InkFlow v2 simply adds ink simulation. There are 4 new realistic effects that can be added to each stroke:
Feathering (where the ink “feathers” into the paper along the edges)
Bleed (where the start of the stroke blotches due to excess ink)
End-tapering (where the nib leaves the paper slowly at the end of the stroke) - combined control with bleed
Splatters (similar to our new AG Splatter effect, but now taking into account brush width, calligraphic effects, etc.)
