I can draw fantastically (if i do say so myself) on paper, but on a tablet, its sooo different. You need to pick your medium first. If you want to be a digital artist you really NEED a tablet of some sort. Don't cheap out here.
When buying a tablet, keep in mind, you are pushing plastic against plastic. that isnt the same feeling of frictions and control that you get from pencil on paper. i'd advise to look for a tablet that has a slight texture to its surface. from there, its just a matter of practicing with the tools. 50% of drawing is understanding your tools. if you hand a digital artist some oil paint and canvas, they will fuck it up. Keep that in mind, and don't get discouraged.
