    Try these pencil setting and see if it helps:

    1. Pressure 100%
    2. Softness: 0%
    3. Tilt Angle: 0%
    4. Size: Depending on the painting DPI, try different settings from 5% to 25%. Experiment with the size to get the effect that suits you.
    5. Turn "Precise" ON, which means the precise button will show OFF (this always confuses me ).

    Good luck Nightjar.

    PS: others may have other suggestions too.

    Tips on Better Graphite Pencil Drawing

    Pencil Drawing and Mark-Making
    In this pencil drawing lesson, we'll focus on the importance of mark-making. Mark-making is the expression we use to describe the process of applying pencil to paper. You can improve your pencil drawing skills by carefully considering your pencil and how it hits the page. Controlling and exploiting the possibilities of the mark is an important step in developing as an artist.

    Keep Your Pencils Sharp
    Use a Variety of Line
    Achieving Even Shading
    Control the Direction of Marks

    Thanks,
