First off, I apologize if there is already a thread on this topic. I am new to the forum and there may very well be a thread exactly the same as this. If so, lock it, delete it, do whatever you want, I sincerely apologize.

With that out of the way, I will get to the main point (which is pretty much evident from the title).

I recently starting drawing manga style, and I have only done work with a pencil so far. When I scan the image onto my computer, though, the colors come out very hard to see and it's kind of a pain in the neck to have to darken the lines in the drawing, let alone I don't have a new version of Photoshop to help me with that. I've been considering switching to tablet drawings. I already have a tablet (Bamboo,4x6) so I'd be set to go.

So, what do you think? Should I stick with the pencil and scanner, or go with the tablet?

Thanks for all responses, and once again I apologize if this has been done already.
