Pixel art is when the artist manipulates each and all pixels of an image with limited size and palette. When you're using a tool that introduces any unwanted colors (it can be anything from regular brushes, smudge tools to transparency effects, or even resizing with anti-alias), you're defeating the whole purpose.

After you pointed out, I can see now that some of the lines are re-traced by you, but since the base is still just a re-sampled image, it does not fall into the pixel art category.

Here's a really good beginner's guide that explains all the basics, pitfalls and things to avoid:

I don't think that taking someone's vector (>>1490850 I guess, you aren't crediting the original artists) and running it through pixelate filter turns it into actual pixel art, nor it makes you an artist.
