it was atleast for me harder in the beginning to draw with computer, and i still do enjoy more the actual drawing process when drawing traditionally
and indeed, i have respect for those who are patient enough to draw with mouse xD
yes definitely it's more equal now i love to look both digital and traditional art, and you can get a very traditional-like look with computer too, i admire those who can paint like that digitally i don't know about the realism, i think it can be done very well digitally too, but this is a matter of taste ^^ i think there is a lot of traditional artists nowadays too, but for some reason it's a lot harder to get 'popular' here in dA with traditional art i think, unless it's something really unique, and overall i feel like this community focuses more on digital arts.
and it depends.. i think drawing digitally is harder when you do this kind of pieces when you have to get the lineart very clean and specific, i don't do that kind of work traditionally (though i imagine this could be similar to working with inks or thin markers?). but why i enjoy doing traditional more is because you have the 'feel of the material' if you know what i mean : DD
yes of course, i understand!
and you're right atleast for me one reason why i don't post my traditional art is because it doesn't give the same effect when you take a picture of it or scan it to the computer :/ and it also takes more time, i'm lazy :'DD
i'm sure too it's very personal what one finds easier to do ^^ i don't really write that much but i like to write poems sometimes and i would never write them with computer, it just isn't the same thing when you're putting you're feelings into them i think : D haha don't know if that made any sense!
