How you draw with tablet?!
How you draw with tablet?!
I try both photoshop and Painter and use lot's of brushes ... But nothing same as pencil and paper!
That's very creative tool for painting, But really hateful for drawing!
I can't shade like HB or draw clean lines ... can't feel pressure sensitivity like pencil...
Whats wrong?! ... Do you really draw with that sh**!!???

Practice with it. If you want the pressure sensitivity, make sure you have the driver installed that'll enable Photoshop to register it. If you want the thin pencil sketch lines, a really small point/tip with the pencil tool in Photoshop on 90-100% opacity should do the trick. I personally use OpenCanvas for my finer sketch lines, as it feels more tactile.
Other than that, just play and experiment around in it. Sooner or later, your pencil and paper experience will transfer over.

You could put a piece of paper on your tablet if you want. I mean actually placing a piece of paper over the tablet surface. It will still be able to make strokes.
Nowruz is coming up soon :o Have fun!

What helped for me was to do 10 mins or so of warm up excersizes before drawing. Some ideas:
Try to draw a grid of perfectly horizontal and vertical lines.
Try to draw round circles with an X that crosses in the center.
Draw a series of long lines that cross eachother all in the same point.
Try drawing correct elipses.
I noticed that once I did these warm up rounds my hand eye coordination was better. Another important thing is to stop obsessing about getting the same quality as on paper with every line, that will just come by practicing.

If you're going to put paper over your tablet, your pen tip may end up getting used up a lot faster.

Hell yeah!! at last connecting internet with 44KB/S after 2 hours, 52 redials, 12 disconnections and 15 not responding messages!!! anyway...
rubbadub: your right, I need to stop obsessing about getting the same feeling as on paper and pencil!!
l33t fl33t: I can't do that, because I use Myelin-shield, thanks for warning!
Finally, I decide to draw traditionally like past, and scan it for digital painting or re-touching!
Thanks all...and sorry again for grammar!!

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
--- Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

niima, you might wanna try connecting to a vpn like http://hotspotshield.com/ to get around that youtube block. no idea how to improve that poor 56kb line though
good luck with your tablet, it just takes practice. i suggest just to fill a page with straight lines and circles and ellipses every day for warm-up and you'll get a pretty good feel for it like lickety!
