These two drawings are technically excellent. I believe I have too often neglected technique in search of message. No longer. My insight is this: A drawing's message is not as important as its technical success (same for a painting's message). If a Work of Art is technically a "Wow!", it will supersede, and succeed. Success is measured by viewer engagement. The higher the level of technical success the higher the level of viewer engagement. Witness to this are the greatest works of Art, from Picasso's "Guernica" to Velazquez's "Las Meninas" to Michelangelo's "The Last Judgement".
