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 Tay and Village.

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

Umm, I don't honestly remember, heh :p It took me a few weeks to do them, though, working a few hours a day... Most of that time was working out the software to do it all and waiting for the software to finish; once I had the final programming/settings I was having, it took me half a dozen clicks of the mouse and the computer 10 minutes to create. So that's either a lot or not many at all, depending on how you think about it. ;P

Wow. Few hours a day for a few weeks? That is intense. :P

...Doesn't everyone spend at least a bare minimum of 10 hours on their works of art, unless they're specifically trying to do something fast? o.o

Errr... I don't. :blushes: I usually spend an hour, max.
