Ah, then I think you are an excellent contender for use of the uber~cheap and super fantastic pencil and paper technique!
Seriously, I think it’s better to start out learning Traditional methods anyway ~ you will be better trained as an artist, in my opinion, if you start out using good old fashioned Traditional Art Materials such as pen, pencil, paper, paint, etc. Why not just buy a cheapie sketchbook and some drawing pencils, sharpener, and eraser, and practice drawing the good old~fashioned way? I really think it’s better! ~Particularly when you are starting out.
What do you think?
