Hey all, just a quicky update.

As some of you may know, I have been in some conflicting parallels about wanting to try to go between either traditional methods of art to digital. I am in confliction with them because I honestly find both strenghts and weaknesses with both methods.

Traditional as in with markers or outlining and inking pictures before scanning them in as with these;

Happy Easter 2015 by duraganCarny in markers by duraganLove behind a waterfall by duragan

Pros = Faster to produce, more diverse than digital, always retain a physical copy of the piece through development.
Cons = Mistakes are noticible, hard to undo errors without careful digital re editing.

Digital as in working straight from the computer as with these;

COM Keyframe is yet another pretty pony by duraganBlimpy Fruits by duraganLong awaited vengence by duragan

Pros = Neater line work, live streams can show development from beginning to end, easier alterations.
Cons = Longer and slower method, some conflict with detail, any errors or internal problems could cause all data lost.

I want to try and be as diverse as possible in creating content and so I ask a question that I believe will be able to help out with both problems in the long run: Should I just charge one segment for traditional work and one for the digital even knowing the possible pros and cons that could come with them? Or should I think of another method?

What do YOU personally think I should try?
  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: Youtube Vids.
  • Reading: My journal?
  • Watching: ... again, my journal?

Answer honestly, who between them in this pic is prettier? duragan.deviantart.com/art/Que…
