How do I get a custom brush affect where the line goes into a thin point and the brush looks like a triangle with a round side?

The one that is closest to what is shown in the AI tute is to create a stroke pressure curve, and save it as a style. See the following: Note, all styles are placed on a cog shape, which unfortunately is not well suited for representing line weights. The taper applied to various curves, set to different weights, and expanded into a vector shape. The 2nd way produces a different result. One can make a textured intensity brush that works w. the vector brush, pencil or pen. While the line form is a vector, the brush is a pixel image repeated or stretched along the vector, whose width and opacity, etc, can be varied by such things as stylus pressure or speed. The resulting shape remains modifiable along the vector, but is limited by the fineness of the bitmap. Thank you so much! Yes, this is is exactly what I needed.
