I see tracing and using reference photos absolutely acceptable as long as the reference is given, the goal might be to refine or practice color use or texturing on a piece where the layout or composition is already set.  It is a great way for newer artists to refine their skills and learn what works and what doesn't in a specific medium.

In this case it is a very good translation from the original piece, I especially like how the cape turned out, great job!

I think it is a beautiful piece. I also agree that you should create an original character of your own. I like the weapon best and perhaps just a lil more contrast with the hair. All and all great work!

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/7/2009 13:12

thnkx,but what about his hair? :P

cheezburger (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/7/2009 12:19

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/6/2009 17:19

ummm...ok.....thnkx.....I think....

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 7/6/2009 16:50

The original has depth. No defined light source fatally wounds your version.

Tracing, as you just found out is very looked down upon around here. This is your personal pixel art gallery, everything is assumed to be original. I'd call this peice practice and take it down.

Despite all, Your shading isn't bad, just remember your light and shadow next time.

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/6/2009 16:22

is this so wrong? because i didn't know and i worked on it alot...:(

kvetacek (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/6/2009 14:41

Why is your pic almost the same as the reference picture? :x

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/6/2009 14:06

nice sprite =) 

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/6/2009 13:50

Tracing something means that you make the lineart using the ref as a guide, and you make it exactly the same way. I'm sure you didn't copy that by eye, that's tracing.

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 7/6/2009 13:24

But you made this piece, wouldn't you know if you traced it? 

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/6/2009 13:10

and what do you mean trace?...

10 minuts after...
I've checked it and....I think you're is almost the same....

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/6/2009 13:01

onek-the same like manjaman....have nooo ideaa....

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/6/2009 13:00

but i still don't get it....alot of peapole liked it but no one added it to he's favorits.. :P

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/6/2009 13:00

manjaman-srry but i have no idea what you're talking about....

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/6/2009 12:47

I think it's traced  but the dithering cool

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/6/2009 12:23

i also think its traced, im pretty sure its against the rules..... -_-... anyways....the shading is  quite good but needs a lot more contrast since its not quite readable on the white and blue parts of the armor...

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/6/2009 12:21

Sorry but, where is the interest to reproduce this character in pixel art ? Your shading is good, everything's very clean, but you don't bring any improvement to the first version, which is much more accomplished. You should create your own character, even if you're a bit influenced by this type of pictures. See what I want to say ?

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 7/6/2009 12:10

Did you just trace this one?


[edit]: I compared to two images, you did indeed trace this one. I am not sure if this is against the rules though.

yrizoud (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/6/2009 12:09

The dithering looks very good on "flat" steel surfaces, but I'm not convinced by its use on the white and black areas, and on the cape.

Spirou (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2009 10:30

I love !!

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/6/2009 09:22

that's a huge improvement ! NICE work! Actually, I really like it.


EDIT: Oh, now that I've seen the reference, it's like bleh, but it is still nice tho.
