Do you prefer drawing digitally or physically?

I do both. Sometimes it's easier to draw on paper. There'a lot less setup involved, and usually have better control of my lines. When I draw digitally, I'm usually just messing around. But I do like how my lines usually come out looking more clean than any pen and paper. 

Plus, I don't own a scanner, so when it comes to sharing my pen/paper drawings they just lose a lot of quality when translated digitally. Drawing digitally gives the illusion that I'm better than I actually am. I found my old pen tablet recently, and this seems to still hold true.

I've only recently started to draw physically, but I think I already prefer it over drawing on my computer with current materials. 

i prefer digitally, digital drawing is sooooo 100x easier for me compared to physical/traditional drawing's, mainly couse digital lets you do whole ctrl+z undo command and ctrl+shift+z mainly redo command 

also i can actually color digital works, i cant color my physical works, unless its black/white only, and also when i also erase a portion using an eraser, smudges are noticeable which adds -10 to charm stats of my drawing which is ughish

I prefer digital, less garbage scattered everywhere at the end of the night and I don't have to track down various pens I need or run out materials in general.  It's nice.  But I must say physical has it's perks too.  It's been so long since I've drawn that way though that I bet I am absolutely awful at it.  (not that I'm good at digital either.)

I don't know which one I prefer really. Until this year, I have only drawn traditionally and I really like the crispness of the lines I can pull on paper. I really like digital art as well though because it does look cleaner as a whole in my point of view/drawing style. The color palette in digital is also amazing -- I can mix my traditional media, but on the computer, it is much easier to play around with different options. The only thing I have to complain about though is my monitor, which is my own personal issue. My monitor tends to show warmer colors so when I export my work and view it on another computer or my phone, the colors are colder than I originally thought.

It's hard for me to give a definitive answer on which I prefer. I have much less experience with digital, but I find that the more I work in digital, the easier it seems to find a cleaner workflow. I still love using graphite and color pencils to work with, but I am still in the middle on this one.

For me I like both for different reasons. I think digital is easier as I am one of those that mastered drawing with a mouse early on. Though it is also easier to edit quickly on the computer vs on paper. Though drawing on paper allows for a finer degree of control as long as you have a steady hand.

Although I like both, I prefer physically sketching and doodling. I spent so much time learning my style in art school. It was a bit scary to venture into digital art. All the products and programs and other such doohickies! One day, I got a digital drawing pen and used the software it came with. Super fun. Maybe with more practice, I can do more than just doodle things. >.<

Digitally for sure. I just have a small Wacom Intuos, but I have access to much more materials for free on my pc and have zoom and bucket and all that stuff. And infinite paper without having to look for it lol

I never thought about materials being a barrier to art, but when you put it that way... yea! It makes sense why not use digital medium in a way to save on costs and be more convenient 😍

I love drawing physically and then making edits on the computer. HOWEVER, I used my friends ipad pro and I must say....I really want one. Its so natural. He uses procreate. 

I hope to get the same natural fluidity I have drawing by hand someday replicated on my tablet. 

Currently I use a Huion tablet with Krita. I would love to draw/see on screen though :/ its still to unnatural for me. 

I feel more creative with a pencil and paper - like reading a physical book over an ebook.

I prefer traditional because it feels more chill, will drawing digital feels more like work.

( I also feel more pressure to draw something "good" when i do it digitally. )

Quite witty I can respect that, and very good drawing by the way.
