Wow, you're style is pretty unique. It really reminds me of what is seen in American comics.

Will you also be drawing in manga style?

Thank you. I actually have some manga-based work out there, mainly from lessons that I'd been taking via Mark Crilley's YouTube channel alongside some other stuff. I need to dig it out from somewhere. It was fairly good.

He just traced them and did really basic pointillism on the shadows.


Evidence - Edit, messed up leto screenshot. The selected layer was meant to be the top one, showing it at around 50% opacity.






I am aware that MR has no rule about tracing, but i think users should be more transparent about when they trace, and provide sources to the originals.

How is that done? Is there a way that you can like automatically trace something or is it just a matter of having the reference below and going over the lines manually in a tablet?

Is there a way you can trace something but make it look less traced?

This.

I dunno if there are some other methods, though!

stick to the lines less, be more expressive in line thickness, lots of things :P
try drawing it first (no tracing) to see what you natural style looks like, then trying to trace using that style.

Funny, recently I started to do exactly that for practicing. First try to copy it just from the reference. Then trace broadly the composition and add the details myself.

yeah it gets a good balance of proportion, but doesnt look traced since you still drew a lot of it. its like a variation of drawing from reference i guess :P

not sure if it's tracing or not.
it's not that strange to draw from photographs.
artists also use things like pose books and scenery books to reference from.
