Well if you read it they said it's good to start out practicing that way. It's the same way we started out testing tools in my art college. As long as it's just practice with a tool I see nothing wrong with it...just dont sell the test pictures

You have to start somewhere when learning how to use Photoshop, upon doing tracings of vectors you can start to get the feel of how you can position the characters in your own custom way, possibly without a reference. I dunno, that's my spiel.

Read what I said, sketches are better but a trace is a good idea when you are starting out to get an idea of line thinness etc

You should be able to click the line you made to add a new point (With the pen tool)

Just a quick question, how well do you think this would work in the original MS PAINT? Which I did a Spitfire in 2 hours in. It's in my gallery, my most recent pic.

Well paint doesn't really have a pen tool or layers so i'm note sure really, but I'm guessing not too well, if you can't get photoshop I highly recommend downloading Inkscape or GIMP (free), both far more powerfull then paint

I have Paint.Net but I haven't used it in a while, [link] that's the one I did in Paint. Not great, but the first art from that episode!

It the top left corner of Photoshop when the pen tool is selected it might look like a little icon of a hollow square box with a filled-in box next to it, the filled one is what you want

I stuck in this part: "Now click the line to add a mid point, and while holding the control/command key, move it to the outer edge of the stroke, this is a slightly lobsided curve so will need 2 mid points"
Instead of moving only a part of the line (I don't know how is it said in English, I have it in Spanish) the whole line is moved.

Ahh yeas this happens to me sometimes, first control click the point you want to move to make sure its selected, if that doesn't work try moving it with the path selection tool (Icon is a black arrow cursor)

I just figured out how to do the vector without that part, anyways, thanks. This was very helpful, and once I saw this, I figured how to do it. I have been using PS for about a year and I still need to learn much more. It is way easier than how I was doing it previously.
