One little thingie i made in one hour.
Some time ago i made a tiny pixelated face of Donnie:
and today, when i was in one market, i've noticed a section with papers, pencils and astistic stuff...and between them there were some creating games for kids...and there i saw these little plates with little colourful puffy cubes with sticky bottom...it was called "Mozaika" which means "Mosaic" There were some templates of flowers, cherries, dolphynes and so on and you had to put cubes on it to make it look like made from mosaic.
But i immediatelly had another plan with it >u> this was a good chance for me to make one of my little dreams come true. I always wanted some cubes so i could use them like pixels and make some pixel art like i do in photoshop.
One plate of cubes costed about 35 Kč, which is about $1.81. It was kinda good price, so i took two plates.
When i got home, i took one hard paper so it had a better base and started sticking cube by cube to th paper according to the photoshop version.
Originally i wanted to make this one:
but i realized that it has too many pixels and two plates of cubes i had didnt have much of cubes...and there was mainly a big lack of green oHo" so i had to create this smaller Donnie pixel... Also there were tons of two shades of blue and orange... Also.. there was no black and red color, so i had to improvise and i took my markers and recoloured yellow cubes (that are totally useless) into black cubes... and because red colour is close to orange and there was alot of orange, i took some of them and recoloured them into red...yellow cubes recoloured into red ones..that was a bad idea, because eventhough i put alot of layers of black, you still can see yellow peeking from it :/ so orange cubes recoloured into red looked better as the colors are closer.
And because there were no more shades of one color, i also had to use green markers and give some more green shades to the lightest green i had there...so..the dark green outlines are recoloured with markers ad well as the lighter shadow of the green skin.
And outline of the mask is recoloured as well...well...if there isnt what you need...make it yourself
And at the end i jsut used the paper knife to cut it our of the rest of unneeded part of the paper and voila! Pixels right in your hand! >w<
I planned to make other turtles as well, but only one green cube left, so ill go buy more tomorrow. But ill not create in next year, because as i showed it to my friend Mary, she liked it so much so i got idea that she might try to make her favourite Raph herself after she comes to visit me at the cottage next year hopefully ^^ so ill jsut buy it and ill save it for when she will come and after then youll see Leo, Mikey and Raph too >u< you can take this jsut as a little test if it works...and ill also see how people will like it first ^^
