    Try to paint with the Pen tool instead of the pencil, it is accurate to the pixel.
    may be longer but you get exactly what you wanted.

    doesn't illustrator support like the one in Flash, when you click the pencil tool, you are opt whether it is smooth, straigthen, or ink. Does illustrator have that too?

    Well, sort of.
    Double-click on the pencil icon and you will be presented its options.
    If you want pin point acuracy of what you draw on the pencil, just slide the two bars to the left. But you will end up with more little squares, which is what makes the size of the file go up.
