    Is there a way to create a "Biro" pen style on Artrage?

    Hey guys...

    I'm hoping this is the right place to post this...

    I've been a long time user of Artrage and a frequent visitor to this forum, and I was just wondering if anyone knew of a way to create an effect that looks simillar to using a Bic Biro (Ballpoint) style pen on Artrage?

    I usually use the ArtPen tool for a lot of my illustrative work, which does a great job, but even on size 1, it still appears too thick and full to pass as a Ballpoint style mark...

    Many thanks in advance, and no worries if my request is a bit far-fetched and isn't at all possible with Artrage!

    I've attached a couple of pics to give you a better idea of what I mean...(The first is a piece of work I did using a Biro Pen and the 2nd is a pic of a Biro)

    Cheers

    Joel

    I suppose you could try increasing the image size dimensions while working on it. The larger you make the image dimensions, the smaller the tool size will be. When you're done with the image, you should then be able to scale the image down to the proper dimensions.
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Iīd second (or third) the suggestion to zoom and increase your canvas size while working with a 1% tool. When you return to 100% it should look a bit less heavy and clunky. Canīt guarantee that, but itīs worth a try.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Cheers for your suggestions guys...I'll have to try them out tomorrow, when I get a chance...the principal that you've all mentioned (i.e. changing the canvas size) seems to make perfect sense!...

    So many thanks again, for your help...

    Another tool which might lend itself well to this would be the pencil with precise mode turned on ( make sure you have the latest version of ArtRage ) and a low degree of softness.

    I posted this in another thread already, but just in case you didn't see it or if someone else is looking, here is a screen shot with the settings I use for the Felt Pen tool that I think works well to imitate a pic/biro pen. I use the Fine Canvas or basic Paper grain canvas settings when using it.
