I like how you can tell (for the traditional and digital comparison) both were done by the same person even though they look a little different. This is probably the first time I've seen your traditional work and I like seeing the strokes of the pencil (?) and where they go. Would you say that you approach drawing differently when you go traditional vs digital in terms of how you blend and how you do shading?
When I draw traditionally I am MUCH more careful with line placement and proportion-setting. Drawing digitally, I would consider myself borderline aggressive with throwing down shapes, colors, and values initially, mainly because it’s a lot easier to erase/alter/undo mistakes. When I blend traditionally, I usually just shade very lightly in gradients or use my finger to smudge (in some circles that’s considered a cardinal sin but, if you’re pretty controlled about it, the results can be quite pleasant). When I blend digitally, I just use the eyedropper tool to rapidly color pick and mush colors together. As a result, you’ll notice that the traditional sketch is a lot lighter and more delicate looking (lots of thin, sharp lines, esp. around the eyes), while the digital drawing has a broader range of values as well as harsher highlights and shadows.
Have some extra sketches, because I like posting asks with pictures.
