CHEF'S HELPERS - DRAWING OR PAINTING?

I've been so hesitant to use a lot of line work in my pieces because a heavy use of line and outlines can make images "cartoony" and unnatural. I like the idea that my processes is more about painting and not about drawing. The truth is it's about both. When I speed through the underdrawing stage to rush to the fun color and lighting my images lack solid composition and all that detail that I like to pack in. I'm learning to make friends with drawing again :)
