Neither are better as far as art goes. There are great paintings and there are great drawings. If you are asking which is easier to start doing, then I would have to say drawings, as you can do it anywhere, and you can use inexpensive paper. For Paintings there is a lot more preparation and the paper, canvas etc. Are much more expensive.
Both are better if you are good at, otherwise there is a no use of it.
I don't think there is a "better" when it comes to methods .. much depends on the art itself in terms of how appeasing it is
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
