I love working NOT on the computer (exclusively, anyway)
examples of successful/notable contemporary artists who aren't /entirely/ digital?
or discuss about it?
personally i just love the feeling of pen on paper, marker on paper, etc. even if I have to go fix it or make it better digitally I don't ever want to let go of that beauty.

sorry i was being an asshole hungry for attention
ok i realize i'm making it sound like one is better than the other. that's not what i want.
it seems like there's so many opportunities for digital artists and none for people who like to work with pen/marker/etc. I don't know where to find likeminded people or a support group. I would like to find people who are likeminded or learn about opportunities that I can work with others on pen and paper.
how should i word it better?
1st off, as long as it was a geinuine grammatical mistake, this guy>>2358837 is just being a dick. IF you did do it on purpose, well, you made your peace there.
2ndly, if your wanting to become a commerical artist, it could be more difficult. Im not a commerical artist myself, so take this with a pound of salt, but i would think that as long as your making quality work at a good pace, and you scan it into your computer at a good quality, it shouldn't really matter how you did it.
It would probably be very diffiuclt if your client wanted you to alter certain aspects of the picture (shading, colors, ect.).And you have to account for physical art supplies used; whilst in digital art you have inifinite paint, graphite, charcoal, canvases, ect.
However, if you want to try and become of a patreon artist (which has mixed results) its very possible. I know of this one artist who makes a webcomic called "Lets Speak English!"
Its really funny, and it is all done traditonally with ink and paper. Maybe you could email her and see what she exactly feels about being a traditional artist in the modern era.
She isn't an artist by trade, but she makes a nice webcomic.
I've been drawing on and off for nearly thirty years, so all of my experience and growth has been on physical media. When I was like four, I drew ant-people, three circles for the body, stick limbs, and circles for eyes. Now, my work can be mistaken for attempting to portray human figures.
I am considering buying a tablet to practice digital art.
depends on what kind of art you wanna do... if youre like me and your goal is fine art to be exhibited and sold in galleries etc that is still 100% dominated by traditional mediums (as it should be)
Why not combine?
Personally, I like drawing a lot more traditionally, but coloring is just so much easier with better results digitally.
