The Artistic Pencil draws lines with sharp boundaries and applies paint smoothly (without relief). Press P to quickly access this tool.
The tool's parameters will be shown in a floating box over an image (by right-clicking the mouse) and also in the Settings Panel.
To change the setting for a parameter, enter a numerical value in its box and press Enter (Mac: Return) or move the slider.
|Fill = 10||Fill = 80|
|Stroke of Artistic Pencil|
|Tilt = 30||Tilt = 80|
|Grain = 30||Grain = 100|
The pencil's color is set in the Color/Swatches palettes. To choose a different color bring the cursor over the spectral bar (the cursor will take the shape of a pipette) and click on the desired color or double-click on the square and choose a color from the Select Color dialog. In some cases, selecting a color is more convenient than manually selecting the components of a color via the sliders.
