hi people im still new to the digital art thing, im taking a digital design course in september, and im brushing up on my art/painting/drawing skills with my new wacom, as im still trying to familiarize myself with painter 7, and the tablet itself, im starting to wonder if tracing is a bad idea to learn my way around, not only to familiarize myself but also to improve my compostition skills, does anyone have any advice?? should i stop playing with my tablet and take a traditional art coures?? (im still learing the basics when it comes to paining) or should i be using painters tracing paper to make a million variations of the mona lisa????
I guess this is kind of a personal option, but any advice would be very much apreciated
