Yes I also see you did the same for the nose as well Same rule applies. You want a smooth tapper, so trace the whole outline and fill it with the stroke color. I do admit, sometimes i use a stroke and tapper it on things and it does come out really ridged, but i do it LESS now xP If you're going to use a tapper using the width tool, use it for things such as Eyebrows, Eyelashes, Hooves and body outlines, and basically anything that is long enough. This is a small issue and i still do enjoy the vectors
Ohhhhh, I see what you are saying now! Sorry, I was confused. I see now how rough the shorter strokes look. This has been bothering me for a while now - I never could figure out how to fix it. Just outlining the stroke like you do with legs worked, this is great! Thank you so much for the tip! Do they look better now?
