    Just get some cheap drawing pad for PC if you dont really have the money but yes the drawing pen/pad thingy for pc is reaaaally helpful and is a one must have for digital art in my opinion ..

    If you dont want to pay a lot of money on tablet, you can simply take a photo of a drawing and load on pc and after load in some program(in my case Photoshop). That picture you can use as a sketch, and using a pen tool you can make a digital art, there are tons of videos on youtube that can teach you the basics.

    I saw an app called Adobe Sketch which in my experience can be a good one to digitalize my art :3


    -_- if only my parents arent all strict and did not ground me. My allowance was soooo cut off.

    Well I prefer pencil, pen, and mouse.

    In order to understand digital art, one must understand traditional art first. One does not simply jump into digital art without a base to work from.

    I would recommend buying blue and red pencils for sketching, a black pen for tracing, a scanner for scanning, and Photoshop or Illustrator for making the art digital and filling in the colors. When sketching, I wouldn't worry too much about erasing the red and blue marks, because it's easy to remove them digitally.

    In Photoshop, it's simple to change the contrast of a sketch to make the image look digital and remove the red and blue colors, then work with layers for the colors using Photoshop's color blend mode (Multiply) so you don't paint over the black line and/or (Overlay) if you want to paint just the black line.

    In Illustrator, you can simply trace over your sketch to make your image look like vector art.

    My first drawing tablet was only $30, and it lasted for 4+ years.

    There are a lot of free programs out there for someone who wants to learn digital arts. The 2 I use most often are Paint(dot)NET and Medibang Paint Pro.

    Mouse user here! Its kinda hard to use at first but you'll get the hang of it. The pen tool in photoshop works wonders and is what I use in my professional work :)
