i thought it was a bit suspicious you didnt say "this is turk (donald faison) from scrubs" or something.. so I did a quick google image search of him and found the reference.

tracing, definetly.. could go so far to say you just tweaked the brightness, contrast and colours, then did some quick dithering  :-\

hey

I don't want to be harsh on you or anything, for I think you do not know better. I just wanted to let you know that the uproar of sorts is due to that I think (and maybe others) there is no skill, far less effort, nor proper art involved in following/performing a few image processing functions ;).

Well are you willing to learn?  You show obvious effort trying to make something that resembles what you think is pixel art.......but you're methods aren't spot on.  So maybe you could try out the actual methods of producing pixel art; it appears as if you already have dithering down.  Everybody here is more than willing to help.

Just keep the critics happy and you'll be a hardcore pixeller in no time ;)


and where the hell is the bearded man?

He doesnt have "dithering down".  He color reduced a blue version of the photo - thats why it looks so messy and ugly.
