Why not draw something original rather than copying what someone else has done?

Beautiful. Makes me jealous. I can never seem to spend more than a couple of hours on any one piece.

Because when you copy someone you know is good it helps you learn technique. If whoever you are copying did something really good, you might catch on to what it is halfway through and be able to do the same in your own artwork. Besides, copying something that already is good pretty much guarantees that the picture will be laid out nicely.

That's all a comment like that deserves.

Not even that actually.

It's a genuine question. Mechanical copying is not "art"; there's absolutely zero creativity involved. What's the point?

Ah, but Kenny isn't doing that. It took him hrs of work which (to me) sounds like he did it free hand. It takes a lot of skill (and practice) to draw a freehand picture that looks so good.
