Do you prefer to draw in the "Waterfall" methodology or "Agile" methodology?
This kind of vibes with a previous discussion I posted, using methodologies from Software Development for art. Instead I'm thinking the actual creation process.
Waterfall in this sense being each phase/pass of the drawing is not sharable, but a necessary progression to complete a final project that crosses off a metaphorical checklist of what the final drawing needs.
1. Really quick thumb (not clear, but a plan)
2. adding details and definition (sloppy, fleshing out idea)
3. cleaning up the lines (critique worthy)
4. colored/shaded (everything comes together done)
Agile trades the scale and complexity of acceptable with doing only what's necessary at the highest quality.
So each pass can be aesthetically presented. Each phase adds more content and but adding a new pass just makes it even more impactful.
1. sketch (beautifully sketched done)
2. detailed (even better and more content added done )
3. lined (very clean and sharp really done)
4. Inked (Really really done)
Each phase of the drawing is sharable/impressionable. Even if it's not done, it still looks really good.
There's obviously variations and many other methodologies. Despite the paradigm shift in software development is a clear winner.
However, If you practice either style in art, which do you prefer?
