Something like this image. Basically thin on the ends and thicker in the middle.

Thanks

Select the corresponding 'Shape' option in the tool controls for the pencil/pen tool:

Something doesn't work? - Keeping an eye on the status bar can save you a lot of time!

(for some of those shapes, you can edit the ends' shapes later with the node tool)

Yes!
This is very good!
So far I have tried "From Clipboard". I had made a custom brush stroke like the one I showed in my post. And it's working very well.

Thank you Moini :)
