About this creation
Round 6
Category: Mosaic
Opponent:Steef de Prouw
Well here we are, semifinals...

When I saw that my category was "Mosaic" I had no idea what I was going to do at all...

So I did some research, and found a really cool style of Mosaic where you basically take pieces of broken glass or pottery or ceramic or whatnot, and arrange the shattered pieces as best as you can into the image you are going for.

Needless to say, I was intrigued, so after randomly looking through pictures online and on my hard drive, I decided on doing a Broken Mosaic of a Lotus Flower.

And since its more "oriental" themed, I just HAD to do a more "artsy" shot.

And a WIP shot, just to show how it was done and whatnot.

And a comparison shot with the picture I BASED it off of, not copied, based. I did add some stuff for more visual interest. You can kind of see the reflection on the water and the other plants in the background.

Again, crappy editing and all that.
And kudos to anyone who can tell me how many cheese slopes are in this thing, I lost count.

This is a new style of mosaic that I've never seen before, and although this comment is coming in long after the MOColympics are over, I just HOPE that they gave the win to you for generating a new style that is either totally new, or under-MOCed at the very least. You seem to do a lot of Oriental MOC's. I'm glad to see somebody else on here (there are a few of us that I know of) that have a flair for the Asian side of the planet we live on.

Very, very good. It'd make a good floor tile for a fantasy dio, methinks.

You’ve already won, but I wanted to weigh in and say that this is brilliant…well done, Kevin! Now just lay it flat and put some figs and whatnot on it and you’ve got an amazing mosaic tile floor! Congrats, again.

Well, Kevin, it's not more a creative approach to mosaic, it is also the genuine and original mosaic technique. Also: I believe it's never been done before in Lego! I was hoping we were going to see something like this! Winner Kevin, total winner: you get my vote.

This is a spectacular mosaic Kevin! I like how you took the idea in a whole different direction. The idea of framing is well done also!

very cool, I saw this earlier on Flickr, I like the style and the cast shadow, and the three dimensional feel. I don't if I like the friction-fitting of elements though.

Beautiful. I don't know if it's art, but I feel it.

This is a beautiful mosaic and a very good representation of the lotus in Lego. I counted 62 of those mini cheese wedge's give or take a few :)

Great mosaic, I love it, so simple, yet very intricate. BTW: there are way too many cheese slopes in there. Now didn't you say I get a Kudos Bar or something? :P

I have to agree that this is probably the first "original" idea in lego that I've seen in a long time. Both mosaics were AWESOME but your original approach got my vote! ~ Chris.

Amazing approach, Kevin! Steef did very well, but this tecnique, combined with a very nicely executed image has me sold...you've got my vote! Well done once again!

You made this in really hard way by using slopes and cheeses, and that's why this looks great! I think you are going to win this round, with no doubt!

I counted 32 cheese slopes. Which means there are probably more. :D Great job! Very original, you really captured the broken-pieces-of-glass mosaic style. I don't know who to cheer for, I was cheering for both of ya. Good luck.

Dont eat lotus. It makes you lazy. But I guess making a mosaic is okay. Brilliant job Fedde.

Hmmm, what to say, what to say...I guess I will simply reiterate previous sentiments and say I have never seen anything like this in LEGO and it's quite a first at that. While Steef did a lovely rendition of the painting he chose, this is perhaps, dare I say, a masterpiece? Certainly a more than worthy entry at this late stage in the game. Best of luck and once again, BRAVO!~H
