    I use my 2012 Kindle Fire with Medibang Paint and my tool of choice is my finger. I used to have a stylus but I lost it and it got my screen dirty anyway, haha.

    Goes to show you don't need anything fancy!

    I use my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (I really need an upgrade orz), Medibang Paint and a stylus. I have a lot of respect for people who can draw well with just their finger haha.

    I don't have a tablet so I'm forced to use my phone. The app I use is called ibisPaint X. I used to use a stylus all the time, but I've gotten lazy and not just use my finger. :sweat:

    Device: Windows 7 Desktop
    Input: A wired mouse

    A fairly simple setup, all said. Since my main machine is a desktop, of course I'll be using a mouse for everything. I've never been one to use 'touch' devices (mousepads, screens, etc.) as I find them very unwieldy for me to use, since they aren't really given to pixel-precise movement.

    I have a Wacom Intuos tablet for drawing (with a stylus) however I mostly use the mouse for edits other than drawing. I used to use only Photoshop but now that I’ve discovered FireAlpaca and its stabilizer, I draw almost only with it.

    Also congrats for making the 888th thread in this section!

    This very lovely drawing tablet =) And Fire Alpaca for drawing (it's free for both Windows and Mac!). It's like Mac's version of Paint Tool SAI, which I dearly miss. Photoshop isn't that great for the type of style I prefer since its lines can't be made as sharp regardless of what settings are used. If only pen pressure worked on SAI for Mac, then I'd definitely use it again... </3

    I basically use a Huion tablet (it's under a different name but it's legit the same thing) and Clip Studio Paint as my program! I used to use Medibang but my lines were pretty shakey and bad there because I didn't know about stabilization lmao. The lines on Clip Studio are so clean and nice I actually want to yell ack.

    Random fact about this all, but when I first got my tablet the pen pressure was there, it wasn't working on the programs I got however. So we had to buy an entire new computer (or at least computer tower thing) for it to work. My family spoils me too much ;w;

    Never realized you replied until I came back to this thread today, aha.

    It might be because I have a bigger screen I can stabilize my lines better (I have no idea how big my screen is but it's at least eleven inches tall? I do everything in portrait mode for reference)? Also Medibang has a stabilization feature which helps with smoothing out the lines: it's not much compared to the desktop version or other programs, but it helps! Also just practice with stroking lines >.>

    I have a drawing tablet and I mostly use Sai. Sometimes I'll use Paint.NET to do some editing after I've finished a drawing on Sai, depending on the type of picture.
