Question Pencil-like behavior

Hi!


I am a newbie using Corel PSP X7 / Krita 3.1.4 and I have a Wacom Intuos Pro (Small) v. 6.3.22-6 tablet all of which are running under Windows 7 Pro (64 bit).


I just started drawing and I don't like the way the pen behaves. What can I change so that the pen behaves more like a manual pencil on paper?


Thank you!


Doctor T

I think with Krita you can use pressure sensitivity, you need the brush controls.

Re: Pencil-like behavior

Did you try different brushes? Maybe you would prefer a program more geared toward imitating natural media? Of course, it will always be a little different. You might just need to get used to it.

Dear LavenderFrost,

Thank you for your reply.

Because of learning curves, for the time being, I'll stick to PSP and Krita.

Re: Pencil-like behavior

I've always felt comfortable with a wacom tablet, but never with the pencil tool. Somehow, it just doesn't behave like a real pencil. I once read, that if you put a piece of paper over your wacom, it will have the same feel as a pencil, with a little of drag rather than gliding over the smooth surface of the tablet. I imagine you'd wouldn't want a paper that is too heavy, or bumpy, but it's worth a shot.... maybe copy paper?

Re: Pencil-like behavior

I found an option for this in Corel PhotoPaint (but I'm sure PS also has something similar) in defining custom brushes. Just draw a few irregularly shaped brushes of different tone and create a custom brush from it. Make sure it rotates while drawing to create a natural effect. I usually make them between 120 and 200 pixels and when I use them I resize the to pencil thickness. It gives natural looking pencil lines, especially when using high transparency and drawing manually along the same direction in order to obtain the desired opacity.
