Why is clean up so important?
Because you need to draw fast, you start off with a loose sketch and rough drawing. So you now have a great rough sketch, but because it is so messy you need to clean it up. Not trace but clean it up. Most, if not all of the animated films and tv shows have a nice clean line. That is what clean up and inking consist of.
