Should I start using the pencil tool to start drawing my stickmen or should I use the paint brush tool which i am currently using?

Somone said that your lines are straighter if you use the pencil tool instead of the brush tool.
And also what size should my stroke be if i were to use the pencil tool?
:Sweating: :Oh No!:

It honestly doesn't matter, but the pencil tool may cause many problems because you can't select a figure fully if you draw it with multiple strokes because it's a vector tool.

use the brush tool. Most people use that over the pencil tool. Or you can use the line tool.

Is the line tool easier to use? And how much thickness should i use?

Um, the brush tool should be more fluid because of the smoothness capabilities.

The thickness depends on how thick you want the stickfigures to be.

i like the line tool, it guarentees straight lines. I honestly think the brush looks sloppy, but most people disagree with that. and ive never tried the pencil.
