Thank you! I'm going to try to do at least one traditional sketch a day.

Your traditional is so beautiful and amazing! :D

Thank you so much! I used to only draw traditionally so I'm trying to get back into it!
on 29 January 2017 at 19:24:55 MST
You're very welcome! :D
It's great to see traditional in this age of digital...............it makes me happy to see people still do it! :)

I definitely have a huge amount of respect for people that still solely work in traditional mediums.
I would love to learn how to paint again. I guess I never stopped knowing I just have to build it back up!
I want my traditional and digital art to be equal so it's going to take some doing to get back to where I was!

I do, too.............it's what I grew up with. I used to be pretty good with acrylics, but after a lot of years of not doing them, I know how it feels to lose your touch with a medium. But my great love has always been inking things--I used to dream of becoming a comic book inker (those rarely exist anymore--even in comics now, they do most of the art digitally). I love my Faber-Castell ink pens......I go through my pens within months and am always replacing them! XD
I have tried doing digital, but I can't do linework on a tablet.............but I did learn to import my traditional inked art into a digital program, so I can color my traditional art digitally now. But I still love picking up some markers or colored pencils on occasion! :D

I use Faber-Castell pens too! I have a set of them I just picked up and they have worked wonders.
Inking was my big thing when I was younger too.
I can ink digitally but when I do it a certain way it looks super super super stiff I feel it takes away from my art. The other way is just..tedious and it isn't perfectly clean but it does look better.
I love sketching and just end up doing refined sketches most of the time haha.
I used to want to do comics too! I still do but I have finally accepted the fact that I wouldn't be able to pull off what I have in mind.

I love my Faber-Castell pens, they're the best things I ever discovered. At AnimeExpo in 2015, I also found a Japanese brush pen that I really love using for fur/hair......it's exactly like a real brush, but it's a pen (and I discovered that Hobby Lobby has them, too).
Sketching is so fun............you can even develop out your sketches as detailled as you want! :)
I have mild arthritis, so no matter how many stabilizers I put on the tablet, lines can never be straight for me. (It does affect coloring, too--some coloring is "out of the lines", just like in reality! chuckle) It drives me bonkers................so I found I can use my traditional lineart and that made me happier! XD
I totally get that. I'm...............extremely wordy with storytelling. I can't condense enough to do my own comic books, though I'm doing a short "4-panel-ish" comic right now, to try and do a comic. But I've inked comics for two of my friends and it was a real blast! :D

A lot of grace and rage in this, really powerfull!
on 29 January 2017 at 19:09:55 MST
Thank you! I was definitely getting a lot of emotion out when I was drawing this.
