My boyfriend's D&D character! I'm not used to this kind of a color scheme, but I think it turned out quite good nonetheless. He's supposed to have lost a chunk of one antler in some kind of an altercation.

Pretty cool concept; I love D&D. Old edition.
Is this on paper?

I've actually never played... this'll be my 'first' campaign, though I have done Pathfinder before and loved it a whole lot.
Yeah I'm a traditional artist. Everyone tells me I should move on to digital, but that just makes me want to double down and do more traditional. >.>

I never had the option to do anything but traditional before buying my Wacom tablet. Digital is very nice, fast and fun, but...
... everything I read from other artists (really-really good artists) is that having a solid strong core in traditional skills is very important. Pre-planning layouts, the importance of a curve, making sure it's perfect before committing to paper... those skills separate someone with artistic talent from a trained artist.
Was asking about the paper since I can see where the colour has absorbed into the material a little. Otherwise it would have been a very interesting digital shading technique!
Maybe we'll see some more of your pics in the future. Keep drawing, 'kay? <3

I also like his expression and posture, doing this normal routine type thing, possibly before heading out into a risky area.

Which do you prefer, though? Digital seems like it's easier because you can erase as many times as you need to, but I think I'd feel too much like I was cheating. Lol. I've definitely heard some good arguments for going into digital art, but there's something very pleasurable about that tactile feel of the paper, of the way ink flows from a pen...
And yeah I'm a little messy when it comes to coloring, sometimes I forget to allow for bleed or I get a little too excited scribbling in a big area :')

re: the pose, I sat down to plan this and asked myself what a monk really does outside of smacking things and meditating... maybe he's wrapping up ~meditatively~.

Now THAT is a very difficult question, and it shouldn't be.

Real drawing on paper... you can see where your pen point is, have better control of the tip. Yes, if you make a mistake, it's pretty much permanent, but the finished product can last your lifetime. I have a huge collection of scraps and doodles I used to make. Only a handful of them I feel any sense of pride in, but... they carry nostalgia, a sense of realness. I love my hand-drawn doodles. I've even done full-coloured pictures.

I love drawing with a tablet. Separating the layout into layers, painting is smooth as butter, shading is fun, and easily fixed.
You can 'cheat' to a point, and, I've had to stop and get out of that trap. Cloning previous drawings doesn't help you learn consistency: repetition does. I am by far NOT a trained artist, but I do enjoy it. Digital is really fun and cool.

I still doodle at work on long lunch breaks. My paper napkin drawings are even coveted by other co-workers and snatched up as soon as they can grab them. Trying to figure out Digitigrade legs that match my characters, things like that. Facial expressions, concepts... Even if you convert to digital as your main tool, you still end up drawing with pens and pencil.

Gonna say though. I enjoy painting digitally like Bob Ross for backgrounds. Little dabs of colour with faded brushes. Doesn't cost me a thing other than time, and no clean-up. The painting part is fun, since you don't have to worry about wiggly lines or proportional differences.

Doodling I love pencil.
Comic strip creation digital.
Painting, colouring and shading is digital. Guess I'm a sucker for the tablet, but you never abandon your origins completely.
Can't really pick a favourite. Just don't be afraid to use other mediums, just to see what effects you get out of them. <3
