when you say fav, do you mean to use or to see used?
Think I probably like using pencils and black biros ('cus you don't have to sharpen them :P) best. Acrylics are awesome too, but my bro says if I tried using oils I'd immediately convert to being an oil painter! You?

It may seem odd but I adore working with clay as a medium! I guess though clay can be called a canvas and the glaze is paint, but it seems really that it can’t be compared to painting because all the steps are somewhat blended together!

Pencil, and computer. I've tried other medium (pastel, oil, acrylics and some other), but it just never worked.

Super Sculpey is my fav, I like working with 3D models rather than 2D images 'cause I find it easier. But I guess that doesn't really count, if I had to pick between the list above I would pick graphite (minus the charcoal, hard to work with.)

Watercolors cause it's all I really own but I do like how easy it is to blend.
But I would love to try arcylics. It seems many of my traditional favourites are made by them. (:

I can't really choose only one. I like watercolours when it comes to ethereal scenes, pastels and oils when it comes to expressing the games of light and the impression of a moment,inks and coloured pencils for hardness and softness feeling and collage for something surrealistic or a fresh, happy feeling

Too hard to choice. I don't think the answer. Pencil is the start of all picture and the first things we must learn to draw. But when you become Pro, and you want bring the life for your pictures, you will choice color for it. I love all. Because I'm too greed man. :iconeyes-freak-17:

Pencils. I like the precision you have with a good, sharpen pencil. The control on a pencil is usually easy and they're everywhere so I can draw something anywhere.
I personally find them convenient and I like the way it looks.

Well, I enjoy watching oil and watercolor works, but I'm terrible at traditional art.
I like working with color pencils but I always end up editing with photoshop... I guess digital work is what I enjoy working the most...

I can't decide, it's totally dependant on my mood, sometimes I feel like creating dainty watercolour pieces and sometimes I just want to get messy with thick acrylics.

I love using ALL of the mediums you listed!
