For some reason I could never work a tablet. I'm just not made to function that way. lol
A mouse is the easiest for me.

Definitely a tablet! For me there was nothing worse than trying to draw with my mouse. I've seen some amazing pieces of art created that way, but it's just not for me. The tablet allows me to draw just like I would on a piece of paper. Even better, I'd say. There's no undo button in the real world, and you don't get nearly as many options and possibilities with your drawing as you do in a program like Paint Tool SAI. This is just my opinion, anyway. smile

Well, I work everyday using Ilustrator. I do prefer tablet... It's better to creating lines.

i don't use a tablet- i guess i ..finger paint? i use the touch pad on my laptop- well i did use it before the whole thing decided to commit suicide.

i plan on getting a tablet though, especially with my new comp and new art program. but i still don't know what would be best... ive been looking at medium sized intuos tablets.

I mainly just stick with my sketchbook but if I want any coloring, I resort to mousework. Traditional coloring doesn't come to me as easily as sketching. I've never worked with a tablet but I really want to. biggrin

Well coloring isn't entirely difficult with a mouse or mouse pad, but if it comes to outlines or line art - it sure is hell annoying. e.e

Both. I use the tablet more often because it doesn't cost me money to draw things digitally.
I use a tablet/ sketchbook.
Tablet/Sketchbook.
