33 Is Tracing Cheating?

Is tracing cheating? I don’t think so, and here’s why. I’ll also show you how to trace correctly in Procreate.


The challenge this week is to do the trace I started in the video. You’ll find that image below. After that, pick a few images from your photo roll or the internet and try tracing them.You might try a selfie like I did. If you can find ones with good examples of foreshortening, that would be even better.


We’ll be using the RYB palette, but if you want to download it, I’ve added it here, see Video 03 Downloading Stuff for details of how to install.
