Any drawing or painting into the PC

I can draw and paint anything on paper and I have been thinking into translating my art into web design. I would like to be able to draw and paint in any graphics software(Photoshop, Illustrator, coreldraw, etc). with tools other than the mouse and the scanner.  Is there any third party hardware to plug into the PC(not Mac) that will help me express myself as if I was drawing and painting in my canvas? if there is any, which software would go with it?

I appreciate your guidance regarding this

Thanks

I would recommend getting a graphics tablet as well.  If you are on a budget Adesso is the way to go.  Adesso has larger pens than wacom because the battery is located inside.  So if you want a tool that fits in your hand like a #2 pencil i'd go with wacom.

Choosing a tablet size depends on how you draw and the size of your monitor.  If you tend to take small strokes a smaller tablet would be fine.

Software:

Corel Painter:

Corel Painter Essentials: ( Probably better for someone learning to use the software.)

Using photoshop works well too. Tutrials:

I use an Aiptek 8000U Pro tablet (http://www.aiptek.com/ - click on PC Tablets), and am very happy with it. I think it may be the same as the Adesso (the images look the same) but cheaper.

I havent heard much about those.  How many degrees of pressure do they have?

512 levels. The photos of the 6 X 8 Adesso tablet look identical, they are probably made by the same manufacturer and branded differently.
