You do realise that most professionals work like that? It's not called being "lazy" its called saving time, since you know, they have strict deadlines and most of the time have to produce a couple of pieces within hat deadline. They wn't have 12 hours to spend on drawing every single detail of a painting.

Cutting corners makes sense for a deadline, but does he have one? I wouldn't think so. He is just arbitrarily cutting corners. It's lazy.

dude x'D try drawing pieces of art like he does and dare say that again. Concept art requires fast-paced working & an artist has to produce at maximum quantity nowadays, if not because of deadlines, then because he himself wants to create as much as possible. You know, that thing called eagerness or ambition.

Also, it's completely possible using brushes like these without anyone "noticing". Meaning that if some artists don't because of their pride, they will fall behind in the market. If you want to draw old-school, go ahead and do so. Doesn't mean saving time with new-school is "bad", cheap or lazy tho. You still have to know very much about what you're drawing, so you can't buy your way into the league of professional concept artists with certain brush-sets.

you don't have to be able to paint to understand how painting works, just like you don't have to be build a car to know whether or not the car works well. And since you can't paint something of this scale, by your own standards you don't have the right to talk, huh? Also, the person mentioned deadlines, so your point is moot ;3
secondarily: ambition, by definition, entails HARD WORK. Something that brushes circumvent, by making you do less work. Also quantity over quality does NOT make ambition. By your logic someone who churns out sketches daily is more 'eager' and 'ambitious' than someone who makes full scale paintings. shit point dude.
also I for one have noticed the same birds and trees in several of this artist's work, but even if I hadn't, it's still lazier than painting them by hand. And yeah, you absolutely would have to know plenty about what you're drawing to make a good painting, but that lies in skill- and skillful people can still be lazy. Just because someone *can* doesn't mean they *will*. Someone can have the ability to paint an entire field of grass and just bob ross that shit in a few minutes, but people who use brushes opt to just copy-paste the same patch over and over. Skilled? sure. Lazy? yep.  It makes sense for concept art and quick work, absolutely! meticulously planning out every detail WOULD make them fall behind! But to use it in even full-scale paintings? In every single painting and piece of art?? I'd say that's a bad habit. prevents practice of different poses, perspectives, and lighting of the particular things the brushes do. Old school art isn't inherently better, tips and tricks are nice sure, but some of those tricks ARE lazy, and I feel anyone has the full right to call people out on that when they do it. You insult every hardworking professional (especially of the pencil and paper) who doesn't cut corners by implying that it's the only way to get into that "league of professional concept artists"

*sighs* maaaan I have assignments to hand in xD
1. You do only realize certain things to their full extent once you have lived through them. 
2. You just compared liking a car's functionality to building and developing one. Look up Simon Stalenhag. Awesome paintings, right? Incredible vision. Very creative. But done with 3d-Support and use of several brush-sets. Does it make the artwork less enjoyale? Nope. Does it reduce his skill? Nope. Just the time he took for making it.
Getting back to the car, you also decide wheter or not it looks and drives nice. You don't give a shit if it was done by 200 people per hand or 20 people and 100 machines. Not scientifically accurate, but so is your point.
3. You miss my point m8. I did not say quantity is better than quality. But using tools to speed your process in order to create more works of the same quality, maybe even a bigger piece like a universe constructed of many unique works (referring to Stalenhag again); that is my point. That would not be as doable as it is thanks to certain tools like 3d modelling to speed up 2d drawing (like using a gun-model to not have to buy a real soft-gun and learn how it looks from different perspectives). That is something the pros do, and they do it for a reason; because they have the ambition to realize their vision, a part of themselves. Which to me is the essence of art.
4. I agree to a lot of the stuff you later said. Just wanted to point that out because the whole "first things first"- thing I'm pulling off right now may seem more snooty than I mean it to be.
5. I did never insult any artist working hard to not use tricks like brush-sets or 3d-modelling. Just said that their decision doesn't take credit away from people who like to work faster. After all, they still need to know how to place lighting, how certain materials react to light or movement, how to set a scene, composition, shading, creating a sense of scale, ... all that stuff that actually defines the quality of an artwork.

  0:  I feel this pain.   and yet we argue on . . .   late replies are still replies though eyyyy
1. to a degree. An innate or educated sense of perspective, realism, lighting/shading, anatomy, etc can be possible without doing a lick of art. Anecdotal as it may be, I'd cite my brother as my best art critic, though he doesn't draw he can easily pull apart any picture with expert understanding of what is right, wrong, and how to fix it- save for which exact paints to mix lol It helps in the sense of what exactly "to do" in order to make something, you can't understand how to -make- a painting if you don't know how to paint, but someone with a good eye can know whether a picture is right or wrong.
2. I still stand by skill being independent of laziness. The art is certainly no less enjoyable, nor the artist any less skilled if he can do the work without the brushes. The criticism is of the tactics used, not the work itself- I don't know if I made that clear or no, I have no qualms with the guys art, just his methods. If he used it to save time because he had deadlines or it was just to get out a quick idea, that's entirely excusable! The issue comes from relying on it even in large-scale paintings where there is no need to cut corners and avoid drawing things, especially as simple as distant birds or some trees, with the right skillset people should be able to do those things quickly and beautifully without a brush to fill in the gaps, it should be a time-saver, not a universal go-to. (heck, one of my favorite webcomics had every background traced from real life photos the artist took. I'd agree with doing that, otherwise drawing a cityscape hundreds of times would render the time taken to make the comic years longer, you'd never get the story he wanted to portray!) Brushes have their place. I do think they're lazy yes, but acceptable in particular situations. I just think an artist has to have the guts to own up to it and go "yeah I did get a bit lazy there" hell I'll openly admit to any time I've used stock backgrounds or textures, traced references should I go that far. It should only be shamed when it's used as a crutch or needlessly.
3/5 you mentioned with the 3D models, that too, has it's place. For grand-scale work that could not hope to be achieved without it, the use is excusable. Artists have been using real models, people- buildings- animals- objects- for yeeeears! That's the same as using a 3D model for reference no? Unless I'm not reading ya right. If you're talking about outright tracing it though, I'd say that's walking a fine line. Tracing for understanding of the object is okay, but relying on it for every image can cripple an artist's ability to properly draw whatever it is they are tracing, experience in recreating things is a must-have, so the use of 3D models should be sparing, or specific to certain things depending on the scale of the image. It should never be used as a go-to for every portion of the picture, just like re-painting a photograph can be a danger. It should be used tastefully and within reason, never as a crutch. It can also impair someone's ability TO place that lighting, react to movement, or set the scene if they just work from an already-made base. If they organize the base themselves, or go for an entirely different set of lighting, play around with the seperate components of the image, it can tiptoe around that. There's a way to go about shortcuts and a way not to, in my eyes.

the artwork may be of the same quality, but my issue comes from how it was made, whether the artist just painted over a screenshot from a movie color-for-color, or referenced it, y'know? Taking out the personal flare that art has, to me, hampers the essence of art. But That's my personal preference.

Tl;Dr (forgive this ungodly long message)
the tools aren't evil by nature, it's the way they are used that determines whether or not the artist is being lazy. The art however, is independent from the argument- it's damned beautiful no matter how it was made

You start with a fallacy, never a good sign XD

Cutting corners isn't ambition and neither is concept art. Keep in mind, that doesn't mean concept art is a bad thing. I just disagree with being able to buy brush sets because then your painting can be broken down into a bunch of other people's work you just paid for. Yeah, if you want to be professional a paycheck is better than pride. But this concept, buying brushes, seems to be at the expense of pride.

Soooo should we all go back to traditional oil painting? Digital Art in itself is just a means for easier, faster, cheaper and more comfortable painting. Leaving pride and all that stuff aside now we're near the question of what actually defines art, which for me is expressing yourself and the vision you have, which doesn't reduce the value of pieces made digitally with brush techniques. It's not just Copy/Paste after all, which is Something you would notice after trying it out.
