Tracing Stamp by StampBandWagon Tracing Stamp by StampBandWagon
I fucking hate people who get where they are by doing this.

It's just lies.

I support tracing only if the tracer is tracing a picture taken by the tracer. Many artists actually trace things.

To be honest...I used to do that when i was younger but I didn't have a deviant art account nor my own computer at the time. It's still on my grandma's computer and... looking back at it... I felt silly :iconummplz:

I fill in lineart but at least I actually make up a design by myself. I know that using lineart is for newbs in the art community but I sculpt. And you would be surprised on how much better play-doh is than those fancy clay brands.

THANK YOU!
I see bases here all the time that were traced from an anime screencap

I don't like it when people claim that it's theirs, but I do support doing it when you first start out to learn proportion and to get better at drawing that specific species/character/style with responsibility. :)

I have to add something to this (not hate, just opinion);

When you start out drawing, it's really good to trace so you get a feel for the proportions. That's the only reason I make traced mlp bases, it helps me learn the size and shape of the ponies. However, tracing a professionals work and calling it your own is just LAME.

The creator of Ninja Turtles said that it's good to trace when you start because it helps you to learn proportion

I think they're referring to when people trace things and then claim they drew it on their own, not simply practice.

Tracing as a kid gave me my start, helped me better understand proportions and other properties that I just couldn't grasp at the time.
I shouldn't have to say that claiming traced art is wrong as a disclaimer to this message.
