I love drawing, and I'm not bad at it. However, buying a tablet is so expensive... I once (7 years ago) bought a simple wacom tablet that hasn't a "screen" in it, just the touch pad. And it sucked, for I have to look up while drawing down (I can't draw like that). Then it was stolen. Oh dear.
What kind of gear do you use? Is it expensive? I love my pens and pencils, but I do envy the ability to just put colors and random tools with one or two clicks and not go through all that **** about digitizing the work, clean it, rotate it, etc.,etc.
