Now Viewing: traditional_media


Tag type: None

A tag used to mark any image that's drawn partly or entirely without the assistance of a computer. The name is in contrast with "digital media" which dominates Gelbooru.

Please use this tag only if you're 100% sure that the image is actually drawn by hand. Use faux_traditional_media for digital images that mimic a hand-drawn/non-CG style.

An image that is partly traditional, but also contains digital elements (e.g. digital spot_color), should receive the additional tag mixed_media. Digital filtering, performed to improve the visibility of the traditional artwork (e.g. color adjustment), rather than as a creative effect or to remove flaws, does not make an image mixed media.

A good way to tell if a drawing is traditional is to look for "analog" or アナログ in kana. You'll find this tag on Pixiv and used on some Japanese artists' sites. (Beware however that some people will tag their image "アナログ" that don't qualify to our standards of the tag).
