I'm happy to say I grabbed a drawing tablet! I'm super impressed with it, too. The one I chose is a Huion H420 starter tablet kit from Amazon. I paid $30 (which is a great deal.) I used to have a Wacom tablet, but I've honestly gotta say that I like this one a lot better.
I'll be practicing digital art a lot this summer. I've already submitted my first digital drawing in over five years and I'm fairly proud!
