 Its fake in that it had learned that series of strokes previously over a timeframe then practiced that one image and could reproduce it.

Yes, it's fake.

 PBDC : I guarantee it isn't obvious to everyone.  Go ahead and try.  If you happen to do a shitty job, the next time you try it you'll be better.  No way to learn without fucking up -- and it's good to do so amongst friends.

It's quite obvious what this is, but I don't have the skillz to pixel at this size.

This is perfect! I'll definitely see if I have the time to enter~ I went to Thailand back in March and we visited the Maesa Elephant Camp up near ChangMai.

You don't necessarily need to trace over the shapes (and you certainly don't have to keep every pixel the same as the base - it's just a thresholded version of the painting). You can just sketch something based on it, as long as it's clear that its inspiration was the painting. Think Pearl or Natalie.

 Pixel what we see, so the original silhouette can be edited, yes?

You can modify it in any way, but you should keep it as close to the original as possible

I see a fatass mermaid with a rat climbing over her and a tonne of black birds.

 I can see a man sitting down :D, just a question. Can I add any more pixels at all? And can I cut the pieces that I'm not going to use or just leave it there?


user

 Cirpons is right, this would be best being a blind challenge but still will be pretty interesting :)


user

Im gonna try and not look at the challenge tread, because you cant unsee what others find.
