This is my sixth and final compound picture of my mega mini bead project of the season 1 poster. shugotheripper.deviantart.com/…
Mini beads are from Hama www.hama.dk/welcome-to-a-color… and is about 2,5mm in diameter, half the size of a regular bead.
This final picture contains 308 squares of 56^2 beads equal 965’888 beads.
Its is 1,92 meters high and 3,01 meters wide.
The hight/wide ratio is as you can properly see very close to φ, the golden mean that is (√5+1)/2
I started the project on the 3rd of November 2012 and have finished today on the 24th of Marts 2014, meaning that it have taken me 1 and a half year to make. The mosaic constitutes a half years of full time work, but I have for natural reasons not worked full time on it. Each square takes between 1 and 4 hours to make dependent on its complexity.
In monetary terms I have spend an amount that is approximately equal to 1000 USD on materials.
However this is NOT a world record. At the time I started the project it would have been in the number of beads, but before I could finish it even that had been beat. And it was never going to be recognized anyway as Guinness measure their mosaics in absolute dimensions rather then in complexity. I have however completed this project entirely on my own.
Also note that some of the bead colours are distorted due to the scanning, the most obvious example is Pinkie's and Spitfire's hair as well as the logo, just so you know that her hair is not actually the wrong colour it only looks like that here, due to the scanning process.
I have taken a new photo of the mosaic with the sun in the background so you can see how it looks in naturel light.

By the way! Did you know this was featured on Hama's site? (That's how I discovered it!)
They typed your username wrong in the link, but I sent them an email already.
I have been though major one reconstruction surgery in my elbow.
So I don't know.
