He's not a Vegetarian
Stumbled thru a bunch of apps on it til I finished in the most flexible and pleasant brush for my mark making style - ArtStudio. I really do have high hopes for ProCreate's next version as it's UI is just golden. I haven't tried LayersPro, but I think I've covered most of the other popular ones so far.
Oh, I forgot - I love drawing in SketchClub. It's got that crazy procedural "sketch" mode. I found it's painter only good for people who can use scatter brushes to their advantage. It's opacity dynamics aren't doing it for me.
Strange none use Painter's "sample stroke" or whatever it's called, that would sample, and later use your "more typical" stroke. You'd figure maybe it would be able to capture some dynamic info from that to help inform subsequent strokes.
Or perhaps better yet - like Toonboom's paradigm (dunno if they still do this) which never read pressure, but rather would procedurally redraw your last stroke, emulating a fading in and out over the length of the stroke. The dynamics of this was somehow editable to your liking. It was fast enough not to get in the way. I wonder if that would be irritating with a painting program.
