Hello everyone, I'm probally the worst digital Artist around. =/
Yes, a big statement but its true I can't draw with my tablet at all I'm so damn confused its funny. I can draw decent with a pencil and paper but I'm never able to recreate any of my works.
I'm fifteen and most likely one of the youngest members here, and I've joined this site to get help from the best since I couldn't get any info from the tutorials I managed to find.
I have Photoshop Elements 7.0 and a Wacom: Bamboo Fun Tablet, I do small doodles and such if you'd like to see my terrible terrible work I'll post some up mind you I can never really draw out my imagination which just tears me apart since I have these wild pictures in my head.
But anyways I hope I can rectify this problem and get past whats holding me back from drawing what I want to draw digitally.

Right now, your next step on that journey should be to start a sketchbook in the sketchbook section, and show us your work. Then we can give you specific critiques to help you focus on areas to improve. You can also post your work in the critique/WIP section if you like.

All of these threads that pop up can be summed up with the word practice. Keep drawing with your tablet and you will get used to it.

Practice? I play around with it everyday since I got it, and I'm still not getting anywhere.

When did you get it? It can take a while to get used to drawing with a tablet. When I first tried it I couldn't control my lines at all...
Also, what's the problem, exactly? Is it just lack of control, or something specific? (If your tablet feels REALLY weird to draw with, check the tablet preferences, sometimes you have to adjust them, the default settings aren't always right.)
Of course the tablet won't make you better at drawing what's in your head, so don't expect it to. THAT takes years of practice drawing with any medium, tablet or no tablet.

I got it, Last Christmas... I dunno I just can't control my lines, it feels awkward and I don't know how to colour all to well.

Relax! Are you getting frustrated easily and tensing up?
As mentioned before, post a sketchbook thread, and just start doodling like crazy. Don't even aim to create a huge masterpiece, just draw. Draw squigglies and kittens and flowers and nothings. Then... go from there!

Knowing how to "color well" has nothing to do with the tablet - that takes years of practice, so patience. Post stuff here and ask for advice, you'll learn eventually. Start with simple stuff and work your way up.
Control might also take a long time if you've never really drawn digitally before - you're having to get used to drawing on one surface (your tablet) while looking at another (your screen), it is very weird and takes time to master.
But if your tablet feels really awkward, like I said, try playing with the settings, you might have it set to be too sensitive or not sensitive enough. Also try using it in different positions, if it's sitting too high or too low or at an awkward angle or something, it'll be uncomfortable and hard to use.

I'd initially written something more rude than this.
If you're not interested in posting your art for critique so we know what in the hell you're talking about, at least put the effort into this thread to try and fool us into thinking it's about some deep philisophical issue we've got to go through 3 pages to needlessly discuss.
Because right now all you've presented us with is "I has a sad just thought you should know".
And that's annoying. If you're not interested in actually showing us what you're talking about, please post in this thread next time instead of making a new thread.
