One, draw a design on paper and then scan it into the computer and open it in Illustrator. Then use different tools to trace your design. Or,
Two, get one of those touch thing's where you use a pen on a touch screen that is connected to the computer and it transfers your movement onto the computer. That way you can use the pencil tool to design your design.
If you have any other alternatives please post them, if not please give feedback. Thanks.

In my opinion, Wacom tablets are the way to go - you can find used ones pretty cheap and they don't really get phased out. I'm still using a 6x8 Wacom Intuos2 that I got in 2002. I do all of my "blue lines" in Illustrator on one layer, then make a new layer on top and redraw as finished.

I have been using my bamboo wacom tablet for at least 3+ years now. But I've noticed for me that it's easier to hand draw it and then trace it in illustrator. My tablet is mainly used as a super mouse pad.
Yeah, I don't think I'd use anything "less" than an Intuos - I've used a Wacom Graphire a few times and it doesn't have the sensitivity that the Intuos does.
Also - the Intuos's drawing surface has a little more "tooth" than the Bamoo or graphire, so it feels a little more natural. When I did have to use the Graphire, I taped a piece of cardstock over the drawing area so that it had a little more texture/catch.
I'm a full-time illustrator/designer and I haven't touched a mouse in 10+ years.

For example; if I draw a horse, a very detailed horse using this tablet, is that drawing in illustrator or do I import the drawing, where is the drawing that I have done on the tablet? Does the drawing have to be redrawn in illustrator or photoshop?
