I recently just got a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet and I am trying to draw on illstrator using the brush tool. However, whenever I am in the motion of drawing I can't see what I'm drawing until I finish the stroke. I don't have this issue on Photoshop and I have seen videos where people on illustrator don't have this problem, yet I can't find the setting in preferences. How do I resolve this?

You should at least see a faint line.

With calligraphy brushes or bristle brushes you see the stroke.

 

Brushes in Illustrator work differently than Photoshop brushes, you can't compare them.

As Monika has said, you should see a faint dotted line when using brushes like charcoal. Illustrator cannot display certain brush strokes until the stroke is complete.

Switch to a calligraphy brush, you must be using one of the other type of grush such as an artbrush.
