Not sure if this is the right place but I would like to make a suggestion for DAP. I love this program, it gives results like no other. However, some of the presets I would like to be enhanced to be more animal friendly. I like a more natural look - oil paint like Rembrandt, pencil, pen and ink, etc. A lot of the existing presets are very good. The pencil is one I would use a lot but the strokes are so long in length and even after thousands of strokes some of the large pencil strokes are still in the result. I tried making the length shorter but the result was disastrous. Enclosed is a sample, maybe it's just me and there might be some way I can help this out? I know I can brush back but when I do it then looks more like a photo. The attachment is straight from DAP with realistic/dry and Faithful/real set to the max. It would be better if all those very long strokes were not left when it is finished. I tried on another effort to soft reveal but for some odd reason where I brush is much lighter.

Try the "Funky Colored Pencils" AOP I created several years ago. You can download it here: http://dap.mediachance.com/archives/862#more-862. If it's not exactly what you want, modify it (the brushes primarily) to suit yourself.

Also you can try DAP_LIPO, there is a several presets that imitate pencil sketch (B & W and color) and you can try to modify it with unlocking brush rotate...
