Hey everyone I was just wondering if you could help me out with a problem I'm having, whenever I go to colour something in photoshop I tend to just darken the pencil lines (I like preserving the energy of the sketch) but in an attempt to broaden my abilities I'd like to start using the brush tool to trace over my pencil lines or even draw straight into photoshop.

The problem is I'm clueless, I've looked up some tutorials but they all just seem to be step by steps or not exactly what I'm looking for :/ my lines always come out wobbly and when I'm finished it just looks flat, the lines don't join up and the weights look terrible, the whole thing is frankly awful.

So please if you have any advice, any tutorials or brush settings that might help out I would greatly appreciate your input

Thanks in advance
