Sea CG o Handpaint el 2D de ASFR es lo mejor, luego le seguiría el arte hecho en POSER.

1: Original 2-D drawings
Without contest, as this is the preferred medium of nearly all Japanese ASFRtists.

I'm assuming that by "3D pictures" you refer to the output of Poser-alike CGI programs. [FSF EDIT: Yes, like drake's Medusarrific Issues.]
While there are some few excellent entries in this category from Japanese artists (example:,
there aren't nearly enough around to make it a favourite.
Sadly, the Western-made content is, as ever, predictably mediocre in the 3D category, and all but non-existent in the 2D.

Photomanips of any sort I find to be unconvincing and completely uninteresting.

2d drawings hands down indeed. 3d is ok if done correctly.

2D original, with some preference for 2d manips, no objections to 3d original and manips. Smiley

Definitely original 2D drawings...although I think the term "hand-drawn" would be more accurate, since a good artist can at least create an illusion of 3D.

Second is a tie between 2D manips and 3D Poser stuff.  Manips are a lot more common, and most (barring my own crappy ones) of them are pretty good.  Some are even incredibly excellent, but those are pretty rare.  Poser stuff is usually harder to find (compared to manips, at least), and most of what I do just isn't really to my taste.  But some artists (such as Argo) have managed to make some pretty jaw-dropping pieces I really like, so it's got a lot of potential at least.

I'm afraid I've never been a big fan of "real" manips.  Or real people, either...or reality itself, for that matter.

2D drawings, to be certain.  It's what I look for most often, and it's my primary form of creative output - more often than not, my ideas to be written stay in the idea phase for the better part of eternity.
