About this creation








Finally - it's finished!

I started this piece way back in March or so and I've finally finished it. It's a mosaic of my daughter Parker done in 1x1 round aqua plates and is 96 x 64 studs in size [6000+ dots]. I haven't counted how many plates are on this one but man, my hands are sore! :-)

Like the other aqua mosaics I attempted to extract shades of "gray" by stacking the transparent plates one on top of the other. In this piece, I limited the stacks to 7 plates high. For "black", I used a dark blue transparent plate but to soften the impact I used a single transparent aqua plate on top of the dark blue. I had used a black plate before but it was too dark compared to the other shades and stood out too much.

Doug, I've admired your mosaics for a while & take inspiration from your efforts at pushing the boundaries of what can be done with Legos. Your I particularly like your results from stacking colors and transparent plates. I'd be very interested in talking with you about your experiences. I created a custom color set for pictobrick for my last mosaic- though mostly to eliminate colors that were 'available' but not really in any quantity. I'm looking forward to tinkering with the cfg you had posted on your blog. Jeremy Fink

Just a FYI. I posted a blog article recently that has more info about this piece and how it was created. What worked and what didn't. The article is here: http://web.me.com/doughill303/BaggadonutsLEGOArt/Blog/Entries/2009/6/27_Aqua_Mosaic_IV_-_Quest_for_more_%22grays%22_Redux.html -doug
