That's really cool! I use a laptop mouse so it'll be a bit harder for me though xD

When I attempt this using my tablet, I don't get the option to have it fade out like you do. So my ends look extremely blunt, which makes the overall image look terrible. I tried to set the pen pressure the same way as you did, but I don't have the Other Dynamic option to use. What do I do?

I haven't got a tablet, but I have the option "Pen Pressure" is it normal?
gurtagon's avatar
No, if you don't have a tablet the pen pressure will not work ;) I've tried it with & without a tablet =P

Does gimp allow pen pressure? I'm sure someone's asked this already but I'm too lazy to look >.> lol. Anyhoo, absolutely love this tutorial regardless.

I don't think so , I searched on GIMP for this but I only find it on Photoshop.
ThisIsKrissii's avatar
Fail. Photoshop it is I guess. Does Photoshop Elements have it, do you know?

This is so helpful, I actually saved it to my computer so I can do it with the tail also. Thanks for some awesome tutorials.
