(2012: Due to limited webspace (50Mb), images have been reduced in size.)
My Source of inspiration for this mosaic was an original ministeck model that has been available through TMT-Toys as an 18+ item (no longer available). I wondered why this was an 18+ item, because I bought this model in a toyshop when I was approximately 16 year.
What was the challenge in making this mosaic ?
- It was created from a grayscale picture.
- I didn't like the background of the original picture. It was removed and replaced with a more colourful (exotic) background.
- Again, 1x1 elements are very rare in my mosaics thanks to my own program.
I don't remember who's on the picture. I even don't remember where I downloaded it. If you know who it is, please let me know.
- Size of the mosaic: 80x133 cm - 192x320 pixels (32x53 inches)
- Designed and finished: March 2003
- (The picture wasn't made until September: I've been searching for a solution to hang my mosaics without using glue to attach the baseplates to a hardboard plate. I wanted the possibility to demolish the mosaics whenever I want, e.g. when I need the material for other mosaics.)
