I hope this explains a bit why I think it’s important to be able to make a proper range of value scales from white to black, whatever medium/tool you are using.

Please also take a look at this follow-up, which explains “half-way to black” and tonal values a bit further.

(By the way, the term “halfway to black” is something I learned from the brilliant Scott Robertson.)
