Seems a little odd to want to fill in all of that a brick at the time when it's a shitload easier just to fill in the mass parts and then fine tune it a little.

As I said, fillbucket = valid tool. Just scribbling something and calling it pixelart = does not fly here. You did not clean your lines at all, there are jaggies all over the place and so on. And on top of that, this would work much better at a size of say 128xsomething pixels if you really wanna make it as pixelart.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I suggest you take the time to figure out what exactly pixel art is.. its not a matter of whether it's pure pixelart or not, its either pixel art or it isn't. deviantart has a quick definition if it helps atall.

What is Pixel Art?
A common misconception is the fact that "every digital media is made of pixels therefore it has to be pixel art." Even though there is some truth in that statement it's far from what pixel art fundamentally is.

Pixel art, by definition, is the creation of an image pixel by pixel using a minimal amount of graphical tools; literally building the image one pixel at a time from the ground up.
Most Pixelists utilize programs ranging from the simplistic (and often recommended) MS Paint to more advanced (but also often recommended) Photoshop with many, many other programs being appropriate as well.

Since most pixel art is created literally by placing a pixel at a time onto the canvas the typical Pixelist zooms into the image very closely in order to work at the the small dimensions which are required for the great precision used in the typical pixel artworks.

The most easily recognisable example of Pixel Art is that of the video game sprites and backgrounds used on the small hand-held gaming platforms.
The majority of Pixel Art is also created without the use of program renderings or manipulations such as lighting effects, blur, sharpen, and others which are commonly available as Filters in many graphics programs.

It is also expected that Pixel Art will be saved in GIF format as this format does not lose the image quality which is needed to display the precision involved in most pixel art. JPEG is another format that most would consider using for images with high color depth with large amounts of detail although many Pixelists avoid this format due to the fact that JPEG images often lose image clarity when saved at certain quality settings.
I've not got anything interesting to type here..

as long as you have full control over colours and pixelplacement you can use whatever, pencil tool, line tool, circles, rectangles, dither brushes all no problem, esp since you can always tweak. And yeh, spraycan is a bit dirty, but can be implemented well if you know how, not the case here tho.

ok, so question then (sorry for going off topic)...  i made this awhile back using dither brushes, then going back and refining:

does that make it pixel art?

Yes it does technically, but it does look more like a colourreduced bumpmap :D

lol, i wish it had been as easy as that  :D

jalonso gave me some dither brushes, and i wanted to screw around with em, so i made a large patter, erased parts i didn't need, and kept doing that...  took far longer than i should have taken...
