How big is the overall image?  How small are the little pieces generally?  This is really neat.

@rosyposie It's 16x20 and I use pretty pretty small pieces, no bigger than 1/2 an inch which I layer.

@ohiodiygirl That's an awesome tattoo!

I thought the thumbnail was a photo, too  Smiley And I like that it's so big; I often see beautiful artworks that turn out to be small-photo-sized and I'm disappointed since I like my art large. Beautiful!

(This ROCKS!) Maaaaaaaaan !!!!! This is beautiful and so well done! I wouldn't have believed this was collage if you had not posted the close up. The angle (looking up) is fantastic. The layering and colouring is stunning and so life like. It seems to me that your tedious work paid off. This is really inspiring!!
