i have said it before and i will say it again: there is no limit to a nerd. just like the universe, nerds have no boundaries. oh, you don’t believe me? you need some proof? ok.
yes. that is a GIANT portrait of princess peach, made out of bottle caps. over at the aptly-named instructional site, ‘instructables’ member skeplin made this, uhm, art. it’s cool, but i feel that the colour-picker tool in photoshop would have helped. instead, it took a dorkier route. in his own words, this was his material list:
- 980 bottle caps
- 16 acrylic paint colors
- a couple of Perl scripts
- 6 months worth of work
so what he did is actually pretty ingenious. he ran a program to determine the exact colours of this bitch, and then hand-painted each cap with the pixel map he created from said program.
go look at the princess peach pointillism. there’s even video. this kid will go far, i can feel it.
