    Your favorite art medium?

    Put simply, what have you used and what do you like to use the most?

    I've mostly done pencils, a few days' worth of inking, and virtually no experience in painting. I don't like sculpting because I think it's too messy. For the moment, I'm in huge favor of mechanical pencils since they keep that super crisp edge. What about you guys?

    EVERYTHING
    I've used pencils, colored pencils, watercolor pencils, crayons, oil pastels, oil paint, watercolor paint, acrylic paint, ink, colored ink, copic markers, and clay for sculpting. and I love them all.
    I've used ketchup before too but I try not to think about that >_>

    My favorite used to be watercolors, but I've gotten so used to drawing digitally and using the undo button and layers for everything that I've forgotten how to use normal media.

    If I knew how to do watercolors I'd like them the most, haha, but I'm absolutely terrible at them. I always use too much or too little water, and when it dries everything's a different hue than what I wanted it to be... and I never take the time to figure out CG. D:

    Same here! But I like CG because of the convenience of layers, undo, and all that. I've used crayons, water color pencils, pencils and oil pastels, but I like working with pencils the most..

    I'm inept at using just about everything, but when it comes to digital, I prefer plain old drawing and painting programs. As for traditional mediums, I'd say graphite and watercolour are my fortes.

    A piece of printer paper, a white eraser, and a lead pencil using .7 lead.

    But that was before I discovered the magic of a tablet.
