As a beginner is it best to just continue grinding the fundamentals and doing studies or try working on full pieces even though your art is shit? Which leads to faster improvement?

grinding fundementals/studies

Fundamentals grind is theoretically what will give you skills faster but you'll just burn out if you have that kind of black & white view of progress. Draw what you want while keeping a bunch of real life images and favorite artists' works open as reference, and do studies whenever you get stuck at a certain concept that you've become able to define thanks to Just Fucking Drawing™

Do both. Study - apply - study - apply.

Fundies are just a meme.

This, but you have to be careful

It's like asking
>Should I practice distance running or run on a treadmill, or should I try running 5ks and marathons even if I don't finish?

They're not mutually exclusive, and you're welcome to try before you think you'll succeed, but if you want success in the races, unless you're running A LOT of them (enough that they ARE your training) there's no getting around the side-grind
