I just bought an Intuos 3 6x8, as I am just getting into digital painting. Now the tablet is advertised to have 1024 levels of pressure sense. However, it seems that I have to slighty press on the tablet to make the pen pick up a line/brushstroke. Now in real life, you could simply drag a pencil without putting any pressure on it to make it draw a very faint line.
Is it normal to have to slightly press to get the pen to engage?
Also, I was playing with the wacom control panel, and when I do the pressure test, I can't get the pressure to gradually increase. It sort of skips, never goes in a fluid motion.
Thanks for your time.
