My First Digital Mosaic - Designer

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd share this greyscale digital mosaic with you all. It took ages to make and has 1829 pieces in it - no brushes used. Tough to get the tiles looking realistic but I'm happy with the way it turned out. It's an illustration for a book I'm currently writing.

Image quality has been reduced for fast loading.

You better believe it! It's all hand made.

Very nicely done! LOTS of work in there! :79_smiley_cat:

Thank you Matt. This second image was made in Affinity Designer too, but I had to do the actual magnification Corel as I couldn't find a way to do it in Affinity.

Looks good Martigny. Have you thought about adding some colour?

Hi Simon,

I made it in colour originally, but I print my books in black and white, so switched to greyscale. It's easy enough to change again, should I need to, because the layers are well organised.
