It's a question that we've had a fair bit over the years that we've covered a little in blogs and podcasts. But in this post we wanted to talk a little in detail about whether using a grid system or tracing to produce your outline drawing is "cheating".

Sue sent us an email regarding a friend of hers that made this remark. Sue is one of our members and has done fantastically well working through our projects to the point where she now does pictures for people.
