    Lou Reed Olis

    I have just started using ArtRage and so far I'm pretty impressed.
    I have a question, is there a way to have my wacom pen respond to opacity rather than size. I would prefer the opacity option, particularly with the square oil brush.
    With sizing sensitivity the brush stroke starts as a point when in reality it should be as wide as the brush. Any Ideas?

    Here is my first finished painting - took about five hours though.

    Looks great. Interesting cat.

    As to your question, there are other areas in the forums where it might get answered more surely. I'm afraid I don't know.

    Hi Artworker
    Love Lou Reed, fantastic painting.

    There are no keyboard preferences to control thinners (I suspect as thinners/opacity are not handled programming wise the same across tools and not all tools have need for these).

    What I do as a work around is to make up a set of presets based on thinners, knowing that brush size can be changed dynamically (shift-drag).

    Correct, you may wish to check this one with technical... I dont have the issue on my Win7 desktop on the cintiq (brush fits width of cursor) but I do have the issue on my Win8 tablet pc where the start of the brush is only a small percentage of the width of the cursor.

    Welcome to the forum. Great portrait and palette. Can't help with your question but, I use a different layer when needed and the set the opacity to what I want before I merge all layers.
