Unhappy Drawing and Artwork Help?

So I've been drawing anime and stuff for ages and I seem to be getting pretty good at it the only problem is I can't figure out what to do to get my pictures to look more professional or what drawing or picture creating software to use to get really good professional pictures, I currently use photoshop 7.0 is there any other software or programs that would be better to use? also at the moment draw my pictures on paper and then scan them onto the computer and then colour them with PS7 since I'm not so greating at drawing on a graphics tablet, but the way I'm doing them now they take ages to do and I can never get them to look perfect like alot of the pictures I see online, is there another way I should be doing it? and should I learn to use the graphics tablet or will it not make any difference???
Please Help!!!

The best thing you can do is practice.

There truly isn't any magic software. My husband and I draw everything on paper then scan it in to color in Photoshop. I used Photoshop 4 for a long time, and now am on Photoshop 7. I still use a mouse to color. I have heard that if you can master the tablet then it can make the process easier....but have yet to do so myself.

You can see our work on the Artplaymix.com website.

If you love drawing then just keep at it! The more you work at it, the better you will become ^_^.
