My husbands birthday is tomorrow so I decided to make him a special present. We have a huge bin of Legos in the basement. I spent about 2 weeks sorting through the whole thing pulling out the different colors. Then I took a pixelated picture from some video game characters, measured them off into a grid and began to build!
I'm very happy with how they turned out and he loves them! I found these two tutes which helped a lot too.

Great job.  I always cheat and use this site that has a free downloadable program to help with mapping it.
