I think I prefer the analog method you really get to feel your work come to life.  Per example my Hexus sketch if I used an art program I would have had it filled in seconds.  But because I used a pencil my fingers hurt afterwards.  You get to feel the wight of the character in your hands.  Cheers

Actually, you can :p Sure, you can't get the multiple layers/textures with traditional as you can with digital, but if you look at realism portraits and such done traditionally, they sometimes have much more detail than digital.

you can still get such pains while drawing digitally, allowing you to "feel the weight of the character" in the same way. It just depends on how much time you put in, not the method to which to do it in. When I do my own realism paintings, I get pains in my fingers as well.

However, I think what you are essentially getting at 8manx2 is that people will use digital art to make things faster/get paid/not appreciate what they are drawing, or on the contrary others will not appreciate that even though it was digital, it still took time and effort. That is why I value a true artist at someone able to draw well both digitally and traditionally, without using tricks with a pen or pencil.

That was a very astute and well thought out comment.  And yeah that was what I was going for.  But there is the another thing to consider.  An error in analog can cost you the pic.  Per example when using a strong color such as black in a oil painting one mistake and you either have to let it dry paint over it let that dry then paint over that. And every attempt to fix the painting will run the risk of further mistake covering up a part you didn't want covered.  or scrub the painting entirely.  So all that work can be lost in an instant.  Course the same thing can be said if a giant solar flare wipes every hard drive.  I guess there is no point in discussing it since both have validity.  Except I'm right. XD Cheers

I understand the pros and cons of both media. I mostly do trad, because I lack an easy way of producing digital art. For my it's easier to get things out on paper and pencil. I feel more comfortable and free with aimless doodles. That's me, tho.

I agree with you. I just feel more satisfied with my traditional art than i do with my digital art. (probably because i dont have a tablet though)

I agree to an extent. But what the digital lacks it makes up for in two important ways: it is trivial to reproduce digital art so more people get to see it as it was intended and, more importantly, its all I know how to do =)

I may have started something. And I think it's fantastic.  I mean look at this,  all I did was post my opinion and it blossomed in to a great discussion.  Including people who don't watch my channel, which mean it's spiraling out of my tiny range of influence.  So for all those who posted, and who will post thank you.  The highest achievement an society can have is the ability to freely discuss Ideas.  No jokes this time,  Cheers
