Outlines

I'm just wondering how to keep a steady hand when making outlines for cartoons and such. I mean, I don't make it all wobbly and crocked all over, there are just some parts of my art that bug the hell out of me. I know I shouldn't expect my lines to be perfect but it's just been bugging me for a while and I want to find out how I can fix that.

draw from your elbow, not your wrist, and just practice circles over and over again

I hold my drawing hand with my free hand to steady my lines. It makes some really neat lines, especially in detailed work.

Practice using quicker and smoother strokes? Do you use a finepoint pen?

Yeah, I use a finepoint.

I don't often use a pen, but when I do, I sometimes go over the lines again to make them a bit thicker, vary the strokes and smooth out any bumps if you know what I mean.
