I go back and forth between several. I think at this point I'd just like a good tablet for drawing. But then sometimes I look at those Copic markers... hmm hmm

Cant say anything about Copic markers, but if you spend a few bucks on a good tablet it'll be worth it. Wouldn't want to miss mine.

Great for drawing, but I also use it for brainstorming. somehow I'm better with a pen than with a keyboard when writing down notes quickly. and I don't like to waste paper :D

I like traditional tools like a good pencil, chinese ink or watercolours.
I also use Photoshop but I'm not completely at ease with it yet..

I like traditional media - watercolours and ink.
and for digital art I use Paint Tool SAI and Manga Studio

I'm not sure which media I prefer though. Traditional is easier for me, probably because I'm more used to it. And I end up drawing in 'watercolour style' even digitally lol.

Traditional media for me: biro pens, or when I feel like colouring I use ink pens & markers.

I tried digital mediums/tablet/programs but can't get as good as I wanted so I ended up choosing to stick with the old ways: faster and better.

I'm very partial to Photoshop, since that's what I have. I've tried Krita and was intrigued by it, but I didn't feel like I was utilising its particular set of tools right. I have pretty much no experience with traditional media, and Krita feels like a hybrid of Corel Painter and Photoshop. I also really like Manga Studio, and it looks like I'm going to have to get the latest version sometime soon because from what I've seen it's awesome and my prior version is woefully outdated now.

I love SAI, and I try to do some things in Photoshop as well....I really want to try Mangastudio though, I've heard some good things about it.

I'm trying to get used to my bamboo tablet, but I find it kind of awkward

I prefer Photoshop, though it is as tedious as hell, but since I'm familiar with it since ages, guess I would still stick with it for the meantime.

Digitally, I prefer SAI and Photoshop using a tablet. Otherwise I prefer to sketch traditionally with a pencil.

I really like mix several medium
I often use watercolor in first and then I use colouring pencils to create texture or shine.

And sometimes I have to adjust with photoshop. Add eyes or mouth that I drew on other paper.

I'm used to use photoshop to mix different patterns also or create translucent.



:rolleyes:

I post one of my work on my blog if you are curious http://changewithfashion.jimdo.com/

I like to draw with watercolours or just with pencils. I don't have a tablet to draw so I just stick to the traditional medium [:

I really like to use colored pencils and watercolors traditionally. I use Manga Studio and a Turcom tablet (Which is awesome! Less than $100) :D
