Since I've joined DA, there have been a couple of times when people (especially group admins) accused me of tracing my drawings. I'm not angry or anything, but it's still pretty annoying sometimes.
I'm using guide lines - that's no secret. The number of guidelines depends on the difficulty of the drawing, sometimes I don't even use any.
I don't think it's a bad thing to do, because I started off with grid drawing (mostly 20-30 grids) and now I've improved so much that it's enough to only use a single cross to get things right.
Now, what I can't understand is why some people think I'm tracing.
'You don't even upload WIPs' is one thing someone said to me in that matter. Well, the reason I don't do that is because I don't want to spoil to much of the drawing.
However, I have some WIPs that I can show you here if you're interested
