I love them all <3
Oil is awesome, shadows blend so good and the painting itself looks wonderful, I really like oils, but I hate how much time they spend in drying and all the mess as well, you can't clean your pencils with just water, it's annoying to use thinner :/

Watercolors are my favorite, they kind of look like copic markers :giggle: Which I love! But the problem is once you've painted you can't correct mistakes D: But watercoloring is my fav definetely even if I can't use them so well ~_~

Acrylics are good as well, they dry very fast, I don't use them so much, nor am I an acrylic fan

so, I choose watercolor over all :la:

I :heart: oil paints~! :love: It's messy and sometimes difficult, but I love it so~! xD it's expensive though. . . ; A ;

Acrylic makes me angry cuz it dries a different color. . . :iconnotimpressedplz: and I freak out too easily around water color. . . =w=;;

Oh my GOD oils are SO hard to use! Clean up is such a pain. I hate using thinner! Watercolor is fresher and cleaner and so much more fun! I like mixing rubbing alcohol with water in my watercolors.
Oil is the fewest!?! Oil is so much fun though! I like it much better than water colour <:3
I use a lot of watercolor and acrylic.
I'm too impatient for oil xD

It's not so much as I hate all of them as they all hate me/I need more practice.

I love Water Colour personally beacause i havnt used oil much for myself, Water colour i think takes more Skill, Acyllic on the other hand is hard beacause u gotta wait for it all to dry before carrying on.
