my take on the whole thing is that people with a more linear nature should fare well with traditional media, but non-linear people would be better suited to a digital environment, as it requires less planning.
the planning aspect of traditional media is often overlooked, sighting, measuring, blocking out highlights, etc, before paint is ever on the page. and then layering in a situation where you have to know what it will look like *before* it's done.
i've done a fair share of both traditional and digital art and i can say that i feel more comfortable working digitally, because of it's non-linear nature, while admitting that i would never change my experiences with traditional media, because the handling of tools and the excersize of planned thoughts was excellent for me.
basically, just preference
