    I really love traditional but I prefer Digital since I can do much more things :yesyes: and it's interesting since you can use every kind of brush without buying it :dance: :happydance:

    As I'm not a artist, I may write something silly, so be patient with me... Well, I like both, digital and traditional, I can't choose one.

    I like the tradicional, 'cause, I don't know, but it like transmit me a bigger sensation of something handmade. Something that a (wo)man really made his/her best to reach the final result. I'm not saying that I think that "digital artists" don't to their best, it is just my subconscious. I think I feel this way 'cause I'm pretty bad in almost every handwork I've ever tried in my entire life.

    But, I really enjoy digital arts, I think in the Pokémon fan community we've a lot of great digital artists (I'll not name any names, 'cause I could make unfairness with some great artists). I love how the artists can play with the colours, brightness and this kind of things. And also, digital arts allow myself to edit some arts without getting a rough result.

    I actually love various sorts of art whether they be traditional, digital, paintings, plushies, sculptures, or photography and cosplays. I try to use both styles though. :D I mostly do traditional because right now I can't find my tablet in all the boxes I still have packed with stuff since my move in late May.

    @May Oh it's okay i'm the same way. The Bamboo one was nice at first then I kept getting irritated at it because I would have to guess where I was drawing. I really want a tablet that I can see the picture right there on the screen and be able to draw right on the surface. :)

    it's pricier but cheaper than a Macbook Pro by about $1000 USD. Here's a link to the Microsoft website for it. the laptop swivels around to lay flat so you can draw on the screen and it says it comes with about as much if not more tech than a macbook. https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/devices/surface-book

    I suggest you to inform really well before buying one because if it don't have enought LPI it will be difficult to draw :yesyes: (for my old tablet I searched for 2-3 days before buying it -> I searched about the LPI, DPI and so on XDD)

    Digital art, since I excel badly at traditional art SO much, it's not even funny.
    I think handling yourself around pixels and optimising for the internet itself, is a challenge enough!

    I actually prefer traditional. First off, I don't have the correct "pen" or writing tool to make it easier. I am horrible at drawing with my finger.

    I started out with traditional, and I personally find it easier for me. :yesyes:
