I've seen such in Clip Studio Paint (ex Manga Studio). There is brush that makes such strokes that when you made a stroke it's shape became better: it became more smooth and tips became sharp. It may be raster or vector - doesn't matter. It's called "For effect brush". Is there something free of cheaper that Clip Studio ? I would appreciate recommendations both for Linux and Windows.

  • Do you want to make strokes pointy? Or just smoother?

I think Krita is a good option.

Krita is a professional FREE and open source painting program, and has Brush Stabilizers.

It's available for Linux, Windows and Mac.

You could see the full features in https://krita.org/en/features/highlights/

  • I forgot to say that is available for Linux, Windows and Mac. I'll edit my answer Mar 1, 2019 at 9:11
  • Thank you, didn't know Krita has such tool, similar, thought not as good as what Clip Stuio has.
