I used to have the same problem, and sometimes I still do, rather than compulsively hit the undo in hopes of closing the line or hitting the edge at the right point, I settled for a different workflow, let me elaborate, maybe some of it will help you:
This is my current hardware setup:
Traded down from an Intuos to an old bamboo capture with the wireless option. I love working from coffeeshops and carry it all in my back, so cheap and light, I got a dedicated portable scanner, but you can make do with your camera phone, + last generations macbook air.
Almost all work starts with a hand drawn sketch on paper I immediately scan, they are sometimes rougher than I would like and when working for clients or in a group I always polish those, but if the main sketch is digital and no one else will see it, a fast sketch that captures the idea is the goal.
Once into the computer, I use mostly Manga studio + photoshop.
- In Manga studio I trace over the hand drawn sketch and correct the perspective and details, there are rulers guides of all shapes ( like paths on steroids in photoshop) and you can edit them.
- Then I Ink on top, I like a mostly dead weight pen for my line work, but you can also do something more organic with a lot of weight changes if that's your thing:
-I then render on Manga studio and polish in photoshop...
