Neytiri mosaic (Avatar) - 4608 Lego tiles 1x1

Hi All,

I would like to show you my last project. With some friends I have made this mosaic, we have used Lego tiles 1x1.
What do you think about it? I hope you enjoy it

    Very impressive. Now try and get them off the baseboards :)

    Is that all genuine lego, or have parts been modified? There seems to be a lot of different shades of grey which don't seem to have the shade difference of the old and new greys. Or is that an optical illusion?

    That's nice! It looks legit to me...I think the shades are playing a trick on you CCC. :)

    ^ Probably. Some of the whites seem to pop significantly more than others.

    Anyway, it's an impressive collection of old and new greys.

    you are a very good observer. We have painted the tiles with 7 type of colors in order to recreated the picture as we wanted. It has taken a lot more time but I think the result is better than using LEGO grays color
    What do you think about this solution?

    My personal view is that modifications (re-colouring, cutting, joining) are fine (if necessary)... but, as it is a cheat, that you say there are modifications if you display / show it. Otherwise most people will probably believe it is purist and not be able to work out how something was done when they look into it.

    I have tried a purely monochrome mosaic in the past with modern parts only (bricklink colours: white, light bluish grey, dark bluish grey and black) and not been able to get the picture looking right with only four tones. Going to the old greys as well helped a little, which is why I wondered about yours. Adding in tans and browns and sand red and dark red does help, but then it is no longer truly monochrome.

    If you were painting them anyway, why not go for shades of blue?

    Yes, you are right. It was better to write it in the title of the thread (i try to modify it).
    Regarding the choice of not use blue color, we have tryed some type and combination of blue but they were not satifactory. So we prefered to use a shades of gray, the final effect, in our opinion, it is better.
