Digital vs Traditional

I've owned a Wacom tablet for about ten years, but have always felt awkward using it, and to tell the truth I'm a bit old-fashioned and prefer to use traditional mediums like watercolour and pencil. However, the other night I made a little sketch in my journal and scanned the drawing. The image above has been coloured using my old Wacom tablet. When I scanned the drawing, I retained the paper texture from my journal, so the flat areas of colour applied to the illustration in Photoshop look more organic. Without giving too much away, the old guy above is the beginning of a new personal illustration project.
