Don't you realise how artists do their art? Noah Bradley, Wylie Beckert, Loish, Alphonse Mucha, Eric Jones, they ALL use/used references. Every single artist used references.

If you read my comment I said copying stroke by stroke is sleezy. 
Ilyaev Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
It's a reference, people definitely do copy "stroke for stroke", and that's ok.

And in case you don't read that comment here's a friendly screenshot of exactly what I said:…

I didn't expect the thread to be locked so quickly but I was also going to mention the whole Nick Simmons drama from a few years back in which a user DID get accused for COPYING poses directly from various popular mangas and got called a sleeze bag all up and down until he actually lost a publishing deal and closed his account on this very website.

I wasn't sure if the OP actually knew the difference between referencing and copying so I just went with what he said, to COPY a pose from another illustrated source. Which is actually kinda considered sleezy in the comics world, but not really morally egregious. It's not the same as observing the techniques of another artist in rendering an object.

If you read my comment I was referring to copying as the OP explicitly said the word copying in their opening. In fact the very first one I said was No in response to their question "is referencing bad?" 

I. Said. No.

Hi! You replied to my forum thread like a month ago. Thank you for that! I only logged back in now so I can't reply because the thread is now closed. But thank you for your suggestion! I'll try learning about AfterEffects. I've seen a lot of tutorials on YouTube about it so it must be good.
My project is done and it ended up really crappy but my teacher liked it anyway hahaha so yeah.

(Well it took me forever to reply, sorry about that, and thank you!!) :)
