I wanted to see what it would look like if pixels had different colored borders around them, and decided to kill two birds with one stone and sprite a bubble for this expirements.  I think it has a kind of cool mosiac like effect to it.

Looks like a chuck close piece, except it's a bubble, not a portrait.

finally something beatiful has been submitted to the challenge. i feel relieved and, at the same time, congrat you for a well exeuted piece. i think that adding a few more details to the reflex in the bubble would be a good idea, but that would probably burst it.

I participated in that black square discussion  credit me

It looks really cool and interesting

I got the idea from a conversation in the chat box before the comp was posted about Kazimir Malevich's "Black Square".
"Oh and overall, pixels are cool because they emit light, often in 3 different colors. Kazimirs pixel has never emitted light, nor has an on or off function.

And at last, have you ever seen a pixel with a border?"

and then I got the idea.
also, I just want to point out that the detail image isnt a blown up edited version of the small image.  The big image was made first.
