Lego pixel art

on: February 11, 2007, 06:48:51 am
Has anyone posted this yet? I was at the store tonight and saw that Legos has a new line called 'Mosaic'. Basically they give you a flat panel and a ton of pieces, and instructions on how to create a flat image. The result is more or less pixel art. It's interesting to see the sensibilities of this art style applied to something as universal as Legos.

I think I tired something like this a while back.. it's nice, but the sheer lack of colours makes everything rather basic.

It's new in that these are sets sold by Lego, not just people pixelling with pieces.

I recieved 2 of those for christmas and I have to say, it's seriously hard to make anything recognizable and with good pixel technique on a fixed 16x16 canvas using limited amounts of pixels of each color. It takes frickin' ages, too; there isn't a line tool, eraser, ctrl+z, or save as.
