So, in photoshop, what I do is goto brush settings (that icon right under the word "image" up top, if you have trouble finding it). You then go into Shape Dynamics and set the Size Jitter [control] to Pen Pressure. I also turn on Smoothing. Of course, some brushes will give a better look in regards to what you're looking for, however, I pretty much use the default round brush for everything (sometimes switching between hard and soft). Lastly, you can take a look into using other programs that already have pencil-like preset brushes, and/or just give a better sketchy look than photoshop, such as:Edit: Some of the anatomy is wonky (story of my life) but I think I'll let Photoshop take care of that. Ok, now to start figuring out that tablet. To all you tablet users. How do you get your lines to look so sketchy? I gave it whirl and they look all thick and gross.
Paint Tool Sai (debatable, but I rather sketch in this program and paint in photoshop)
Autodesk Sketchbook [whatever edition]
Those are the only two other program, I've ever used, though there is still Manga Studio, etc.
