Do you prefer inking lineart on the computer (tablet/mouse) or with an actual pen (pigment/tachibana/ink/ballpoint etc)? Explain, if you want, why you prefer it that way.

Great Mizuti uses real pens, because she cannot do anything computer-based except type
I tend to use actual pens but I just downloaded paint shop pro 9, so no it will be whatever floats my boat.

i get easliy cofused when on computer so i draw in the wrong my scanner isnt good so it doesnt show up my light pencil markings
oddly enough most ppl like pens. i dunno. com's are more practical for me. i like pens, but they're a bit stressful. they give nice effects tho.

My pigments or ballpoint. I feel I have more control over them. :D
But I will occasionally use my tablet to ink if that's what I feel like. Or if I'm lazy. :shrug:
I like using actual pens [sakura microns preferably]. I feel like I have more control when doing lineart, but sometimes there's just too much ink in the pen x_x; ... I'm not that well adjusted to my tablet. To me... the tablet doesn't have that good, homey feel that actual pens have ^^; ..

I usually prefer to use micron or whatever other ink pens I have with me at the time, but I like to ink digitally at times too, because it's a much softer line and it's easier to not smudge or to keep the image black and white.. but I feel like I have more control over an actual pen, so I prefer those, even if I do make more mistakes with it than I'd like xD
