I currently got the intuos art wacom tablet so still learning how to use it. I'm currently in illustrator trying to draw out a map and the brush tool is doing something weird and I cannot figure out why. You can see in my image that where there are curves the black slightly spills over and is filling in half the curve with black. Brush setting is set up as a new calligraphic brush and the size is set to pressure, 3pt-3pt.

I think you can play around with this configuration panel to remove these strange curves.

BUT the main solution that I always use is to make line/curve shorter like the example shown below: enter image description here You can see clearly the difference between the 2 trees leaf.

I know this post is a little cold but for anyone still running into this issue, set the roundness to 100% under the 'Calligraphic Brush Options' along with your size set with a variable of 'Pressure' (plus a point value for the 'Variation') and you should be good to go! From there you can fine-tune the look of the stroke by adjusting other values such as the 'Angle' option.
