Impressionism or badly considered?

Had a sketch with Corel Painter XI. I am interested in rendering my final works in this program because it forces you to think out a colour palette first. It apparently gives a more traditional feel over Photoshop, but I’m not too sure. Finding it a bit hard to get to grips with the software, but I like the available options on the brushes. I feel like I have less control and that could be a good thing.

I’ve been thinking about how loose or detailed I want my final works to be. If this project is intended as pre-production for a movie/game, do the people who recieve the work necessarilly want to see/know every single item on a character or environment design? Perhaps the mood is more important at that stage of the process. Adding a lot of detail can also lead to works looking static and lifeless. Our eyes sometimes like to imagine all the things that COULD be there as apposed to what already is.
