Original title: Alexandra and her brand new sneaks.             

I wanted very very much to make pixel art with my girlfriend. And I made it.

I did it. Manually. It isn't color reduced photo. If I'm lying, you can ban me. Attention! I didn't copy any piece of photo to pixel. I made some pieces of body by way "look and draw, look and draw". Here is WIP

Please, believe me. I'm not lying and cheating. Promise!

I just felt like pointing them out.  We forgive traces, no worries, go pixel and prosper : )

I wasn't lying, because I didn't know it is tracing... My mistake and my big problem now.... So it will not be again. I'm sorry.... :(

Provide the original image next time as well, please.
And avoid obsessive compulsive lying about your work.
We've seen all the tricks, and we don't get duped.

To resubmit the pixel, I must make new pixel from zero. I can't do it now... So I'll delete it and I'll submit another one soon.... Situation is unpleasantly for me, but..... ok.... :(((

Ok, you have right. But... Don't offend.... Tracing is bad or banned? If you want, I can delete this pic, but I think that nn spite of all it's good. But I like this pixel and I prefer don't delete it... :(

   Yes, a reduce/emboss is still tracing, regardless of the contours it created after you did so. Tracing isn't necessarily bad, if it really does help you with forms and what not, but it's NOT accepted here at Pj. We'd rather you'd use your imagination, or draw from the eye as best as possible, without using the original reference as a crutch.
   As far as pixel critique goes, some of the dithered colors tend to lead on with one another, making it kinda' messy, and giving it a rough texture. When dithering try not to go overboard; keep it simple. You'd be amazed just how smooth 2-3 colors can work well together if dithered properly and smoothly. After looking at some your other stuff, I know you have some talent, so don't take this as people looking down on you, just a small slap on the wrist.

Any hoo, sending back for revision...

"I used original photo to make outlines (contures?), because my hand-drawn outlines are pathetic." <--tracing. however bad your result is, drawing on your own will teach you 100 times more than tracing.

I think, I didn't make tracing. I used the conture and all other I drawed from zero on the conture. I think, it isn't tracing...

ok, larwick, you have right. I used original photo to make outlines (contures?), because my hand-drawn outlines are pathetic. Sorry, my mistake in description.

"I made some pieces of body by way 'look and draw, look and draw'"
If this means you used a reference, could i please see it? :)

And what's with the WIP? it's like you used a really crappy B&W emboss filter on a photo or something. What's the reasoning behind this way of working? (with the strange B&W textured base image).
