"I'm a fan of cheating. Anything that will improve the quality of the work, is legitimate. I stop short of any kind of plagarism, but everything else is fair game."
"David Hockney looked at his own inability to paint tightly realistic images and decided that everyone who could (master artists) must have cheated by using camera ludida projectors or reflective mirrors. He has since recanted, but there was a big uproar over his accusations that they 'cheated'. Cheating depends mainly on viewpoint. Projected images are cheating, but they are also self-limiting because they produce dead uninteresting images."
"At one time using perspective drawing rules was considered cheating. I would recommend trying all these different ways to cheat before rejecting them out of hand. Perhaps I should start a club 'image cheaters' anonymous."
