It might be hard to see, but each individual image in this photomosaic is a screenshot from Riven. There's around 9450 little screenshots, all carefully arranged so that together they form a likeness of another screenshot from Riven. I've never actually created a complete 1:1-sized version of this image; it's always been WAY too large. Some applications don't like images larger than 16,383x16,383, they crash ;) But if I was to make a 1:1 copy, without the border it would be around 54630x41160 and would be around 6.4 Gigabytes. If you printed that image at 300dpi, it would be 15'2"x11'5"... quite a large image ;)

Click the download link to download a .zip file containing various desktop-sized versions of this image. There's a 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x960 and 1600x1200 image in the .zip file, which should satisfy most people. :)

This is one of a set of three photomosaics I have made from Riven. If you like this one, be sure to check out Wahrk Gallows and Village.

And for reference, here's a copy of the original screenshot and a closeup.

Woo, I love photomosaics! Great work, did you use a program or did you choose and place each picture yourself?
riumplus Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
There's WAY too many pictures for me to place them all by hand :giggle: I had the help of some software to try and find the most optimal pattern to place them. :)

On the new V5 DeviantArt skin, it's on the left-hand side of the image. It should be the second icon from the top. :)
Myst is an awsome game but that musta taken ages. well done.
