    Tips for someone so darn used to the Pen Tool in other apps?

    What's some advice for nice smooth curves? I tend to get jagged curves freehand (drawing on my WACOM). It just feels too darn smooth for the technique I use on real media.

    Other than the usual advice of "practice, practice, practice" you could try the friskets stencils.

    I find it can help to tape down a sheet of textured paper on the Wacom surface. This gives a nice resistance to the stylus and allows for a more natural feel.

    You can also try the felt tips that are available for Wacom pens. This, too, alters the feel and speed at which the pen travels.
