You use airbrush for lineart?? I have never heard of that, I normally use pen for lineart. You think airbrush is easier to work with?

So I have a tablet that is sensitive to pressure ;w; the thing is, it won't do as said in your tutorial. it still makes it thick. I do the softish touch and it makes a hard thick line D8> what shoud I do?

You could try to put the stabillizer on the lowest. Or either the edge shape on the first one? The edge shape are the icons above the size of the brush.

It varies on the quality of the tablet and the company. There are tablets sold for around $80 and there are tablets sold for around $1000.
If it's lower than $100, then it's either small or isn't a very good quality tablet. (I bought a huge one for around $90 a few years ago, but it was really bad and broke pretty quickly. I also couldn't get the pressure to work ; n ; )
For a beginner, I guess something below $100 is fine assuming you're not doing anything major.

Hope I helped ^ ^

nice tutorial, this was quite helpful, since i think about getting a graphic tablet myself ^^  i have one question though: is it possible to disable the funktion, that the opacity of the line changes with the pen pressure? i mean, especially for lineart i would probably prefer a constant opacity ^^"

Help. I've tried Sai a few years ago and the lines would be as if made with a real brush (like what you have shown above with a gradient from the start of the stroke to the end... it is shown that the line becomes thinner at the end of the stroke. I know that this also has something to do with tip sensitivity and how hard you press onto the tablet. I use a wacom bamboo as well and long ago, i would get lines like the one's on your image but now, whenever i attempt a stroke, the line would be of even width all through out the stroke no matter how hard or softly i press onto the tablet. I wonder if you have a solution for this. :(

Click on the pen and below it is something called Min size, drag that down from 100 and you should have pen pressure now. :)
