I LOVE to Draw in paper...i simply cant draw with the Wacom XD. Though if i have no computer and i must use colors, then i prefer the Airbrush.

I've had rather attrocious outcomes with acrylics, never tried oils and had moderate success with watercolor. Still a fan of black and white though, something with a bit more control than i've been able to find with for me its:

Grahpite (the top two switch)
Ink! Either ballpoint pen or india ink
Color Pencil
Marker (not good at them, but fun)
Oil Pastel

I'll learn to paint some day...
Iron rusts from disuse, stagnant water loses its purity, and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigors of the mind.

- pencils
- tempera
- oils (they dry very long though and sometimes i'm very impatient )
- my blood on a sharpened stick -> LOL a joke
Don't tell me what I can't do!

in class i do some decent doodles in pen. But at home i likey Ebony pencil, prisma color pencils, chavant clay, i just got working with oils and it loads better for me then acrylics.

That's about it. The computer would be my best.

This "What is your favorite..." stuff is so lame

For those of you who have children, quick! Which one's your favorite?

What is your favorite traditional art medium?

Okay - I'll start. I tend to favor acrylic. I like it's durability and drying time to do glazes and layers of colors.

runner up: Super sculpey.

The next challenge: oil. I've screwed around enough with it in the past to make some really big messes but have a new project to see what I can do now.

Anybody else got some unplugged favorites?

Charcoal pencils, lead pencils, rollerball pens and acrylic. Working on using oil paints, but I hate the fact it dries so slowly. Acrylic dries too quickly, though. Maybe someday someone will create a happy middle... a "just right".

Don't you mean happy medium? Har har!

You may want to check out Golden's Acrylic Glazing Liquid. I've used it a little and it slows down the drying time enough to blend it like oil.

Oils for large work, this setup for example (5 hours into my art exam 2 weeks ago)...

But i only do that at college/in an art studio... at home its acrylic or watercouor, though to be honest, its mostly sketching with mechanical pencil/ball point pen, or the occasional pen and ink

by the way, this is that painting finished...
