I've been trying to practice with this tablet, but whenever I sketch something in gimpshop and go over it with a heavier line, it looks like a crappy trace. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Halp?

Gimp hasn't got pressure sensetivity. It also depends on what tablet you have and if it even has Pen Pressure available. I'd suggest Photoshop. You can get it for free from here https[://]docs[.]google[.]com/document/d/1woD1x4CzokSxRsTaNU4K0nH7n0GAUSkXmwyfWA jLXu0/preview?sle=true&pli=1 (remove the brackets)

If you want to get a really really smooth line, (without vectoring) download SAI and try using the stabilizers. If not, try using a brush with a lower opacity and go over the lines a couple of times. And remember to always zoom in when you're doing a specific line. Then just practice, practice, and practice some more and you'll be able to make it smooth.

long, quick, confident strokes. Control +z is your best friend when outlining. I'll go over the same stroke numerous times before I'm happy with it. Sai has a pen stabilizer which a lot of people like, but if you want it perfect line the pen tool/vectors are the way to go.

I had the same problem when I started. It's about control of your hand, practice is the key there. The more you do it, the better it will get over time. Since you just got the tablet, it's only natural to not be used to it. Give it time.
