Ya, that is what he was talking about, strictly semantics.

 

Anyways, yes it is certainly a good idea. It allows to sketch really expressive and loosely at first, and then refine the geometry and perspective after. The key to utilizing underlays (or overlays) is not to "trace". Still be quick and loose and simply use the underlay as a guide.

 

I have also found for myself that using underlays has helped me identify areas and aspects of sketching that are consistently off. When you are sketching over and making the adjustments that are needed, you will notice consistencies and areas to improve on.
