I bought a Wacom Bamboo tablet as a way of easing myself into the world of digital illustration. I find the "feedback mismatch" issue (sorry, couldn't find the proper technical name for this) a bit jarring.
The "feedback mismatch" issue is as follows. While drawing on the tablet, you look at the screen to see what you are drawing, but you have to guide your hand on the tablet in order to draw correctly. This is not the case while drawing on paper because both the drawing and the verification happens at the same location, i.e., you're looking at the paper as you guide your hand on the paper itself. As a result, I can draw lines and circles on paper quite well, but everything comes out malformed while drawing on the tablet looking at the screen.
Is there a proper technique that I am missing that will overcome this problem? For example, should I orient the tablet and myself in relation to the tablet in a certain way? Or is this just a matter of practice?
I have seen many videos that guide on issues like drawing from the shoulders instead of wrists, how to hold the digital pen, etc. But so far I have found none that addresses the "feedback mismatch" problem.
