Is this cheating?

are there proscriptive rules in drawing?

>>7196039
No. The shit hes tracing over is the easiest fucking part of drawing. If anything, him moving that 3d model around probably takes about as long as sketching the pose anyway.

No, because art is not a competition with mutually agreed-upon terms and conditions.
Does it lower my opinion of the art though? Yes. It's less impressive because of the tracing.

Not cheating. Only cheating if he made a tutorial and neglected to show that he used models. Go ahead and try "cheating" like him and see if your end result looks as good.

i feel like every "pro" level i see on twitter these days is a 3d fag tracing. im not against it to achieve something, but its one of the many factors that just sloppifies your work into sterile copies of everyone around you. you restrict your fluid ability to adapt weird intricacies into your that make it yours that you might only subconsciously draw otherwise, and oftentimes completely flatlines your development as an artist.

3d has been an all around horrible thing for artistry, but a wonderful thing for capitalistic need to produce.

It's not cheating because there are no one to "cheat" against, but it is a pit trap if you don't actively learn or try to get more confidence on your own lines.
Think about that.
The dude took the model, said "I want the shadows to go this way...", and then backed down, looked at the model, and said "This one looks better, damn... I'll use the model's shadow"
Basically you are just "cheating yourself"

if it's not painterly or an interesting style, then it's usually this method using a model. always the same boring, diffuse lighting that tasteless people enjoy

99% of anime illustrations you see on twitter are going to be using the models in clip studio and be boring as hell. if you look up to that, it's an easily achievable goal because they have no issues tracing and using every tool they can

The large majority of those who do it can't with proportions or at very least aren't as effective when left on their own.

True, and they have no right whining about ai. AI is the next step to mass production with the same mentality as them.

True, but when they start using AI it's just going to give a lot more credence to AI images with zero editing which means the death of the artist.

It's not cheating but a convenient tool that should only be used to meet deadlines. 3D tracing greatly saves time but makes your art look bland, stiff, and boring, aka 'soulless'.

Look at these examples:
>>7196039
>>7196046
>>7196060
>>7196126
>>7196157
They don't look bad but they don't look great either. I don't feel anything when looking at them. If you use 3D traced art, use it for filler stuff, panels, or moments that don't matter and you don't have enough time to draw them on your own.
Use your actual creativity, skills, and time for the big things that leave an impact and impression on people.

This one >>7196046 might be the worst one. There's so much effort put into everything else but the base being 3D makes it so boring and lifeless.
There's an attractive woman with her tits out but I feel nothing. My dick didn't even twitch. Only a madman would be able to masturbate to this. Might as well trace AI if you refuse to put emotion and creativity into your art.

Using 3D as a crutch will slowly stagnate and devolve your creativity and skills, as there is no wiggle room for improvements and different approaches anymore.
No evolution or creativity can take place, for the base template will always stay the same with the same low resistance.
You will rob yourself of your own flawed and ever-changing humanity. Your art will be perfect in shape and form without any expression or emotion behind it, just like pic related.

ive seen videos of comic book ledgends make an entire downstairs basement scene out of paper so they could draw it from multiple angles.

Kojima used Legos to make his levels in Metal Gear Solid 1.

SNK traced over 3D models to make their sprites in KoF13.

Professionals trace over their character sheets to make sure their heads stay in proportion and to make sure the artistic style staus consistent.

No rules just tools and a good artist can ad some squash and stretch or whatever adjustments to avoid stiffness.

Let the retards in this thread bark for using it. theyre a bitch on a chain behind a fence. cant do shit to stop you and cant do shit to stop other people from enjoying you.

On the one hand, I don't think an artist should avoid tools just for dogma's sake, but on the other hand, it seems like an easy trap to fall into. Having a tool take care of the abstract part of a drawing doesn't seem bad in itself, but I've also heard that it can be very difficult to reset a habit learned from a shortcut

Some models are rigged so well that you can animate the pectorals stretching when moving the arm backwards.
But it doesn't happen automatically, you gotta know the anatomy to apply the anatomy to the model. So no, you gotta know anatomy before using anatomically accurate models right.

For proportions and construction they're perfectly fine. If you can't do something as simple as correctly draw the clavicles reacting to shoulder movement in models that don't even have clavicles, you're not ready to draw people and should go back to grindin boxes.

If he knows how to model from scratch, if he knows how to rig from scratch, then he knows how to use it for drawing from scratch, unlike if he was a /beg/ he could never make a 3D model in the first place.

If it's someone else's model with zero understandance of the fundamentals then it's just a crutch that still will end up with mid uncanny results.

It's not cheating but if you copy the model 1 to 1 and don't know shit about gesture it WILL look like dogshit. You can't get good gesture with 3d without actually warping the model yourself form the action. A friend of mine leans on 3D models heavily and no matter how many times I say their hand drawn stuff looks more lively and energetic, they keep going back to the 3d tracing because it's faster. If you're going to use 3d models, use it as reference/scaffolding to redraw the entire pose from scratch. The result will almost always be better

An honest truth is that you need to trace to do the really really high end stuff. Most of the photorealistic portraits from before the camera were traced over projections. It's also good for more complex animations. See: this music video https://youtu.be/y2vzBdIejVY?si=yNZ2QyNF5eBRjJnb
The two main downsides are
>encourages permabegs to stagnate
>looks stiffer than real photos
Personally I prefer using a pose reference of a real photo over posing my own model (3d or physical) because it'll inherently be less stiff
>>
>>7200288
He probably meant using it as a reference anon
>>
>>7202406
Those realistic portraits you see in museums used grids rather than projections. Like, they had a physical easel with a grid on it of string or wire between them and the subject to match the grid on their canvas.

And all those artists that just copy from photos use grids too. It's the closest you can get to tracing without actually tracing. I don't normally use a grid on my paintings but if I'm drawing hands and having problems with them I'll just do a quick grid to get the basics down and then build the form from that. Easy peasy.

I mean, it's just a heads on view of an anime girl. The eyes are radically different, the head shape is slightly different, the nose is different, the hair is completely different. It's basically just anime. You could find a thousand images with this exact expression, angle, and proportions.
>>
>>7202427
Can you show some paintings that have been proven to use a grid? You know like how they x-ray paintings and they can view preparatory marks like that. I'm sure some exist that show grid usage

Yes but in this case at least the artist is competent enough to go without it, he probably has aphantasia or needs more inspiration than usual to get going since I don't see what would be the point otherwise. Most 3dlets don't know how to draw on their own so everything they trace looks traced.

no, there are objectively good reasons to trace objects, such as a commercial illustration that can be stylized after the trace. look at drew struzan movie posters or almost any other commercial artist in the past that traced/projected their work to get shit done. tracing and composition is still a skill
other complex objects like guitars and guns are almost impossible to draw in correct perspective so tracing it can be a big help, same with other complex machinery. your mechanical knowledge and mastery of fundamentals will only make your work stand out more but drawing over photos or tracing is the obvious thing to do to tackle some types of work

And that's why illustrations for this kind of purposes will be eventually streamlined to AI.

Where is the "no"?
>>
>>7202678
this is just convincing me that illustrators are mostly 3d cope artists, and manga/animation/comic book people are the only good commercial draftsmen.
>>
>>7202425
Because most people don't get off to the gacha roll system current AIslop is fundamentally based on.
Why waste time generating 100 images in the hopes of an image meeting halfway up the artists' standards just to fix it or use it as a reference when you could have just sketched out what you already know what you want to draw and be done with it in the same amount of time? Yes, maybe rending that image takes longer than a shat out AI but it can't compare to the final drawing since it not being fixed to look good, it just will because it's draw correctly in the first place.

learn Blender and make your own, will take some time but then you can make anything

You've got it totally backward on who's using tracing the most

I kek'd. You dont realize how much time saving you get from using 3D for manga/comic do you?

I'm sure if I looked online I could find them but I went to the indianapolis art museum and they had a painting of an artist doing a portrait that had the grid setup in it and everything. It was like a painting of the painting.

Also some basic googling:

Yes, but also no because it stops being art.

yes, and it looks like dog shit.

Not cheating when used to produce a pose you can't visualize in your mind.
Is cheating if traced.
Not applicable towards commercial things even when traced, because money doesn't smell.

Why would you need to do this over a simple fucking Profile?

>>7202881
The question is did he use a grid to create the drawing or is he using a grid to help him transfer the drawing he created without onto a canvas?
>>
>>7202954
In the Study I don't know but in the link it shows the device used to make portraits and still lives onto the canvas. In the painting I saw at the museum the artist was using the device to make the paint the portrait and not just do a study or transfer over. A grid device is illustrated to do landscapes as well.

Not all artists used them and even if you did you would still need to know your anatomy and how to build form. They are just there to speed things up and get the general shapes down quickly and accurately.

in your view. now post examples of things that look good to you

I think people just think you have to construct a new 3D model every single time you use one for your work, like generating ai from scratch each time like a gotcha role. That's not how 3D usage works and is why 3D is so preferred by companies so much because it's recyclable. That's why 3D overshadowed 2D for 25 years, despite not being objectively better for art than 2D.

3D, as a tool, is far more efficient and reusable than anything else we have right now, and I don't see that changing because the entry to make actually good models that can even mimic 2D is becoming smaller and smaller. Anyone can make shapes in the form of box men or blob people, rig it, and use to skip the blocking stage doing it by eye alone. Skilled people can make a decent replica of a character, rig it, and use it for a quicker construction for an art piece more efficiently than doing it without it if you know how to.

If you already don't know what you're fucking doing then it's only cheating yourself. However it only matters how much it will actually affect you when you DON'T use it.

I don't paint with real paints, I do my paints digital, will I suffer in a situation where I don't have my digital paints? Fuck yes. Apply to 3d models. I trace over 3d models, if I don't have a 3d models to trace over, am I worse comparatively? If the answer is yes, then I'm cheating myself and don't actually know the rhyme or reason for any of the fucking shit I'm actually doing.
>>
>>7202826
you overestimate how often 3d assets are used in manga creation
>>
>>7196046
Cheating? Maybe, it really depends on how soulless you want your end product to look. This is one of the "saved once when I was horny but never reviewed ever again" type of art pieces.
>>
I'm considered trying to make 3d models on my artstyle to speed up commissions but every time I drew from 3d the angle just looked fake and strange. It's like when you trace a picture entirely, it just doesn't translate well to how we see stuff with our eyes, idk how to explain it it's just a gut feeling.
>>
>>7202428
>lol anime all looks the same argument
Are you fucking blind? No, it's not radically different. It's an unrendered tracing. It's so blatant, it includes the exact same eye shape right down to smaller details like the creases. Just because they couldn't be fucked to render the eyelashes didn't make it a different eye. The shape of the mouth is altered but the character is basically doing the same stare and smile. NGMI

I mean just how long do MOST people spend looking at a comic/manga page, really? 1-2 seconds? It's not like MOST people study that shit
>>
>>7196039
No, but not being able to draw from imagination is truly a shame.

Plus it shows you haven't truly tried and grind construction, anatomy, perspective, anything really.

Now, if you are doing a project where it requieres heavy perspective and meeting deadlines, I see no problem with it, usually if you're taking these types of comisions you're all ready good at those skills but still employ 3d model tracing to up-speed the workflow

this is false. tracing lowers the quality of art and paves the way for ai slop. any artist who has a decent understanding of perspective does not need to trace even complex machinery. real artists use reference and make it their own by processing it and learning from it instead of mindlessly tracing.
>>
>>7196039
If it was 1:1 copy, maybe. The person didn't do that here.

The equivalent would be
Drawing a hand by directly tracing over it
VS.
Using your hand as a direct reference but giving the result your own style so it looks considerably different.
