Hi there! I use Photoshop for pretty much everything, recently updated to CS6 which is pretty sweet. For most of my cartooning career I was using a Wacom Bamboo tablet, which run for about 80 bucks I’d say, but a couple of months ago I finally sprung for a Cintiq 13HD, which is the kind with the screen. It makes a massive difference, but there’s no need to invest so much money until you’re positive that you’ll stick with it for the long haul.
Sometimes I do draw on paper if I feel like I’m in a rut. It can help remind you how fun drawing can be if you take the pressure off of yourself. When I make a comic on paper, I usually just scan it and then “ink” it in Photoshop.
Hope this was helpful and if you have anymore questions don’t hesitate to shoot me another message!
