I'm not reporting this to get in trouble I am reporting it to get answers from someone who could answer it concisely. Added to it would be "What can't we trace?"

Thanks for the reply. I hadn't seen that other entry or rejection by him before. I think if my question was better phrased, then so many people wouldn't have jumped on my case. I was just asking a question not making a comment on the skill of the entry.

When I said "direct trace" I meant having an existing photo in the background, creating another layer on top of that, then using the initial photo as a guide to trace lines. It would appear that the entrant did this or has exceptional spacial ability because they line up perfectly (I don't care which way he did it, I'm just asking). Once again, is it OK to get a photo off the web and hand trace or live trace, I'm guessing "yes".
Also, I'm thinking that it's also OK to do as you pointed out in this thread but what are the no-no's of that? i.e. celebrities?, well known buildings?
Again, I just want info and gave those as an example as to what I'm asking. I'm NOT criticizing, just giving examples.
You mean I really am important? How I feel when I'm drunk is correct?

Re: Why Can't I Fly, Friend?
Is there any way we can have one post, that explains the logic of this rejection in a way that people who don't follow the derby can understand? I have never seen a flying penguin shirt on woot, as far as I can remember, so I am confused.
Still single, can't imagine why.
