Paper is always good for a cool drawing and same with the tablet! I have so much fun with both! I have more fun and creativity with paper, but it's so much easier to manipulate things digitally. X3 I really can't say which is more natural. I guess I would have to say paper! There's only one place where I can naturally draw digitally, but it has a lot of glitches, so I'm always wary of using it.
Drawing on traditional media feels more natural but I prefer doing 90% of my art digitally. I have a different kind of control on paper so when I can't get a sketch on my tablet I'll do it on paper and then scan it to the program.
THE ENTIRE DESK!!! (Teachers hated me) but I have no idea, I know I don't feel comfortable with tablets but I'm fine with paper or screens, I wish I could learn more on digital. But I have no idea where to start looking for one (if someone can recommend me one good for beginners that'd be really appreciated!).
My Wacom tablet feels more natural than it used to, and it's where I want to spend more of my creating-time, but I've probably still got a few thousand hours of practice to go before it edges out paper.
Haven't worked with a Cintiq yet, but I can definitely see the appeal, there.
I picked up drawing on my tablet fairly quickly. It's odd to say, but I actually feel better drawing on the tablet than with paper. It's not that it feels more natural, it's more like I feel more confident with my lines on a tablet, though I'm really not sure why.
Although I have fun drawing with a tablet, I feel more natural drawing on paper, as it's much easier for me to make sketches and such on paper. But for coloring, I overall feel better painting with a tablet. I really enjoy coloring traditionally, but I can't afford enough colors/tools to do anything very interesting. Also it's nice being able to undo/fix things so easily when drawing digitally, as well as having an unlimited color palette
Im drawing on an intous mostly all the time but im planning to buy a cintiq I saw on your tumblr that you are struggling with your cintiq how about now? Im afraid when i buy one i cant get used to it and all the money is wasted...
I used to have a tablet where I could draw on the screen (like cintiq but way cheaper) and I hated it. I love using paper because you can just feel the quality and all the different things you can draw with (e.g. pastels, paints, markers, pencils) are so much funnnn Tablets I'm just used to. And it's easy (coughctrl+zcough)
I used to love my tablet a lot more than I do now, I just love paper for its texture.. My tablet (Or even the nibs! Don't have chance to try more nibs) just don't give that satisfying texture you feel when you sketch on paper... Gotta love those realistic paper cuts.
For me it's tablet. I can never accomplish anything on paper. Always erasing lines and redraws drive me crazy on paper. On the tablet it's just two clicks or easy to adjust a line exactly how you want it. Paint tool sai curve tool is a life savor for me.
I'm better/more comfortable with drawing on paper, but only for sketching. If I'm going to paint or color something I drew, I'll usually transfer it from paper to a file in Paint Tool Sai so I can color it. Digital painting is a lot easier for me because hey, there's an undo button. You can't undo painting mistakes on paper, only try to fix them. That's the neat thing about digital coloring~
Paper, though I'm fairly comfortable with my tablet. Like, I picked up how to use it fairly fast. I see a lot of people saying it's hard or difficult to get used to looking at the screen when you draw and not your hand but, I never found that. I got the hang of it pretty fast.
