For this drawing, instead of seperating the colors with carefully drawn shapes, I created an almost hap hazard grid to serve as the windows to the color of the image. Can you see a face? I’ll explain…
This is the final 16″x20″ portrait. I like this burnt coral. It’s both bright and dark. I made a version with black lines and background and white lines and background. This one made the cut. I added those protective watermarks again. I’m not sure what I’m scared of.
I had to make a lot of decisions about which colors to use where.
Here you can see the just grid I created to separate the colors.
Here’s the embarrassing photograph I used as a guide.
Great idea! Must have taken a long time to make all those color decisions. I love using digital techniques to create what my imagination sees.
Congrats on your portrait.
Thank you so much! I’m going to check out your art!
While scrolling up and down quickly on my mac I could see the transformation from pix to colors. Great!
So very visually interesting!
How’d you do this one? You look very cat-like when you’re mosaic-ed!
