Mosaic WIP

Can you guess what it is?

Okay, so I'm borrowing this idea from Arthur Gugick. He's made those really cool Anakin/Darth Vader and Batman/Joker mosaics, where if you look at it from one direction you see one character, and from the other direction you see someone else. The concept is just too cool, and it's made using those nifty little cheese slopes.

So I wanted to try something like this.

My main problem is that I don't have the quantity of cheese slopes to really make something cool. This uses the bulk of my collection right here. (I knew I had a ton of yellow cheese slopes, but was a bit surprised by how many I had in dark green.) But anyway, I went with some really basic designs and tried this out. Have you figured out the designs? Here's the side images.

Yeah, not super complex. But it was fun making the technique work. Ideally, I'd like to make something bigger and maybe Bionicle related... but gosh this sure takes up a lot of cheese slopes and those things are kinda pricey. Plus, you can't substitute them with different sized bricks or plates. Oh well, future project / dream, I guess.

Wow...That is neat.

Hm... You know I think it would be cool if someone could like rig some Mindstorms motors to slowly rotate something like this plate back and forth, so people could see the effect better than having to physically move themselves at an angle.

lol And now you make me wish I have a lot of cheese slopes to experiment with for such an idea.

Not as impressive as huge-scale ones, of course, but very nice nonetheless.
