What an awesome tutorial! :D One question though: My lines (when I select "simulate pressure") end up being way, way thick in the middle and super thin at the ends. Are there any particular settings that you lean towards to avoid this, and get  a more naturally tapered line?

Yep! If you play with your minimum diameter and set it to around 50%, you get a much more balanced line! >w<

While I'm used with the pen tool in Illustrator, I'd never thought you could the same in Photoshop. Thank you very much for this tutorial! :D

I'm not really sure about how to get my settings right, as it looks pretty different in PS6. Could you describe what they'd be called to get the same settings as in this tutorial?

:iconpopo-licious:
Popo-Licious Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sure! The actual toolbox icon should be set to Pen Tool. (Not freeform or anything like that.) The two buttons at the top are Paths and Pen Tool. :3

I'm pretty stuck with this tutorial, I CTRL and drag into a curve and it blacks out as a half circle- what am I doing wrong?

You need to change your settings. Check out the first image in the tutorial and make sure your settings are identical to the ones circled. :3

Unfortunately, that program does not support any form of the pen tool. D: I'm sorry!

This was a great tutorial! Most helpful one I've seen. I just started trying (emphasis on trying) to use the pen tool to make lineart and have been failing miserably. Hopefully I can somewhat do it now after seeing this haha
