Will Smith trace drawing | Learn drawing with Paintology
We have all heard the controversy in the recent Oscars with the famous actor Will Smith. Due to his notoriety, I thought about doing a trace drawing of him with the Paintology app.
It turns out that the drawing came out better than I had expected and figured that this approach could be used for any picture. I find that this would be a great way for beginners to get into digital drawing and at the same time learning and having fun!

Trace Drawing video tutorial using the Paintology app
Using the trace bar of the app you can move from your drawing to the traced image. However, there are more features to this method of drawing when we use the color picker.
You can decide how big the colored regions will be depending on your skill level.
I prefer zooming in and coloring a smaller region of varying colors. In this way, I can expect to get more details and make the final drawing more photo realistic.
If you are a beginner, you may want to block out bigger regions and the final drawing will appear a bit blocky. However, it is a great way to start picking up skills and getting better with drawing so just keep practicing with your favorite images!
I would be very interested to hear from Paintology users on how they used this trace function. Please post to the community section of the app to proved any feedback. Thanks!
There are over 400 tutorials for you to try with the aim of making you a better artist whilst having fun.

Happy Painting & Drawing!
