brush.

However, GIMP draws it sharp instead of smooth.

What am I doing wrong here?

"View->Snap to Grid" is turned off.

Thank you.

This is because you are using the "Pencil" and not the "Brush". The "Pencil" doesn't do soft edges (this is its main (only?) difference with the brush).
