If I draw something using a pencil I usually draw from a photo or some object. I think one of the advantages of programs like Painter is that it helps you because it makes it easier to trace the shape of something or create a rough sketch from which you can start working.

I really love painter and one of the cool things about it is that it helps me to create artwork that I could not create without it. I did not study art, I never painted with real oil colors, but I can still do nice-looking artwork with painter. For me, tracing and cloning is very useful, not to create an exact copy, but as a starting point (like I sometimes use tracing when I draw with pencils). It's a pity that this is not Krita's goal, I guess I have to stay with painter then.
