Well for as long as I have skimmed through this debate and it's comments relegating tracing to cheating, to stock photos and copyright laws. Here's something many of you may not have considered. Who CARES how art is made? If a person snags a photo from Google of a Olympic Swimmer diving into the water and uses THAT pose for a superhero in flight, does that make this artist a liar and a thief? No.  Also its like this, if people are really going to bitch and whine about wither an artist used a reference or not, and claiming this artist needs to "cite their source." then I guess if the artist lost or deleted their photo; then they would be at the internet for HOURS just trying to find the original photo. There are thousands upon thousands of stock photos based on ONE subject alone. 

People also need to realize this, did anyone ever take a look at an Art book of a video game before? You can't tell me video game concept artists, or comic book artists don't use reference photos. If they can get by with it, so can we. You know why? Because the target audience of those groups are only interested in the final product.

 No, it doesn't make them a liar or a thief. However, it does demonstrate a poor understanding of the human subject matter and conveys that the artist is not willing to dedicate any real time to understanding human forms.
