    Traditional art, absolutely. I am not sure why. Maybe I'm just too - well ... traditional!
    What about yourself? What do you thiink?

      I am a traditional artist but I have worked with digital art before I love the natural flow that traditional gives.

    I think NILSOMUDRO was right. I think Traditional art is better then Digital art.

    I do like both, but digital art has a lot more freedom and the possibilities are endless.

    Hi I prefer traditional art Vs Digital art and the reason is simple: I think that when you are able to make a good piece of art with your hands feeling the media and controlling it you produce something that is a result of your real talent and skills.
    On the contrary when you do the same thing using a digital graphic device it becomes more a technical action with the possibility to erase and correct mistakes as much as you want. To me in this case it is easier to create a piece of art but how much soul does it have?

      Hi Luciano
      Interesting thought. But is a good piece of art qualified solely by technique? I'll encourage you to read my hub "What are the arts" where I discuss the criteria for good and bad art. It could be quite intersting to hear your opinion

    Creating digital art has some advantages like not needing to buy materials and ease of use.   But it can also suffer from those advantages like needing an exterior energy scource.   In the end I think the most basic traditional arts like drawing trumps digital because all you need is a pencil and a scrap of paper or a lump of clay and maybe a candle.

    As an artist, I would have to say traditional because I love working with my hands.  If I can morph it using my fingers, I feel as though I accomplished a lot more than clicking on a mouse and watching it on a screen.  Plus I think there is more of a media in traditional art.  You have much more of a variety (painting, sculpting, drawing, jewelry making, mixed, etc) than whatever you can make on a computer, since that's only one media.
