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 Tay.

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

I used computer software to pick-and-place-and-blend the individual tiles... but making the software did take a while. :3

Unfortunately not... I've asked, and I can't obtain the proper legal permission. I've printed out a copy for myself, and I gave a copy to Cyan in-person when I was at Mysterium, though.

Fascinating work, Rium! It must have taken you awhile to make this. Thankyou for sharing it! :D

Yep... it took me a while, but it took my computer even longer to compute it all out ;)
