Recently I installed DeluxePaint II on my DOS/Windows 98 machine, and I must say it's one impressive piece of software for something released in the late 1980s. I've read that many companies, including LucasArts, used this graphics editor to create graphics for their games.
Hence my question: how did people draw on their PCs in the late 80s and early 90s? I can't imagine anyone drawing with a mouse, really. Did they use light pens? Were other drawing devices, such as drawing tablets, already available 30-40 years ago? I tried to search for old DOS-compatible drawing tablets but couldn't find anything.
