    Question about Working with Tablets

    Hi.

    I want to get more serious about studying art, but I want to do it right. I was wondering, for me it would be much faster to practice sketching on a tablet than on paper and pen (which later I'd have to scan, etc). But I was wondering if, at the beginning of developing skills, would this affect my ability to switch to traditional mediums?

    Is it better to start traditional and when I feel comfortable, go into digital? Or does this not matter at all since it's the same thing?

    I have a Graphire3, though I don't know if that makes any difference.

    Thanks.

    I would definitely recommend starting traditional. In fact, even if I'm already at ease with the process of digital painting, I still prefer creating my linearts in pencil and paper and then scanning them. You have to understand that for the most part, digital illustration is easier when you're painting as opposed to drawing, and yes, there's a difference between the two.

    Have I created works purely digital? Yes. Would I recommend it to people who are starting out? No. Your proficiency in the traditional medium will help immensely for when you do decide to go digital.

    Learn to draw traditionally before heading into digital. It makes things much easier when you paint digital. Digital Art is just technical stuff really.

    You can do both but I advise focusing on more traditional.

    Thanks! I'll stick to traditional until I get more comfortable.
