Ive been meditating on art cheats to deliver work faster.
Is tracing a drawing ever ethical, professional or just frowned upon? I read all the famous quotes about it, from sucessful artists. ‘whatever gets the job done’ or ‘client wont care how you do it, just as long as you do it’…
More true to photobash vs painting dilema.
Where we all know it takes a lot of lighting, perspective knowledge to make a photobash work. Won’t value and form knowledge have the same weight for tracing a photo in order to deliver faster sketches?
I reaally want to paint, I want to draw and design, take the project with a special care but I cant deliver as fast unless I use less glamorous methods, like photobash, 3d paintover of kitbashed models bought online.
Today I was making some figure drawing studies to use as a template and draw zombies on top, traditional drawings and I begun to wonder… Am I being an idiot for not tracing over these photos, draw on top of them and get the work done at light speed? Im thinking of doing this, use as many cheats as I can and devote a special hour or two for the day to practice and not forget about what I already know.
