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.
I think the both are good to pratice everyday (but not too much, because I think you know about Carpal Tunnel). The traditionnal art can be showed more easyly to their frinds than the digital one, and the digital drawings can give a more clean version of a draw. Both of them can be lost, traditionnal by being on another place you don't know the draw is here, and the digital one if your platform (graphic tablet or phone) is broked and other things.
If you struggle with digital, draw something on a piece of paper (your draw, ofc) and after, scan/take a photo of it and put the draw on your digital art programm ! So, my answer to this gonna be both.
In addition to practicing digital and traditional drawing, you might also want to consider trying paint by numbers as part of your artistic journey. Paint by numbers kits provide a structured and enjoyable way to improve your hand-drawing skills while creating beautiful artwork. It's a fun and relaxing way to explore different techniques and styles, and it can complement your overall artistic development. So, don't hesitate to include some paint by numbers sessions in your practice routine if it interests you! 🎨😊
