    iPad: How to make a "squiggle" or "scribble" brush?

    Hello,

    I sometimes like to draw using squiggles/scribbles, like so (quick example using Wacom in Photoshop):

    I'm pretty new to ArtRage, but I was wondering how hard it would be to make a brush that emulates a scribble/squiggle effect like above?

    Not sure if it makes a difference, but I'm on the iPad.

    You can't make a custom brush that will actually squiggle automatically in the iPad app, but you can get a stroke that works like a ballpoint pen so you can draw your own squiggles.

    Pick the Ink Pen, set Pressure*, Aspect, Opacity to 100%, turn off Smoothing and Taper Length (or leave Smoothing at 3%ish) and leave Square Head off. You will then have a stroke almost exactly like a ballpoint pen and you can squiggle away.

    *If you don't have a pressure sensitive stylus, you can ignore Pressure. Setting it to 100% stops it changing size on you.
