    Very nice sketch and in pen too, i was thinking pen would be more difficult because there are no shades of grey, but you've made it look easy, enticing to me, enough to encourage me to try one with pen myself

    I'll be watching your thread with anticipation, i'm currently learning to sketch, any pointers you would like to throw out whilst your posting your excellent sketches i'll be all ears

    What settings did you use for the pen tool ?

    Lovely wonder, that's a lovely plant.
    Silentman, the pens quite good I prefer it to paint, the paint keeps stopping, just like a real brush, but pen continues, although for a real looking sketch rough pencil is good on full soft.

    Silentman, thank for your interest and I am pleased that this post is inspiring for further work.
    And now something about the settings, drawing with a pencil in AR ... the appearance of lines affected types of paper, so we first set the paper settings for which a greater roughness is that is more broken line, and vice versa.
    Pencil can do that looks more like charcoal (tilt angle on 45-70%), as a shadow (tilt angle more than 70%) or clear lines (tilt angle less than 40%) depending on subjects that we draw.
    What color is concerned, I usually choose one color and tone changing with the softness tool. Drawing set with clear and across the line, and shadow adjust with softness tool and a thin line ... and of course, recommending the use of a tablet , because are more precising work than with the mouse. Lots of fun and good luck.

    Sandyg and Wenkat thanks to the commentary, I'm glad that you like it.

    P.S. I discover google translator jeeeee

    Wonder thanks for explaining the settings of the AR pencil in more detail,
    I've never used the tilt of the pencil, so I thank you for the explanation.

    Just some quick sketches probably never going to become a major pieces but they were done to improve my observation and line skills. I sent up a file for myself on my computer called sketch book to put these in.

    Hey Thanks Wonder for sharing those details with us, i came across some other settings last night too, which may be of interest to you.

    I found that adjusting the pen settings in my Wacom tablet properties affected the settings within ArtRage a great deal, after setting the pen to a firmer setting and adjusting the settings in the tool settings for the pencil in AR i was able to get a pencil the really felt a lot like a real pencil, i was able to get a grey rough line from pressing lightly and a black stroke from pressing harder, no harder than one would on a real pencil, i was over joyed.

    I haven't refined it completely yet but i found the best way to experiment is to open ArtRage and reduce the size it takes up on the monitor then open up the tablet properties and place them side by side, this way you can change the settings rapidly and thus refine your settings quite a lot and easily

    Seeing you like sketching, i felt i should let you know about 2 resources here that i have posted a little while ago, i thought you may have missed them, they are of flowers and stuff, if you would like some of them you can download them from my Flikr Photostream.

    Here's the links:

    Some cool pictures in there. Thanks for that link again Silentman, I never would have found that if you hadn't posted those links.
