Simulating uneven ink pressure? How? - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

Take a quick gander at this: <http://www.thumbrocket.com/samplecable3d.jpg> How did they simulate the uneven coloring of a water-based ink pen? Does anyone have a quick method? I have the font that is being used, just no quick method for making the uneven ink look? Thanks!...

    Gene,

    I would't even think of a font. Since I have a tablet (Graphire 2), which is pressure sensitive, I would write the text by hand.
    The pressure is then set up for opacity rather than width.
    Plus, Handwriting this way will prevent characters from being exactly the same.

    In the case I did not have a tablet I would write on paper, scan it, put it on a layer and carefully manipulate partial opacity with a soft eraser brush.

    If you don't have a tablet, adding an adjustment layer with blurred clouds applied to its mask might do the job.
