About this creation


This portrait and one of his brother were commissioned by their parents and presented to them as a gift.



30" x 40"

Portraits of this boy and his brother were created together in coordinating color palettes.



As always, my portraits are hand-drawn (not computer-generated) and mounted to a wooden backing similar to a canvas painting. See yourself in LEGO bricks! Commission a custom portrait.

Quoting Jeremy Fink I particularly like how you clean up the backgrounds. [...] Are you taking a picture then hand rendering, then choosing a backdrop based on the original picture or purely based on your hand drawn rendering?
Yes, I hand-draw the mosaics: face, backgrounds, everything, using a photo or photos as reference. Looking at your portraits, I'd recommend avoiding gray and dark gray altogether (unless using them for shadows of white items such as teeth or clothing) ... grays take the punch and liveliness out of an image or graphic. I also try not to anti-alias my edges or dither (speckle) areas; anti-aliasing and dithering often look good when you're drawing out the schematic but I think they look funny once its built.

Sean, Those are really nice. I particularly like how you clean up the backgrounds. I'm just starting with Lego mosaics & didn't think of that. Are you taking a picture then hand rendering, then choosing a backdrop based on the original picture or purely based on your hand drawn rendering? I ask because I was also really drawn to the effect you achieved on your mosaic Blue Boy. I also have to tell you, just seeing how much you create makes my fingertips ache. If you get a chance, I'd love to get your input / perspective on some of my mosaics. http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/107220 Jeremy
