Why are you buying them when can get them by googling "pictures of horses" or going to breed associations and print off at home?

There are also plenty of magazines that have good pictures?

However will warn you if you are going to be wanting to sell any of your work? That is intellectual property theft, and need to be done from your own pictures.

And instead of tracing, learn to graph pictures.

Oh no I wouldnt be selling them.. whats graph pictures ?

Graphing pictures involves drawing a grid over the picture to be copied and then drawing a similar grid on a blank sheet of paper, then copying each grid from the original to the blank. Not sure if that made sense...it makes sense in my head!

No worries. My brother is an amazing artist. My stick people, on the other hand, commit suicide because they look so awful.

You're thinking about onion skin/tracing paper. Relatively cheap at any art/craft store.

I learned how to draw using the stuff, my pap would always buy it for me. After I felt comfortable drawing said thing by tracing, I'd then try to free-hand it by looking instead of tracing.

I do agree though that tracing and then selling is illegal though. If I want to do something with a photo I took and want it exactly the same I'll hop on photoshop on the computer and trace it, print it, and hold the printed sketch up to a window/light board with my drawing paper and lightly sketch over it again so I can start whatever it is without having to worry about any eraser marks on the outline/sketch/background. When I freehand for something I intend to do in charcoal, pastels, etc I'll sketch it on a piece of computer paper and go over it with a Sharpie and do the lightboard/window thing again in whatever media I'm using, ever so lightly.

What I do to graph, is get a folder like used for reports, that has sliding spine to place over clear plastic front and back.

I take ruler, and make grid of 1 inch squares on one of them. I also do one in 1/2 inch squares on the next one. So I have two graphs to lay over a photo, depending on how big a photo I am working with.

Then very lightly on canvas or drawing paper, I take ruler and make grid there, I will either do those the next size up, or even bigger than the grid on plastic I am using over photo.

I sketch outline of subject, again lightly. And by comparing grid over photo to the drawn grid, I can make sure placement and angles are correct.

Also helps you when you can look and see something isn't right, as you can check with photo grid and look at canvas.

And by making permanent set on the plastic, you can use over and over, photos aren't ruined either.
