I started skimming the description on this stamp and thought "Wow, this sounds just like something I'd say", then I saw the reference to me up at the top there. Hurr.
I'm flattered that you liked my yammering on the subject enough to use it that way! I have this stamp posted in my shout box. ^^
I have a tablet because I want to do digital art and I felt that having something that at least somewhat resembles a pencil and paper might make my life easier than using a mouse or whatever.
I prefer to draw with pencils and paper and I can actually draw quite well. I know I will not be a fabulous drawer right off the bat with a tablet, and truth be told my first attempts with it are all rubbish compared to my usual standards. But I am improving and slowly learning.
I just hate it when people assume that having a tablet will give them super-drawing-powers or something. Its not that easy! It takes effort and practice and you have to have some sort of skill in drawing to begin with if you want to produce something half-way decent on your first go!
My sister borrowed my tablet once and she took to it like a fish to water. Jealousy ensues.
Some artists are just better suited for some mediums than others, yep. I'm the same way: I don't care for traditional media save for graphite and my trusty little mechanical pencil with blue lead. My media of choice for coloring/finishing out my illustration work is digital (Photoshop and Illustrator in my case) because I am a digital artist all the way down to my core.
When I was in school for my illustration degree I had to take a required class called "Illustration Media" which was basically a class that covered traditional media techniques of all kinds like oil pastel, scratch board, pen & ink, watercolor, dry brushing, etc. I was "eh" in that class, hanging around the middle as far as skill went. I wasn't amazing, but I wasn't terrible. When I got to the required "Digital Illustration" class, though? OHMYGERD. Duck to water on a jet ski.
I had the same prof for both classes and he noticed that as well. He once told me that he'd observed how I was "middle of the road meh" in Media but now that he was teaching me in Digital he understood why -- I was a digital artist. I still needed to take that Media class, though, in order to expand my boundaries and learn things that I later applied to digital media. You really have to master pencil and paper before moving on to digital, and it's a shame that so many kids don't realize that fact.
So long story short, I'm in the same boat as you. Some of us are just better suited for one media over another, and they're all just different but equal tools in the ArtBin to choose from.
