Mosaic
Mosaic depicting my girlfriend and me in a feeble attempt to spark her interest in my lego creations. She does like this one in particular though.
About this creation
This looks like a very basic LEGO mosaic, but what sets it apart for me is the fashionable greenish color scheme - as opposed to the classic greyscale approach - which worked surprisingly well in retrospect

4 colors were used : black, green, lime and white.
Dimensioned as 96x96 studs.

Thanks a bunch for responding! I'm not really sure I think I might stick with smaller mosaics for now but I think I do want something with at least some gray in it ( I mostly have gray [I build mostly sci-fi]and It would be easier)so I might start with a gray scale photo of maybe my brother or something don't know yet. but thanks its really great! By the way Im interested in getting girls to play with legos too! lol... I found one of my old friends and she actually plays with them secretly lol. thanks a bunch.

Quoting Owen Williams Question though what do you recommend I use 1x1s or a multitude of bricks for areas of the same color and 1x1s for details?
Hi Owen, for this kind of mosaic I recommend using larger bricks, mainly 1x2 and 2x2 where possible ( I only used approx 3000 bricks for a 9220 studs mosaic ). This is also more cost-efficient, as for instance the black areas under the heads are mostly 2x2 bricks. A 2x2 brick costs about the same as a 1x1 brick on bricklink, and on top of that it's the most common brick sold I think. Ofcourse if one chooses to do a mosaic with a wider variety of colors they will have to resort to much more 1x1 bricks.

I don't understand why you don't have very many reviews I love your sculptures (especially this one) because I think mosaics are awesome and I just cant seem to do one but ill keep trying thanks for the inspiration! Question though what do you recommend I use 1x1s or a multitude of bricks for areas of the same color and 1x1s for details?
