not sure if its a good place to start and talk about it , but I think it should be pretty obvious.

a dishonest method would be to trace , color reduce a picture , pick the colors straight from the picture instead of picking them your self and such methods .. 

while an honest method (while working with a source from example) would be to observe it , draw the angles and proportions , and observe the source and try to pick the colors by sight.

those are pretty obvious standards for art in my opinion.

And can you tell us more about honest methods, and what applies to dishonest methods?

Bugbear has explained to us that it is a tracing, which will be accepted in this instance because originality is difficult with this particular PJ challenge.
Thanks for the sharp eye though!

This is insane

this has striked me as a bit suspicious , so I color reduced the original painting and compared it to your piece as you can see in this gif - (https://i.imgur.com/xsMEjkz.gif).

while I know that its possible to be very accurate to your source with certain methods of art (through honest methods) , in this case it seems to be too accurate for me to believe you made that in an honest method of art , it just seems refined.

Great render of a great piece! Love it!

To paraphrase some rap lyrics, you "made that [palette] stretch like an 80 inch plasma". Great work, would love to see it run through a CRT filter because I bet it makes the 50% dither very effective (I might send it to Vagrant, he's great at emulating this stuff).

Love the atmosphere you have created with this one.
