11th Doctor

by

I know I’ve been missing in action here on the blog, but if you’ve been following me on Facebook, and you really should be ;) , I posted yesterday that I’ve been getting ready for BrickCon with my newest mosaic.

Oh yes, bow ties are cool! Ever since Doctor Who returned to the airwaves on 2005, I’ve become an unashamed Whovian. As it is the 50th anniversary of the classic show, I figured I’d try my hand at portraying the current Doctor Matt Smith in my mosaic style.

Overall the mosaic from concept to completion took about a week and a half. It actually took longer as I did the initial design 2 months ago, but I was too busy with commissions and LEGO conventions to actually get around to building it till just a few days ago. I started building Friday and just finished up an hour ago.

I posted a “teaser pic” on Facebook also

Several people correctly guessed that it was the Doctor. :D

People often ask what computer program I use. And although I do used a few programs to do the initial color values, I mainly design the mosaic by hand. Here’s what it looks like.

    […] Mariann Asanuma (Model Gal) has revealed her most recent mosaic portrait of Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor from the Doctor Who series. I’ve been privy to seeing her amazing technique up close and I still can’t get my head around how she does this. Rather than doing the traditional “studs up” approach to mosaics, she is able to capture the most subtle rendering of edges and forms, all from the side. She’s also able to employ an impressive array of ways to change the direction of the orientation of the elements in the tightest of quarters. I’ve seen these as works in progress, and I’ve studied them from behind, and they are both inventive and ingenious. It’s no wonder she is a former Master Model Builder from Legoland, California. […]
