    Request for markers or ink pens

    hi,

    this drawing is done with markers on a rubber mat to get thickness variation. Is there anyone here that could replicate this in a custom brush, pen or marker.
    have tried the various cartoon sets on this site.

    thanx

    first, if you don't have a pressure sensitive stylus or tablet, you'll have trouble recreating this look in software. additionally, that alone may not be enough, as you would also need a pen sensitive to barrel rotation in order to change the edge orientation. Not all pens support this, and not all tools within AR support it either - you would have to use ink pen with the chisel tip setting. Also a medium to high smooth setting would help with the clean lines

    One thing you can try but it may take some time to master and that is to use the taper function with the ink pen brush.

    Try the settings in the attached pic. What the taper setting does is vary the end or ends of each stroke. Bias adjusts which end get the most tapering.

    Taper length is important too. Vary the speed of your stylus or mouse. Smoothing is an automatic curve smoothing setting.

    To keep trying can teach a person a lot and yield a lot of new tricks.

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.
    No more open minds or dogs for me.www.gms9810.com/
