hey everyone!
for this challenge i made a big reproduction of a water lily photo that i had taken. i cut out tiny flowers out of magazines and divided a canvas into about 500 squares and then glued the cut-out flowers to the canvas to form a pixelated version of the original photo. it took me forever to find and cut out all the magazine flowers, but i'm happy with the end result. It's kinda hard to see the picture as a whole since it's close up, sorry.





shows the color better:

This is a bad picture, but it shows the flower better since it's far away:


original photo:


thanks so much looking!

a positive attitude may not improve the situation, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
