LEGO Mosaic: "Tyler"
Click for larger version.
This Lego mosaic portrait was commissioned to be prominently displayed at a Bar Mitzvah in New York.
Working on this piece was of particular interest to us for a few reasons. We love when our mosaics are involved in such a major life milestone for our customers. Additionally, the original photograph was so dramatic, we knew it would make a great Lego mosaic portrait.
In the photo, Tyler stood almost without emotion but the colors and brilliant lighting of the original photo gave me a lot to work with.
Pictured here, you can see that the mosaic's size allowed for the great detail in matching the original photo. To spice up the piece, we opted to colorize the sweater.
The crisp LEGO color palette makes this much more bold in person than this picture can portray. I was very pleased with how this one turned out.
