Emulating Pencil
I have looked in this forum and on the web, and I cant find any really concise guidance on what must be a common problem; so...

I find your 'Pencil' tool creates a line that looks more like a fine point magic marker than any pencil I've ever used,

I would be interested in Guidance, settings that are know to work, to emulate a .5mm Mechanical; or reasonably fine point HB Pencil; the Pencil brushes I have found all seem to be for laying the Pencil on its side, not so much for point drawing; and if it's pretty simple to explain - how I might morph that for the standard range. 2H to 6B.

Please don't think Im asking for a book, just a little guidance to put me on the right path here. My main object is to tweak and repair my Traditional media work, which never survives the transition to digital at all well.

Also, no need for along explanation; but I was looking for a way to create my own brush filter, and could not find one; is that possible or am I wasting my time; again my intention is to create a menu that would emulate traditional pencils; as it seems all the brushes go into one folder? and cant be subdivided? (am I right about that?)

Thanks in advance BB.

RE: Emulating Pencil
Thanks much, for the tip on brushes, I'm sure that will save me a good few hours frustration.

I did realize a Filter is not a brush, it seems to be away to organize brushes, and I would very like to create custom filter that just shows the shapes I want, sort of a virtual pencil case.

Again thanks much for your reply.
