I've decided to try some cartoon art with a tablet I have, but I seem to be having some problems...
For an example, I have my original scan and then my outline trace I did with a 4x3 Wacom using Gimp.
How do you make the line art better? My lines are all shaky and squiggly. I scanned the picture in at 300 dpi and thought that if I traced resized the picture to a lower screen resolution it would look better. I traced it at a really high resolution. (About 500%, Kind of following how Gabe does it with his ustream broadcasts.) but it looks really bad.
Another issue is that when I draw, my index finger keeps pressing the button on the side pen and I get a context menu that pops up when I'm trying to draw. That's annoying and I can't see any way of turning that off. I just make due
