Maybe I need so zoom out more to make smoother shorter hand motions? using paint brush tool like 96ish hardness.

    Yea I have watched that, he makes pretty big strokes it seems, but they seem so clean and not wavering like mine, I wonder what the deal is. I should check to see if it shakes when the pen is just sitting still.

    Don't use Photoshop. Get Painter Sai for beautifully smooth lines.

    Use the Pen Tool in Illustrator

    It makes the most beautiful lines I've ever seen.

    How long have you been using your tablet?

    (BTW, I think this is a topic more suited to the Questions thread.)

    could be the size of your tablet/resolution of the image you're working on/flow setting

    This is not a technical problem with some box being unticked in photoshop. There is no "deal", or trick, or special flick of the wrist, or magic tool/program.

    Gabe has been inking PA 3 times a week for over a decade, in addition to all of his work outside the strip. His strokes are clean and confident, and yours are not, because he has been doing it a thousand times longer.

    Even if you are rocking the smallest Bamboo tablet on the market, 95% of this issue is practice.

    I kinda wanna say the opposite: zoom in and make longer, quicker strokes. Maybe try with your hand/wrist off the tablet?

    Definitely make quicker strokes, you can always use ctrl z to go one step back, or alt ctrl z to go back more steps.
    It's nothing about your tablet settings or photoshop brushes. Wobbly lines come from a hand that isn't confident enough most of the time.

    This is absolutely correct. Just like playing the piano or performing a triple backflip, there is no trick. Just practice.

    This is the answer.
