To all artists out there what method of drawing do you prefer?
Do you like drawing Traditional art or Digital art? (Maybe a little mix of both?) Please tell me as i would like to know.

As for me, I'm terrible at digital art, just awful..
I tried drawing with a tablet and lets say it didn't work out to well at all. x'3

But i do loooourv, love my markers and pencils!! So i like Traditional over digital.
Everything you say or do has ripple effects....
Be the change you want to see in the world.

I'm enthralled by the sharpness IE clarity of digital art.

Nit that I'm any good at either kind at the moment. Will be working on it for a while yet.

I've always preferred using a pencil. I have better control with creating different tones than with a tablet and program.

I prefer traditional because of how easy you can make things work, you can increase or decrease things with more subtlety than that of a computer, however, the precision that the computer provides for finished artwork is amazing. There is a trade-off somewhere between the two, but you need years more practice. Thankfully, because people love to do traditional work heaps, lots of research has gone into making a tablet that works much like you'd use a normal pad and pencil.
