True, and those who trace the base (I did that once, on my very, very first doll).
Tool-shading can sometimes be a crutch, but it can also be hard; you still have to know how to shade. But, you also need to learn the tools and how to use them properly; it's more than the paint brush.
Though there are many bad toolshaders who seem to use the extra tools found in programs other than paint just to make themselves look better, some of them just might be newbies in general.
As fr male dolls, I've made several, and my most recent finshd piece in my thread has some major male editing in it. XD
