I had a foto from wikipedia.com,  I sketched outline of characters and created another shape of graphics. After that I assembled a necessary palette and just drew the lines like rainbow, picked out the form and deleted the rest of part. Then created grid of pixels, I like smooth pixelart. So here a picture is!

Something else?

has to be square! add this picture as a wip, then post just the final picture
also, it has to be your own idea

@panya, We are not mean. If Leonardo daVinci submitted the MonaLisa it would be sent back and rejected.
Not because its not awesome, can paint or has an accurate eye but because its not pixelart.

The techniques were always valid here, and quite cool.
The only question was really if the portraits were:
traced, which is ok but not that cool
or
color reductions
If traced, move on. If its a color reduction then it would be appreciated if you deleted the file yourself and from now on just remember how it works here.
I ask that you see other's point of view too. You are new and gave no reference or explanation in the description. It is for this reason alone that it sat waiting for a few days.

One last thing, if not color reduced, get rid of this WIP steps image and re-upload the finished pixelart as you had it.

Apart form the disputable mugshots, the piece is very nice. Love the psychedelic background!

People, you are so mean. It seems you don't want here anyone who really can draw and has an accurate eye.

I'd reckon this is the reference.
I'd say it is at the very best traced.

Wow, when I first saw this I thought you had used a gradient for this piece until I actually zoomed in. It looks really nice and the colors work well together. But could you possibly provide a reference picture?

This sort of looks like a color reduction to me but I could be wrong. i apologize if that is the case.

Please post your reference.

Привет! Насчет чего сейчас начнут спрашивать: 1. Color reduction в центре это или нет? CR-это когда используется готовая фотография и понижается цветность. 2. Грэдиент это или нет. Обе вещи на PJ по большому счету запрещены, чтобы все были в равных условиях.
