Reatha's points about copying are well said. I often use the essay
analogy. It is ok to use images produced by other people and recorded
by a camera as we all need reference material. We should though,
acknowledge the reference. It often bothers me when people reproduce
a cartoon without acknowledgement.
There is a book on cartoonist called " The Art of Humourous
Illustration" by Nick Meglin.
In it he talks about 2 cartoonist who have vey different ways of
working. One quickly drew immages to convey a meaning but they
were not very accurate. e.g He could draw a few lines to suggest the
cockpit of an aircraft but a pilot would see that it was all wrong.
The other could not draw anything with out using references. He had
20 filing cabinets full of reference material.
