Hi Sam, thanks for your comments! Having control over amount of texture and especially letting opacity go to 100% would not be that difficult to do.
But could you explain, or maybe show with examples, what exactly you mean by “paper feel”, “character” and “traditional look”? Maybe you mean make it a more realistic real pencil – which is hard to do before we get to it (get to the actual brush system).
Mike, thanks for your participation and support of the whole project. Much appreciated!
