I'm having tons of trouble drawing lines consistently on my tablet (and on paper, but I'm trying to get better with the tablet as that is what I want to be using).
I must be doing something drastically wrong, I can spend an hour or two a day just drawing straight lines and I'm not improving at all. I've tried drawing two dots and connecting them with a straight line and this produces an even worse line than if I imagine the two dots in the first place.
Same goes with circles and pretty much any other shape (but curved lines look less bad when I "miss" just because its harder to see how much they've deviated from the original curved line I was going for).
But since I cannot draw circles or straight lines, I pretty much can't draw anything I want to, since it will always come out looking completely different from what I'm envisioning.
Even loading up a line art in photoshop and tracing over it takes me several hours for something really simple, just because I cannot reproduce the nice lines of the original drawing.
I try drawing from the wrist but that gives me arc'd lines, drawing from the arm gives me straighter lines with much less accuracy (ending at a different point than I was aiming for, and much farther off...) if I draw with my fingers, then one straight line has to be made of several really small ones, which "works" but definitely gives broken lines and whatnot.
Anyone have any ideas? or maybe somewhere I can go to watch videos of people's hands and movements... I'm stumped.
