By crappy, I mean not smooth. If I use the brush tool with my tablet, it gets kinda... "jagged"? I guess? I know its probably due to an unsteady hand, but I'm not sure if I can correct this. I can control a regular pen or pencil just fine on paper, but the tablet just feels less natural to me.
If you are using flash there is a smooth tool, every flash animator uses it. I can't remember the shortcut because its been a while. There is smooth and straighten, find out the shortcut for smooth and use it until you're satisfied. If you over-use it colors and stuff can mess up, like disappear and stuff. I haven't used flash for a few years so maybe there are some changes but probably for the better rather than the worse.
Using pencil for outlines makes it massively easier to color in your animation. Also, using transform on colored objects helps animate stuff by hand like slamming doors and stuff to a really great effect, rather than using standard tweens.
Anyways, smooth is the answer you're looking for.
