Mostly I agree with other folks here. Thanks for your advice. IMO it’s always better to teach how to draw with your hands first. Actually, I started by drawing caricature pictures with my hands (it was about 10 years ago). Then I developed my skill much. So, I can say that I mostly draw with a graphic tablet now. Most of the recent works of art I’ve created are made with the help of it. Still, I highly recommend learning how to draw with your hands first. It will teach you to feel the drawing.
I think it would depend on your end goals. Digital seems to be a more lucrative and marketable skill for the modern day but thats not a hard and fast rule either nor is a job or that kind of thing always a factor. If you do both, both will probably improve. I find that workign across art forms really helps my brain see things in different ways.
With digital too, like traditional, sometimes better tools help so look into brushes and palettes. Watch what other artists do, there is a learning curve.
