Digital can learn from traditional and vice versa. I'm finding myself drawn back to traditional work in the last few years but I still use digital with it like flipping the sketch in photoshop before I ink :)

Traditional media mostly right now. I don't do analog photos anymore because I don't have access to a negative scanner (and finding people that develop film without ruining it is becoming harder - I want a darkroom dangit then I could at least go back to my black and white madness). I have yet to upgrade my SLR to digital, so all I have for that is the point-and-shoot.

Mostly digital(tablet etc, and ZBrush most likely soon as well), but since I'm also doing college work, I also do Digital Photography, and als use Traditional Media(in which pencil/graphite/chalk/charcoal/ink etc I use in Life Class, and in Printmaking it's the printmaking tools so. )

Got a wacom bamboo tablet, but I rarely use it, I preffer working on solid paper, with pencils and, sometimes, a marker, for lines.

Like most people, I don't have the suitable work space for analog photography, but I did love it when I used it in school. I'm a sucker for traditional methods.

Most of the work I do for personal use - like the stuff I keep at home and don’t really share - is done with pencil, pen, charcoal, and occasionally paint. I also do a great bit of wood carving, and I’ve only shared a handful of those.

But on any given day, I love using CS5.5 to do vector images and photomanips. I’m most proficient in those, so I guess they would be my preference.

And seriously, what is wrong with coffee? Do I need to have words with a few people?

Traditional. I'm far too pitiful at figuring out digital work.

Digital media is what I do and what I like, I use a Wacom Bamboo Pen (CTL-470) with Photoshop for my digital art, from time to time and can use the 3DsMax that mescle each other, as in the case of this work:[link]
This work is done on Photoshop, Wacom is made on 3DsMax.

Both! Digital dslr for photography. PS and wacom tablet for digital work. And I am focusing on oil painting as my career if I can accomplish this dream :D. But really, I use anything and everything I can get my paws on. You can learn from it all!

Mostly traditional, dabbling in digital, but don't have the greatest programs for it. Currently saving up to go mostly digital =)

"I use traditional, digital and analogue photography" however I don't think my photos are art, they're just for fun and for filling my photo album with memories : )

Digital stuff to actually paint. Traditional stuff to get ideas down fast and to practice anatomy more effectively. And I practice modeling 3D objects in Blender from time to time.
But in general I'm a digital artist. More used to it.
