Hello,

I am a 2D and 3D artist working in the game industry.

I would recommend getting used to drawing on paper and also on a screen. When I am tackling very challenging lines, I draw on paper and transfer it to the 2D image by scanning into an image file and opening it in GIMP. Most of the time, I use my mouse to draw on the screen in GIMP. Eventually I want to get a drawing tablet to connect to my computer, but I have been getting by so far and making content for major production games and a simulation with my current methods.

Wacom drawing tablet is my goal by the end of the year so I can take it to the ultimate level and do very advanced 2D work. You might want to look at Zbrush, too, and see how you can interface a drawing tablet with the software. There are a bunch of other makes out there which might be in your price range and more comfortable for you.

Which software is best is purely a matter of preference.
