    Wacom - Different Pens?

    What are wacom's various pens good for?

    I mean they have for example airbrush-pens...but usually the software like ps or painter has got it all to use your standard pen in every penstyle (airbrush, brush, pencil etc.).

    Is there anybody who uses other pens than the standard one or knows if it makes sense to buy them?

    Hi Fozzybear - well, I bought an additional inking pen for my wacom but find myself using the standard pen all the time because of the erasor end (which the inking pen hasn't). However, if you define the standard pen as a pencil (for example) and the inking pen as a nib Painter (or Windows?) realizes when you switch tools automatically, so you can stop clicking around in the tool box. AND the inking pen has a much more "moveable" tip which enables you to imitiate a soft nib.

    Hope this helps.
