thank you , and also thanks for the CC , I think the lighter value was important to keep as it was to give it the contrast it has in the drapery as the original painting was composed , but I think your criticism is valid and that perhaps I should have used bigger clusters in some areas

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.

great drapery

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.

the concepts of your art are quite interesting , though  I don't completely understand them

fairly naturally realistic which is nice to see in pixel art

I don't think that this is fair for the rest of the contestants of this challenge , this is mainly 3D modeling skills which is implied into a pixel art contest

thanks , the original drawing is not really a sepia but the pixel art version does seem like on

I don't think that there is any thing wrong with using a reference for animation as I said , or art in general ( I do that very often myself). 

though as you described in some examples of animation styles , I do not think it is good when people trace over models in order to animate , I suppose in films its legitimate though it makes them less "artistic" through that process , but in a piece of art I do not think that tracing a model is a great thing to do , even if it is just for the general shape.

I might have just misunderstood you from the description though , if so it is my mistake.

WreX @ 3/3/2021 02:31 commented on April O'Neil

from what I understood I thought he traced over different views of a 3D frame , if so I feel that there is not really a process of "creating" the animation , because even with the 3D model there is no need to animate it but just rotate.

though if I misunderstood and all he did was using it as a reference , then I see nothing wrong with that.

WreX @ 3/3/2021 00:02 commented on April O'Neil

I am not much of an animator myself , but is it not cheating to use a 3D model for the frames ?
