Ways of making look better…

Hi guys,

So basically I am creating a project in which a "painting" action sends x,y,z positions to using stroke commands, and creates curves.

However doesn’t exactly look great, and so I was wondering if anyone has managed to get it looking nice? I’m preferably looking for something which emulates a brush, or something near.

I have scoured the forums, and found really nice solutions with mgraphics and javascript (jsui-splinethings), but I have no idea when it comes to these languages.
