I use a pencil for drawing, but I do prefer 3D modeling (problem is, that takes along time to get it detailed)

You forgot to add Graphics tablets which is what I use for 2D drawing and 3D sculpting, painting, etc.

As far as I'm concerned, there is simply no better method / tool for drawing, writing, and painting on a computer.

I sometimes use paper and pencil, but most of the time I use a computer and a graphics tablet.
It's a lot easier, at least for me :) You should get one Lilith; it might be easier :D

I put tablet, for most of my furry art I do now.

I still do drawn stuff on paper, but am usually too lazy to scan it in, and I do 3D modeling with a mouse.

Pixel art I do with combined mouse & tablet.

I use a graphics tablet, but I far prefer traditional materials, oil pastels would be my favourite to use and I'm quite handy with pen sketches.

I use a graphics tablet OR traditional pencil and paper which I'll scan in for coloring.

Iíd say you need about $250 for a decent graphics tablet, but there are many cheaper ones, especially if you donít mind getting a refurbished graphics tablet.

Here is what they have at TigerDirect (Link)

I use an Adesso CyberTablet 12000, about five years old now and it still works great, though I have heard horror stories from some other people,
It cost about $200 back then, and I managed to hit a sale so I got mine for $150.

I use traditional pencil/paper then scan them in and make fixes to them on the computer. I would like to try a tablet

I dont really believe I've developed a favorite method yet.  I like the pencil and scan method for the effect it gives, but use paint.net and mouse for the serious stuff.  My goal is to find a medium that works and learn to use it to its maximum potential.

Pencil and paper (and pen) primarily. I find it easiest because I can clip the paper to my clipboard and then rotate it any way I need to. That way it's more comfortable and I can lean over it if I need to. It's kinda hard to lean over a computer screen to get a different angle.

When I do digital art, I use a mouse because that's all I've got. A tablet (graphics tablet, not like an iPad tablet) would make things easier (at least that's my hypothesis), but I don't have one nor plans to buy one any time soon.
But usually the extent of my digital editing is just to tweak the color balance/contrast/gamma levels and re-size/crop the image.
