 This makes up my final project for my art G.C.S.E exam, worth 40% of my marks! Cheesy

We had 12 briefs to choose from and from mine, an unusual aspect of charactor, i decided upon creating this. 4 weeks later i had created all of the 2100+ tiles (+ is to account for misplacement) out of cardboard and covered them in a mixture of PVA, newspaper and water. Boy did my family pay for having such a creative relative, mwahaha, don't think my boyfriend liked being a minion either!!

In the actual exam, lasting 10 hours, i painted all of the tiles and glued them all down onto a sheet of card.
I'm so glad it's all over, and so are my hands! I enjoyed the process though and have plans for more big projects in the future!!

If you can't tell, it's me. Although it does make my chin look huge Shocked

30 x 70 tiles
75 x 175cm

Heres the link to the pic, enjoy!!

Thats lovely, I really dig it.

I make big abstract pictures that look very similar to that, except I just freebase it all and have everything jumbled up.

I totally respect all the effort and thought that went into this.

Great work Cheesy

I used paint shop pro and fiddled around with the posterisation/contrast and then the pixel tool.
