    I can't see what I'm doing...

    when I'm drawing, I don't see what I draw... when I pick up the pen - line is always much longer... How do I fix that? Or can I? I like this program but this is really a big problem...

    It's difficult when I'm drawing, I move with cursor by about 2 cm (inch), but I can't see no change...
    It's a shame, because I like everything else on this program, but I can't work like this... I think I have to find something else for me... (or wait to patch / Art Rage 3)

    The way ArtRage tracks your brush movements means it needs to know where you're going and how you're getting there before it can apply paint, so it can't tell what is meant to appear under the brush head until the brush (or chalk) has passed through the area or been lifted. The end of the stroke looks different from the body of the stroke because we simulate things like how the bristles are clumping as they are dragged, and because our strokes have this additional detail we can't just lay down 'stroke ends' in a row to make a complete stroke and you get this effect.

    The stroke is completed when the tool is lifted and your cursor tells you where the end will be. In some ways it would be easier if the cursor was a solid colour rather than a hollow ring. As it is here, you're seeing through a transparent chalk to what's underneath. If you think of it like a normal chalk and make fairly natural gestures it should flow a bit more easily.
