Now I know this is probably the wrong section, but because it's a pretty general question I figured it fits in "anything goes"
This is purely for traditional illustration, because Illustrator and Photoshop have brushes for the most part for things like this. I'm wondering what's the best way, and best utensil to use to get a tapered line at the end of my strokes.
I'm guessing it's something like a brush pen and using various degrees of pressure to get that tapering to a point. But some posters I've seen, such as Rhys Cooper's recent NIN posters, that tapering can get incredibly fine.
How do you go about it? Is it just a case of a steady hand and taking your time? Or do you do all your "traditional" freehand drawing in photoshop so it looks like it's traditional hand work, but with the digital level of presicion.
