Not really.
Sure it seems like a quick fix and god send, but it is far from it.

Look at the detail you have around the top of your collar in your original. The live trace has completely destroyed it.
Same goes for around the eyes and parts of the face.
And The headband looks more like the tank logo than the Leaf now.

If you want to go this rout, then thats alright. This method can work for some pieces, but trust me it is not for all.
At least know how to edit the trace later though.
Go up to Object>Expand It will give you the vector points back so you can edit the trace further. Careful though. it looks like a mess.

Only do it if you really can devote the time an effort into it.
I've seen too may "art whore" type threads pop up, and the OP makes like 3 of the drawings, and then just gives up, or they make them, but the drawings suck ass.
So you have to take a lot into consideration.

i would have a set time on it (like 24 hours) and i can draw ok(ish) or just about good enough to be a whore. also it's a good way to get noticed on newgrounds.

back to the sketch books now, hasn't the art portal gotten a little worse for the newer artists? you can't see as many new submitions, but the quality of the work the has improved, just something for you all to think about.

starting to write a manga with my good mate jerry (as artist and co-writter). lots of work and planning need to go though before i can get pen to paper, it's going to be a school-life story but that's all i'm going to say for now.

i'm going to work hard to aviod it being "shit".

Judging from your wip, I kind of like how it looked with a black background, you should try that. You should also be careful about extra soft brush/gradient type things, too many of them can make digital paintings look a lil' cheesy.

Yeah, not to mention that all the artists who just spam pics of tits are taking all the attention away from the artists who actually make cool and innovative stuff. To be fair, the audience is also to blame for ignoring everything in favour of tits, but you can't really just change your demographic magically, so it's kinda unfortunate.

Is it going to be autobiographical or about a fictional character going through school?

It's going to follow a character. The story is a little pervy, contains super natural elements with slap stick style humour. That should provide a little perspective for those interested.

just keeping this up to date. i know the body shapes are a little off but this is the sort of style and level the picture will be, maybe a little better after more practice.

thanks, death note is a real work of art and i'll be sure to look up bakuman.
