Hi Kris!
I too am getting a little weary about all the "I drew this with just a pencil,no blending or grids in...say..2 hours" BRAVO That and a buck will get you a cup of coffee. I use a grid because it's faster to grab outlines,proportion and even depth. I'm a beginner. I will use everything from a kleenex to a deerskin to blend tones to produce "depth". I draw for fun. We get a kick out of gawking at them at the cocktail party for a few yucks. DeVinci also used grids in his drawings/paintings as a guide to attain "depth" in his art. (as for tracing,that's a whole diff. matter,if you trace and get a kick out of that, that's great) Anyway, DeVinci used a gradiant grid as a guide to give depth to the room in this picture. Thanks!

Personally, I don't care how the artist gets the work done, as long as its not stolen from another artist.

If someone can get the same end result using a grid as someone who freehanded it, kudos to you.

I used to feel embarrassed for using a grid because one of my friends freehands everything and gets amazing results. I switched to freehanding which I got used to over time, but I still go back to using a grid if I can't get something right...even on my digital drawings, I google a grid, and through it on my reference photo to help me out.

Art is all about expression and how each individual does their own unique thing and style. The only people I don't have patience with are the ignorants who can't look outside of their own little world. Great post, Kris.

Feeling sorry for those critics who talk nonsense in the hope of appearing well-informed.

Yes Tom, you can say that Jake is the number 1 promoter of tracing here in this forum.
The only reason he called on some artists of tracing was when those artists claimed they did their artwork freehanded.
Jake always say that it's okay to trace..so there's no need to deny it.
I'm open to criticisms...keep them coming.
