I made this rose for my girlfriend, im getting it printed onto a 70x70cm canvas for the bedroom,  thought i'd put it up on here too, I like the other Chuck Close style pixel art I did so much I thought i'd do another one.

I got the canvas up now, it looks really good.  I'd recommend anyone getting their favourite pixel art blown up on canvas.  Makes for an interesting picture up close.

I'm having trouble finding him, but I believe he's in there.

Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 1/11/2009 05:52
He's on the left side 6 from bottom

Oh, I see the triforce. It's on the very bottom, 4th one in from the left.
Where's Mario?

Good, but not so good colors like " still life ". Would love to see a WIP next time u doing the "Chuck Close" style.

No its not on the preview, but half of mario's head from the smb nes sprite is on there somewhere.  And there's a triforce too

I think it looks great. The different textures on the individual boxes kind of give a warped effect, like an optical illusion.

I kind of want to see how it will look like in print! Wow! Great work!

Very cool! Kinda hard to tell its a rose though! Amazing only 6 colors too!

I think I found Mario. He's in the preview 4th box in,5 boxes down (above I E)

Yeah I was thinking that, but its for a painting and one of the walls in my room is red, so its red to suit the room.

Thanks for comments.  I make the big squares base colours first trying to make it so that none touching are the same, then I use the other colours to fill them in randomly, but trying to keep the shape that it needs or the main shade that it needs to make the picture as a whole work.  The further you are away the more it should look like a rose.  I also snuck a couple of nintendo pixels in there... but that was for me  (see if you can find them)

It looks really good. Do you try to put different images in the squares, or do you try to make it a little more random?
