Hi, I wanna know how to make it so that even when I press down all the way on my pen tablet that my brush strokes don't reach 100% opacity. I recently downloaded some brushes from the artist, Angel Ganev and in his video where he goes over his settings he said, " Even when I press the hardest I still don't get 100% black, and this allows me to stack my brush strokes." *Note that in Angel's video he has opacity and flow set to 100%. I've changed all of my settings accordingly, but still have this issue, the only way I can kinda mimic this is if I press lightly and layer over top. I even emailed Angel, and he has no clue why it isn't working for me.

Here's a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLqG78V1rx0&list=PLz4l1wAU1EfMFogxi5k9dbs6nOLPdUIoO&index=3&t=450s

 

What it's supposed to look like:

Hi VinnyT12,

 

If you look at your What I have caoture, take a look at the top of the toolbar.

 

You have size enabled but not opcacity. It's the second icon from the right. The concentric circles with a pencil in it.

 

That should sort it.

 

Also, consider setting up your wacom using the wacom control panel.

 

Here is a resource that is helpful.

Happy artmaiking
