`Licorice' draws the atoms as spheres and the bonds as cylinders. The difference between this and `CPK' is that the sphere radius is not controllable; instead, it is made the same size as the bond. This makes for a nice, smooth transition and is one of the most often used representations. It can be rather slow for large molecules.
