Use less pressure on the pen...  G-pens are meant to be flexible so the harder you press on the paper the thicker the lines...  If your lines are still thick then you're probably going way too slow

Use it backwards XD apparently some mangaka draw entirely with their pens backwards. sideways makes it a little thinner as well :D
It does kind of help :3 But I always thought the G-pen was meant for thicker lines? At least, it's meant to get lots of variation in the lines? O.o I'm not sure
