Jul 16 '18 at 14:31 comment added Billy Kerr If a pencil which behaves more like a real pencil is what you want, then why not use a real pencil on real paper, and scan it? You can't get more authentic than that!
Jul 16 '18 at 12:26 comment added Joonas Maybe if you could show what you brush is doing now and what you want it to do.... Well, I feel the best I can offer you is direct your attention to 3rd party brush packs. Here's two packs that might work for you: The sketcher collection brushes, RM My pencils
Jul 16 '18 at 11:53 comment added user124745 @Joonas I see that I wasn't quite clear about that. I have a tablet. In the third to last paragraph of my question I mention pressure in relation to Photoshop. I meant that I set the brush for pen pressure to affect the foreground-background jitter. That's the best I found for the effect I want.
Jul 16 '18 at 11:23 comment added Joonas I got a feeling that there is some misunderstanding on my part or there's something very wrong with your brush settings. I've always gone with the basic hard round brush and been happy with it.. Could also be thst you are pickier about the ye olde traditional look than I am. Reading your description multiple times I also realized you never mentioned pen pressure or anything. Are you using a mouse and not the stylus of a drawing tablet? Or are you using a drawing tablet, but the pen pressure is not working?
Jul 16 '18 at 11:13 comment added Joonas I don't get it to be honest.
Jul 16 '18 at 10:18 comment added user124745 @BillyKerr + Joonas: But my real pencil does get very dark when I press. Darker than the grey area I get from light pressure. Did you read my explanation about paper texture?

Jul 15 '18 at 22:28 comment added Joonas I'm with Billy on this one. I don't think I quite get the problem you are having... I think your only issue simulating a pencil is that you are not using the right color. If black color and brushing on top of one area leads to too dark of a color, then what if you set your color to gray instead? That darker area might still happen anyways if the brush tool Blend mode is not set to Normal and same applies to layers, so be aware of that. — If you are super into traditional look and feel, you may want to try Corel Painter instead.
