So basically, I draw everything with a mouse, line by line, starting from sketch, directly in the drawing program (I personally use PS4 and GIMP, though I don't think this matters) just as I would if I had a tablet. So yeah, it can be done, with a bit of practice, though it takes a toll on your wrist.

I also have some creative commons vector anime eyes here too (check my signature). It is pretty easy to adjust them and change the colors etc. Feel free to make requests if you have some.
My latest game:
BoPoMoFo Chinese for Babies, Toddlers and Children Android App
Creative Commons stuff:
100+ 360° photos of Japan,
Anime Eyes (Vectors)
The most high-profile artist I know who uses a mouse for most of their work is Adam Hughes, and this is only for rendering. He still scans in his artwork which is done traditionally (which is also my usual MO.)
I would still like to chime in that you should get a tablet if you plan on doing any digital art at all. I've heard many good things about Huion, which comes at a lower price point than a Wacom.

Mouse can be done, but drawing works better. If you're willing to invest and can afford the costs of a tablet. But don't get one of those tablets that allow you to sketch with a pen but expect you to look at the screen. Those things don't work intuitively, no matter what they might say in the advertisements. The only reason I can write with that junk is because I can write blindly, with drawing while watching the screen you'll need to invest a long time to convert any drawing skill you may have into drawing like that. Heck, I decided that my current mouse drawing skills would probably yield equal or better results than that junk, so it has been an unused and unrewarding dust-collector that I only use for the cell-shading which doesn't need accurate strokes.
Although, I guess the easiest way to draw would be to commission someone else to do it. If you're using mouse anyway and have the spending money, saving yourself the time and providing someone else a job would be mutually beneficial.
Want some CC sprites?
