    See, this is really good. I don't understand why you don't draw from scratch more often.

    for the simple fact that if I drew or traced it wouldn't matter because the style itself is very similar so it's hard to tell at times, and can more times than not be mistaken for tracing.

    So what your saying is that because you've got the style down your not going to do original character line art? WEAK! You've got the skillz to do some cool original animated stuff DO IT! I wont lie I don't really care much about the traced stuff any one can hit live trace in Illustrator and thrown down some flats, this kinda stuff takes a bit of creativity and that's what I like to see

    PS cool RatBat pic I'd like to see your take on ravage (no one can say you traced it since their is no TFA ravage)

    Nah, I was trying to really get the point across that not everyone traces I just really love drawing models because folks can use them as reference and such, but because I draw them just standing there I'm always mistaken for tracing. I'll admit when I first ever started doing the animated style I did trace, but let's be honest the style for me at this point is pretty easy to imitate now so I haven't traced for quite some time. Ratbat, Sari and Cylonus, Glyph and a few others I've done are proof of that. :D 

    But, i's easier to let folks think what they wanna think at this point.
