That's the same with me. I only stared using illustrator and photoshop a couple of years ago, before then I would only ever work with pencils, pens and watercolours. I still work like that but it's good to know I have other options if I want to try a different style or look with a piece of work.
*nods* Oh absolutely. I'm actually tryin' to ink in Flash, I like it. It's a pain sometimes, but it's still good. Also tryin' Photoshop for inking too. Still feel a bit comfortable inking with regular pens though.
*nods* Same here...although I hate it when I erase, the paper crumbles up and stuff...at least my scanner doesn't pick it up though. But every now and then I scan the image, then import it into Flash, ink usin' my tablet, and then it's ready to go. Inking digitally takes a long time...but the best part is if I mess up, I won't complain as much as if I was doing it traditionally.
