Hi, I'm Ivan (also Sodanium). I use pencil and paper almost exclusively. I don't use software for general drawing purposes because I don't have a tablet and all free phone apps have annoying ads and restrictions and I refuse to spend a single cent on software. I've already filled two sketchbooks that I built myself and working on the third one which I bought from the store (the paper is nicer and thicker than the copy paper I've used in the past). I started drawing by copying art from Sonic the Hedgehog comic books and started drawing ponies around 2013 or 2014, I think. I think my favorite thing to draw is characters, and I realize that's a very broad area.
