Six Good Reasons To Not TraceWe here at stop-tracing have heard the excuses. This time, instead of knocking down the arguments that support tracing, I present to you reasons to not trace.Six Good Reasons To Not Trace by stop-tracing
1. Tracers don't improve.
Tracing is a really really good way to learn how to... um... trace.
Any good art teacher will tell you this- it's simply not a good way to learn. So many professionals, teachers, drawing books, and so on and so forth will tell you one key thing: "draw from life."
It helps. It looks like it's hard, but it does help immensely, and it's not so hard once you train your hand and eye to work together. When you're tracing, you aren't thinking. Your hand and eye aren't really working together. You're just mindlessly going over the lines. You're being a human Xerox machine.
Some people think that tracing helps you "get a feel" for how to draw the human body- this is simply not true
