LEGO Mosaic: "Chad & Katie"
Click for larger version.
Just before Christmas, we heard from Katie, who wanted to commission a Christmas present to surprise her husband, a big Lego fan. We received two photos from Katie and ended up using a portrait of Katie from one photo and a portrait of Chad from the other photo.
Merging these two portraits, we could tell from the original photo that Chad is almost a foot taller than Katie. Our next step in the design process was bringing the two closer together. We stripped the background and opted for black, since it brings out the subjects more.
I was quite pleased with the final product - The plaid pattern of Chad's shirt was captured particularly well in the simplified Lego gray color scheme.
Our customer Katie said this about this portrait, "My husband LOVED his picture! It was on the wall shortly after he opened it. He was so surprised. Around Thanksgiving he started telling people he wanted Legos for Christmas - little did he know, he was getting them! It looks awesome."
