A common technique for people with cheaper tablets (I have to admit, I never used a Bamboo, but I own two Cintiqs which are of splendid quality, so Wacom does have their standards) is drawing a sketch, either on paper (and scan) or digitally and basically redoing the outlines with the so called "Pen tool". It guarantees straight outlines (less "edgy") and variable thickness, at the expense of some bonus work.
It's especially good for beginner, or people who have trouble drawing long and straight lines, or generally lazy people since drawing outlines takes a lot of practice (Not implying you are either). It's still a good tool for reworking things later, or when you are just straight out too tired to draw proper lines and curves.
To use some Alteil Fanart contest examples, drawing the outlines thinner can make them less prominent, and allow to fade more naturally into shadowing, much like the winner which got recently made into a japanese Alteil card
However, drawing thick outlines can also be beneficial if you make clever use of them through things like dynamics and movement, much like Angel B's favourite card.
It all boils down to how clean you can make them, which is a matter of experience so it should come naturally after a while.
