It's Been A While Since I Seen a Lego Mosaic, Nice Job, Hopefully You Decide To Change You Mind, And Make More.
Oh, I Added Something To My Urocyon, I Thought You Would Like To Check It Out, http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/251457

Do you use a program for this or plan or just go at it?
The irony of this project, and the reason it turned so painful for me, is that I had intended to computer generate it, but had to take over by hand. Granted, I wrote the code myself in a couple of hours. The generated images were recognizable, but not appealing. Doing it by hand became a several week nightmare for me precisely because I'm not an artist. As I said below, now that I know how hard it is (never mind using color), I will not be doing this again.
Very nice. Do you use a program for this or plan or just go at it? I find that these types of pictures (when viewed close mean nothing and from far away look amazing) have to be done by someone with great artistic abilities.
In fact, I do NOT like mosaics. LOL Actually, I did look at this and read the comments, not sure why there is no comment from me...something about short-term memory...what were we talking about? Anyway, great mosaics of Eddie Vedder and Hugh Laurie. What's that? Jim Morrison and who? Never heard of 'em. LMAO Man, I crack me up! Seriously, awesome work, something I'm in no hurry to try myself.~H
OK, most excellent work here. Great way to do B&W. I have no doubt that Mahler is rolling in his grave at being in the same pic with the so-called poet. I think Dennis Leary summed up Morrison best when he said: "I drunk...I'm nobody, I'm drunk...I'm Famous, I'm drunk...I'm F'in dead." However, that does not take away from this great creation of yours. Cheers.
Alas for the Doors, what else could they have done if Morrison didn't up and die? Excellent mosaics, and I feel that you did well to choose black and white, because I notice how you used both light and dark gray and blay to give yourself even more shading options.
Thanks Marge. It was very sweet of you to make an account to let me know. And if I do another mosaic, it will be the Mick Jagger you are lusting after. If you want to send me a comment, Marge, first you have to click on the preview button, and then also the continue button on the next page that comes up. Sometimes it's a little slow getting to the next page. (My mother in law, everyone, she likes Jim, but not as much as Mick, and she's only ever made out with Willie Nelson).
After I show my wife your "Morrison" you'll have earned her respect. Now, ask anyone here that knows my wife and a Lego geek earning her respect is... well... near impossible. Awesome work man! ~ Chris.

I love seeing others do them, particularly when done with this degree of skill. So when do you tackle that life sized remake of the Sistine Chapel?
Thanks, Mark. I'll definitely trust your eye that these came off well. It was a constant struggle to avoid "hot spots" (if I understand the term correctly) while trying to get brightness variation. I started to suspect after a while that these need to be much bigger to get more resolution to work with.
Oustanding work, Tom! I don't enjoy doing mosaics myself, but I love seeing others do them, particularly when done with this degree of skill. So when do you tackle that life sized remake of the Sistine Chapel?

This is a Sean Kenney kind of MOC! When I saw the thumbnail, I though "Sean Kenney's work." You are a god among men! A god among men, I say!
Dude, I am taking a risk answering you. There is no reason for you to post another comment here (particularly about your sister). I am flattered, and appreciate the kind comment, of course, but the difference in artistic skill between myself and Sean Kenney is a gaping chasm.
Thanks all. Don't mistake me for an artist, though. This was by far my most painful MOC (sadly I got to the point where I was not enjoying it, but felt locked in). I am not keen to try another mosaic, and also feel relieved that at least I had the a-priori sense not to try anything in color. Certainly
made me appreciate the skill of Sean and the other artists, profesional or otherwise.
