Digital Vs Traditional by sanguisGelidus Digital Vs Traditional by sanguisGelidus
(I didn't know which category to put it into, so I just took wallpaper ^^ You can download it if you want! :D)

I wanted to make something like this for a very long time! :D This is a comparison of my digital style vs my traditional style.. It is not exactly the same motif, but it's both mermaid realted and they have similar color schemes. I think it is kinda interesting, that my traditional style is much more abstract, while my digital one is rather realistic. ^^

I know, it's hard to compare, as they are really different, but which one do you prefer? My digital or my traditional style? (I wont be sad or disappointed, no matter which one you chose! :D)

It would be really cool, if you did someting like this as well: comparing your digital style to your traditional. Best would be, if you campared two similar pieces. You could even redraw a traditional painting in digital style or vice versa. :) If you come to make such a comparison piece, please put a link in the comments under this painting, because I wanna see it and probably give you a favs# and comment! (Maybe I will even feature the most interesting ones!)

-- Favs and comments are highly appreciated! :heart: --

I definatly like your tradisional better, that's because I really don't like the digital one its not that pretty, I like digital and I think you could if you worked on it make the other one in digital!!

I definitely prefer the traditional one! The blues and red contrast much more, and I love all of the intricate white pen work you have done. I feel like it is much more interesting to look at :D

They both are amazing but I like the style of the digital one more...

I always wonder about the pros and cons of digital v. traditional work. Doesn't help that I'm biased because all of the work I do is traditional! I try to do digital work but it hurts my eyes and I just don't get how comfortable everyone else is with the drawing pad and all of that.

You do both well!
