    Question ^^

    I was wondering, I normally only do stuff on the computer, but I see so many people doing things off of it and they are awsome. Should I start to learn how to do all that or could I stick with just digital? (im 15 so I have some time to learn ^^) What is your opinion on digital and non-digital work?

    What's wrong with having your cake and eating it too? Learn both, it can only help you as an artist overall.

    No, you definitely need to learn traditional, non-digital work. In the long run, it will be more effective and it will ALL translate into your digital work. It doesnt quite work the other way around.
    Stick to traditional for now, do some real painting, it will help you learn about economy of line and stroke, colour theory, and proper painting and drawing techniques.

    do both because one hand washes the other. you have to think about things differently in either medium (and then again in different traditional mediums) and it all adds up in your head, building on what you already know. And besides, how else will you ever know what suits you best until you try it? I don't think one can say that you should do all this or none of that, only you can decide what your medium will be.

    this is coming from a guy who's currently all traditional, take that as you will
