I LOVE the fact that in Photoshop I can right click a path and stroke it with a brush, I check "Simulate pressure" and I get a nice even stroke from thin to wide back to thin.
I can't seem to reproduce this in illustrator. Should be easy, but why can't I get it to look just as smooth. I've tried the calligraphic brushes, they don't do it. I've tried art brushes, still not happy. Any suggestions?
You can do it two ways and you might like the control you have in AI better there is the width tool in the tool bar which will allow you to change the width of a stroke at any point on the stroke and if you want to do use it to get a similar result as you get in PS just use the width tool to decrease the width f the stroke at both ends.
Or you can use or create a profile that you can apply from the stroke panel.
This is done witht he width tool
This is with a profile applied.
