    I don't know, I kinda get his point. For a long time I felt jilted by artwork done digitally. Oh they can erase, and they can use layers where as you can't do that with traditional mediums. I felt like it was "cheating". Then I grew up and realized refusing to use all the tools given to you doesn't make your artwork better or special, it just gimps you and takes you longer to get from point A to point B. The only medium that I think anyone could really get a pat on the back for using well today would be oil paints. I feel kinda sad less and less people will get into it as you can achieve an identical look with digital medium, and I imagine people who buy art generally don't care how it gets done as long as it gets done, so going that rout won't get you kudos either. It still bugs me when I see lots of patterns used in various layers to imitate hand drawn details ect, but by golly Painter still takes a crap ton of patience, and there are people who will still hand draw every little detail. I imagine if Rembrandt was alive today he'd be knee thick in the digital field and probably make a larger percentage of his portfolio with it than not. Hell I wouldn't be into art if it wasn't for the digital medium just because I can't afford a steady supply of oil paints and canvas. That's just one huge monetary sink too few of us can really enjoy.

    And if it's just pencil on paper...erm, I'm sorry but there is zero difference between the pencil tool with a wacom and a 2B on an A4. Only thing that would make someone able to tell the difference is the physical pencil drawing looks like crap when scanned/photoed. >_>;

    Sup yuns, I got moar art.

    I drew my main two characters as ponies. (I'm not obsessed. >_> <_<)

    So here's my first try at my pally:


    After doing that one, I drew my DK, and corrected some of the things I did wrong:


    Funny story behind that one (well, two): I did those two pieces, plus two others for my art class. And my art teacher thought my DK was awesome, and she said "It's got a snowflake on it's butt!" I then started to tell her that it's a frost rune, and that the axes on his wrists are actually made of ice (I'm a nerd, I think things though) and she was laughing. Finally, she said how she thought it was awesome how I thought of all this.
    Then I showed them to my Dad and step mom, and she called my DK a she. Well, he is a belf, so there is some room for question there.

    Finally: Here's my pally version 2:

    And if you look close enough, you can see my awful line work. Tried basing him off one of the minor characters from FiM. While I did a lot better that time around, I still feel like I've got a long way to go to getting drawing ponies down.

    I've also thought of drawing the cast of FiM if Wow Tier armor (T10 all around, except for Druid and Priest. I'd use their Tier 5). Hell, I've already got in my head who is getting what class. (God what's wrong with me?) And not only that, but I wanted to put my Pally and DK in T10, and I've already got some ideas on how that will work.
    There is no Logic in WoW, only Blizzlogic.
