13 April 2015 • For the past couple of years I have been sketching much more. I use traditional drawing tools because they diversify the creative process and make it more fun. That way I don't have to sit in front of the computer to do the sketching and can enjoy the reliability and simplicity of traditional tools - all I need is something to draw with and paper. Such tools almost always work and are easy to get started with. So sketching is great for getting the ideas flowing. Traditional tools change very little, which encourages their use and makes it a safe investment of time and effort to learn how to use them. Thus traditional drawing tools quickly gained my trust, something which digital tools are lacking.

I find the digital art tools less trustworthy because they change a lot. Any functionality can change with an update - ending up working in a different way or producing a somewhat different result. User interface changes and so does the location of buttons or their names. Sometimes useful functionality disappears. I'm not against change, but change happening too frequently gets tiresome and discouraging - especially after many years of using multiple art programs. Thus digital art tools lost some of the appeal they used to have for me. I continue to use them because of their many advantages, but their use is now done with some reservation.

I have been creating digital pictures for over 22 years, so for me traditional sketching is an interesting way of creative expression that is exciting and stimulating. I use pencils, inks, crayons, colored pencils and any paper that is not too thin or too rough. Here are two abstract crayon sketches I did recently.
