your pretty much decreasing the quality of the picture,

do something else with it, how bout instead of copying the picture, do a different pose, or something else, so it actually looks like you put some thought into it, instead of just tracing and coloring it

p.s. make it smaller, pixel art this big usually leaves less for actual pixel art, right now your just filling in lines

 Yep, I would resize him down. Then, clean everything up. To key is to get small shading areas. The blue shadows for it is consistent. I'd keep it there.

come on, that's not fair with this guy.

he's just not retracing the guy, he reshaded the whole tiger thing, he might not have done something very pixel focused but that is no reason to say that he's just retracing everything and reducing picture quality. You guys are just being harsh for no true reason

personally, I think he made an alright job of giving the pic some depth by shadowing the limbs towards the back.

the outline, at least, was traced. the shading looks like it was too, but i can't really tell.
either way, i have to tell you that tracing is not the way to go. referencing maybe, but tracing?

Please, ignore the trolls. This piece has self worth in itself. It's true that you'll gain more by not tracing or by "tracing by eye", trying to reproduce the image without tracing but just by observation, but that's not the where the value of a piece ends.
Come back to it in a few weeks, when you're not so sick of it anymore. Works tend to have much more value if they're finished.

A troll is supposed to be a person that has critiques on everything, not a mythical being?
