A few people, including me, use things like those magic reproducers not so much to fake talent as to avoid erasure marks. Specifically, I've used one to project ruled lines for a calligraphy project, and another fellow noted that he inked the projections of pencilled work.

(Granted that a sort of talent would remove need for either of those uses.)

Hi Alexandre…thanks for the nice comment!
Since you're a storyboard artist, I hope you've seen my storyboarding blog, too:

I really like the drawings on your blog…and, like you, I love Krazy Kat and Andre Franquin!
