    Line draft vs Value draft

    Just out of curiosity, do you think someone who needs to make construction lines before they begin to draw/paint is a weaker artist than someone who can just slap on shapes and values and 'carve out' an artwork?

    You are weaker.

    I don't see either to be weaker, it really just depends on what sort of image you are doing. And I'm pretty sure those who can just put on shapes and values have had their practice and experience on working with construction lines so long that they don't always need to draw them visibly because those lines are in their heads.

    Does it really matter? I don't understand how it's relevant. It's not a 'who has the cooler process' competition. If the end result looks good, it looks good. Seems to be the answer for most of these topics; whatever works.

    Making hierarchies of artists is really dumb because you can make the artistic process arbitrarily difficult. Are both the artists you listed weaker than the guy who stands 20 feet away from the canvas and lobs paintballs at it? Then why don't we all do that?

    If more difficult is more arty why don't we all paint upside down in the dark? Just pick a goddamn process and stop worrying about what other people think of it.

    The weaker artist is the one who can't bench press their own weight. Duh.

    What would Caravaggio do?
