LEGO Mosaic: "Echo"
Click for larger version.
This Lego mosaic portrait was commissioned as a memorial for "Echo," the family's beloved Doberman Pinscher.
Sometimes we get requests from fellow Lego enthusiasts who have brilliant ideas for a Lego mosaic portrait but want either a second opinion or some additional information. We love to work with other Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOL) and collaborate on Lego portraits. Such was the case with "Echo." Our customer had already drafted up a rendition of his Doberman Pinscher, "Echo," and wanted to see if I could build it either from his specifications, or perhaps re-work it to make it into the best portrait it could be.
We reviewed several of their favorite photos of Echo, their first family Dobe. After seeing one photo that was more horizontal, I discovered a great way to capture Echo by focusing mostly on her facial features, and from there, we determined that this would look the best as a grayscale portrait with subtle color highlights. This became the "Echo" mosaic pictured here, a highly-detailed Lego portrait of their cherished Doberman.
The build was captured in time-lapse video which you can see below, or by clicking here directly
