Alrighty, I promised to make a quick tutorial on setting up your own brush for digital inking with a Wacom Tablet in Adobe Illustrator. So here we go!
First create a new document. Then make sure the brushes palette is visible, if it's not then press F5 to open it.
Now click on the 'create new' icon to the left of the trash icon.
Select 'new calligraphic brush' and hit 'ok'.
Change the 'diameter' pulldown menu from 'fixed' to 'pressure'. Now change 'diameter' point size to 4pt and the variation to 4pt. Press 'ok' when you're done. Later on you can make smaller or larger brushes.
That's it! Have fun with the freedom and control of digital vector inks! Tomorrow I'll be posting a basic inking tutorial to get you started using your new tool.
