I want to know is there any way to simulate pen pressure for Photoshop without a tablet? A plugin? some sort of brush? Can someone link me a tutorial or something. I just want to doodle in Photoshop. I don't want a career in graphic design.
If you don't have a presure sensitive device, the options that come to my mind are:
A program that recognizes mouse speed. MyPaint http://mypaint.org
Using a brush with an angle. Like a calligraphy pen.
Using paths inside Photoshop: http://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/2011/05/simulating-pressure-when-stroking-a-path.html
Some vector based programs can add a brush to a path. In ilustrator they are called Natural Media. In Corel Draw Artistic Media.
