Smooth lines and painting objects

First of all, I am a total beginner in the illustration world.
How to get smooth lines and painting objects to work well together? I use paths and then stroke path. Under brush tool, if i set the hardness to 100%, then i get sik-sak ugly contours on curve area but painting objects inside works well because paint goes right next to the black contour line. If i set the hardness less than 100%, contours become smoother and prettier but in turn, when painting object inside, there is a lighter area between contour and paint. I am a bit afraid of submitting such images to DT as I am pretty sure they will reject them due to poor performance.
Illustrators, how do you get rid of this problem?

Hi Risto40,
Unfortunately, I use basic inkscape, so I am not any help for you on your brush tool. I was hoping that someone will see your post and get you started in the right direction.
I did see your rose with heart and thought is was very beautiful.
Good luck on your illustrations!

I've tried inkscape once but the program seemed extremely difficult. I think I should try it once again some time and spend more time to learn it. I've seen lot of people are talking how good is inkscape.

If you have any time, read this thread.
It started out for beginners and all the trial and tribulations on the learning curve.
I am still learning, but now it is getting easier.
Inkscape is a wonderful program and it is free. Make sure that you have the latest release.
One thing about Inkscape, you will be able to do vectors too.

I do not know what program you are using, but looks and sounds like you are off to a good start.

If you have any problems, or need help with inkscape, just ask.
