That can be limiting to a certain extent, but that doesn't like tracing, especially if you're using a lot of references. At that point, what you're doing is akin to melting down crayons to mold them into a candle. You're mixing things up to create something that wasn't there before.

My detailed sketch is me actually referencing the image and other images, used a bobcat face to get the head right instead of just tracing over things. If I then need to draw in more fine details like muscles outlines, elbows or knees I'll look up picture reference. It is a bit of a lenghty process, but the drawings feels like your own at the end, which is what I like.

Draw-It-Yourself Tutorial: Photo To Hand Trace Linart Image with Photoshop

Tracing a pose isnt bad, but it can hold you back. Tracing and whole image is just wrong. I am not sure if you are talking about tracing or referencing to be honest. If you really cut and stick pieces of different pictures together and then literally trace it, I can imagine that the outcome will be wrong since no two photos will have exactly the same perspective among other things.

In this case referencing this way will be just as wrong as tracing it. If you just look for multiple ref-pictures for different parts of the body, reference the parts and put some thought in how they are connected you are good! Further down is my opinion. I am by no means an expert. As for tracing itself, I've written a longish comment on it here, so if you like, read it here.

It is a huge misconception that using references is cheating. In my opinion it does a lot of harm NOT to use any reference for a beginner at least. I've reaad books, watched videos about this and that method of body abstraction and construction, drawn a ton of 'stick figures', manequins etc. Then I went to gesture drawing classes and tried to 'construct' the poses of the model. The later never stood in normal upright poses, just human spaghetti. I was minutes away from quitting drawing humans all together.

Best advise comming from the class teacher was to first do a shitty looking xD loose gesture sketch and then correct all you want, measure proportions etc after the gesture is right.

For that purpose I normally have a drawing-anatomy book close to my desk. After you have drawn a lot from reference you will memorize some things and won't need to reference every part of the pose. But in case you do not belive me, here are some examples of people working in the industry using reference and or complaining about people not using it. Rare ocation where you see what kind of reference is used for a pic: Adam Duff painting a vampire.

Pretend you're a bird with big healthy wings but you're afraid to use them because you'll fall, so you use a hand-glider instead The hand glider can only take you so far though, so every time you jump off your nest to fly anywhere, you will fall hallway to your destination and then you have to walk all the way there, and back to your nest Now, imagine the potential you can have if you picked up the courage and time to learn how to fly using your wings.

By doing this, you will reach your maximum potential, and make life so much easier for you. So with that said, I recommend you don't use your references as a clutch, and more of a learning tool so you can eventually draw from your imagination any pose you can think off in the future without heavily relying on tracing those poses.

It'll open up a whole new world of possibilities for your canvas. You could reach your full potential Oh come one it's a metaphor, you're not gonna fall and die by practicing drawing. Not reaching your potential is no different from dying, you only speed up the process through the dull existence of "what could have been". Tracing a reference limits you heavily. I tried it multiple times, with no real luck.

Even with heavy tinkering, they make the most uncanny stuff, often ending up looking like the giants from Attack on Titan.

How to Make a Quick Tactile Drawing

It's a very useful program with a lot of adjustment options, but the result usually looks like something out from a PS2 game with cell shading. Nowadays I only use to for reference generation. It depends on how you learn. Realistically, there's no right or wrong way to learn how to draw. A lot of people will tell you otherwise, but for studies and notes I think it's perfectly acceptable. You might find it easier to remember a piece of anatomy once you've drawn it.

Maybe your memory for drawing is mostly muscle based. There are loads of techniques for learning muscles and skeletons and movement.

Eh as long as you're not directly tracing line-over-line I think you can just safely call it education. I believe it's rather hard to learn to draw without references without using references first, haha. While it's true that tracing will give you results, fast and I've seen graphics artists do it that way because of that , it's detrimental to your skills in the long run: you develop a habit of relying on exact reference and of focusing on the lines instead of the volumetric shapes that make up your subjects. Not to mention that the artist you borrowed, say, a face from might take offence.

Studying anatomy, light, and perspective will let you draw from imagination more easily and use reference pictures loosely and creatively. Or how did you think the artists you reference from do it? One big benefit of tracing is that it helps you to 'see' or understand more about the topic you are depicting. Once you train your brain to illustrate what you see and not what you think you know, you will be able to illustrate anything.

There is no set way of learning because we are all so different. You have to do what works for you. Just remember not to get dependent on tracing if you try this tactic because your efforts won't be fulfilling - you will secretly know you didn't create them all by yourself.

Design & Architecture Drawing

Tying shoelaces or reading and writing are all learned by repetition. You won't learn or master drawing unless you dedicate the time to practice and experimenting.

You'll be amazed at how quickly you make progress. It's very confusing who to listen to when you begin but it is important that you decide what is right for you. Read everything you can and then pick out what you can use. If you want to learn to draw by tracing, don't be ashamed to use it, it's just one little road you take to arrive at your final destination.

Remember to pay attention to the lines you are actually copying! A numb mind won't help you at all. It is not harmful to draw by tracing, in fact your drawing skills can only improve. If you keep in mind that tracing and drawing are two different things , then you will make good progress. Click a link below to view a good variety of pencil tips:. Home Contact What's New?
