Need tilt-response for broad-nibbed pen (narrow to northeast, wide to southeast)
MyPaint version: 2.0.1 (version from OS repo)
Operating System + Version: openSUSE Tumbleweed with KDE 5.23.4
Make and Model # of Graphic Tablet: XP-Pen Artist 15.6 Pro with vendor-supplied linux driver
Select a brush that emulates a pencil with tilt support for shading. Holding tablet’s pen in a natural for a rightey, draw in the direction of the top right corner - see how it makes a broad line. Now draw toward the lower right, and you get a narrow line.
A broad-nibbed pen used for calligraphy should do the reverse. You can see this on the calligraphy tool if you have access to an older version of inkscape (0.92.5 on linux but I think it was already broken on the windows version).
I’m hoping to find that such a brush exists, or that an existing brush can be modified by a total noob to emulate a calligraphy pen. Or if mypaint isn’t really the right tool for lettering, well that’s a simple answer too, but I thought I’d check it out.
Thanks for any advice you can provide. -GEF
