Digital art is what all creative industries use today, because it is much more powerful, versatile, and practical. There are no messy spills, no getting paint on clothes and furniture, no cleaning up of brushes, and you don't have to constantly buy new paint and paper. You can do digital art anywhere using your laptop or tablet, and you can easily undo mistakes and have lots of convenient tools like layers, easy editing of colors, contrast/brightness, and many different art tools to choose form that traditional art does not have.
