Get it? It's like traditional vs. digital. Tradiginal XD

Anyways here's Palette and Digi having a fight. They're either training together or fighting because they're pissed at each other. I can see these two fighting/arguing about whether traditional art or digital art is better. (Sorry if you're wondering where this characterization is coming from. I've actually been developing these guys and their world for a while now. I'll make a drawing sometime with all the info on it.) 

Anyways in this world, there are different sorts of clans divided into the different types of art. These two, as well as the others in my Art of the Ninja Character Concept drawing, are the leaders of their respective clan. They don't usually associate with the other ones but in the story I have in my head, they come together as allies to fight off art block monsters. Some of them are closer than others but these two don't like each other too much. They are more of allies than friends and choose to just tolerate one another.  Palette and Digi are probably the most skilled in their art form compared to the others making them pretty great opponents. 

Each different clan in general has different strengths and weaknesses. In this case, the traditional ninjas are graceful, precise, and agile. However they are a little more on the slow side. Digital ninjas are quick and efficient but not all that great when it comes to accuracy.

That move could be called paint stroke

you should have two others like a traditional ninja who has two large pencils(looks kind of like a spratic Nostalgia Critic ) who like to make fast doodles and a digital ninja who looks like a robot(a camera head,a mouse for his right hand with a claw for a hand and a pen for the left that acts as a cannon and sword)that is a perfectionist and take time to do his art

On a technical standpoint, digital would have great aim... but unless it has tracking... dodgable.. but i think you might be making a pun of how hard it is to use a graphics tablet since you cannot see where you are drawing

Really diggin' their battle garb. Thing is, if all they're doing is sparring against each other, do they eventually clean up the battle ring/field in some fashion, or is it used again "as is", creating more interesting collages of art? :D
