    I like both, but I usually only show my digital art, although I draw traditional art more often. My traditional art is usually messier, as I do a lot of drafting. Same with digital art, but I can hide the layers of which I do the drafting on. There is also a wider variety of brushes on the software I use(Photoshop), making it easier to create specific textures.

    I'm used to drawing traditionally, but I think I have a preference for digital art. The ink doesn't smudge and I can erase all my mistakes.

    Digital mostly because it looks cleaner and fresher

    I'm not a real artist so I can't really choose a side based on how much I enjoy doing them, but I like seeing traditional art more because it means no mistakes (or happy accidents if your Bob Ross) meaning you have to work with what happens and roll with the punches.

    I like both, but I usually prefer digital art for a few reasons:

    - While I have the tools for traditional art, I don't necessarily have the best workspace for it. My normal desk doesn't have that much space for working on things (even if I were to clear the clutter), and my other desk is fairly messy as well. Honestly, this is more of an excuse than anything as it's really "I don't feel like cleaning things up properly".

    - The mess. Less mess made in digital artwork. Even if it's just saving on paper for sketches. I have so many papers with various sketches on them that it's not funny.

    - Easier to bounce back from mistakes.

    - I like the looks it can achieve. Although the same is true for traditional.

    Though there are times when I want a specific look that I just can't recreate to my liking on the computer, or maybe I just feel like dabbling with something, so I will pull out the traditional media. But yeah, digital is how usually I go.
