Fernando208, see section 4 of cure's pixelart thread in the forum here

What does "banding" mean?

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/24/2014 18:25

Banding in an of itself is not a terrible thing. Its overdoing it in a piece that can distract a pixelart enthusiast because we know what we are looking at. The banding here is very minimal and I had to actually look and zoom to find a few bits not worth throwing into the mix. Even fool has some banding here and there that also in no way distract.

It is flawless, to me, because its just looks great and uses the palette in a very appealing way. It also shows enough skill and delibarate pixel placement and displays care and dedication to making a quality piece of pixelart on the technical side.

In viewing art one has to juggle what is there with what you see. Holding one side against the other, as a fellow pixelartist and not a Mod is highly unfair and my comment was written as a fellow PJer which I am first and foremost.

For the record when I review pixeart to add to the gallery as a Mod I only go by the technical side of the piece and established pixelart techniques and the 'norm' as we've come to know it and never, ever by the 'art'. If I ever did that I would hardly ever add anything.

I sometimes comment as an artist and other times as a Mod and say seemingly incosistent things...I can't help it because ya noes...I'm not flawless
