Photo Mosaics: Edmond and Emily

February 25th, 2010

snatched from S.B. and Gayl

So, I'm doing a photo mosaic meme again; however, this time I'm using it as tool to examine my characters (namely Edmond and Emily) in depth. This version of the meme was started by S.B and Gayl. Thanks for the brilliant idea, ladies!

It was a little more challenging than I thought it would be. I was sure that I knew my characters really well, but they surprised me with some of their answers. It was an interesting exercise and great way to put myself into their minds.

1. Answer each of the questions below using Flickr Search.
2. Choose a photo from the first three pages.
3. Copy the URL of your favorite photo into this site: bighugelabs.com/flickr/mosaic.php

    Kara these are wonderful!! And perfect for both Edmond and Emily. I am so glad you did these. Now how about Brandee and Tahlvin, hehehe. And Julian! :P

  2. S.B. says:

    I LOVE these!! You absolutely nailed both of them! Not only the choice of photos, but the words and the favorites too.

    It is a difficult and fascinating exercise. I'm so glad you did it! And yeah…Brandee and Tahlvin…

  3. S.B. says:

    And I have to add that replacing "What I want to be when I grow up" with "Vocation/Career" is a great idea.

  4. Kara says:

    @Gayl: Thank you! I'm so glad you and S.B. thought of this twist on the meme. I love how these turned out, even though (or perhaps because) they were challenging.

    haha You're not going to let me off the hook, are you? ;) I'll get started on Brandee, Tahlvin and Julian. I think I might want to do the rest of my dolls too…maybe.

    @S.B.: Thanks so much! It's a wonderful, characer-building exercise and really helped me fill in some gaps in my characters' backgrounds and personalities.

    Yeah, I thought "Vocation/Career" fit better then "What I want to be when I grow up" since most, if not all of our characters are adult. I think the meme was started for teens or YA who don't have a career yet.

    I would love to see how the rest of your dolls turn out in mosaic. Viktor, Hale, Jason! The list is long and distinguished. And fascinating.

    It is hard but so rewarding and enlightening. I learned quite a bit I didn't know when I did them.

  6. Kiwi says:

    It's amazing how you get the mosaics to "match" in their colors. It looks very organized… you can see the distinct styles of each of the characters.

  7. Kara says:

    @gayl: It would be fun to see what all of their mosaics would look like. It may take me awhile though since I'm slow compared to you and Beth. ;) I did finish Tahlvin's mosaic last night and it's so perfect for him! I can't wait to start Brandee's.

    @Kiwi: This time around, instead of leaving it to chance like I did with my personal mosaic, I took care to choose complimentary colors based on what the character's favorite color was. I wanted the mosaics to look like a cohesive whole. I'm glad it worked! Thank you! :)

  8. Ju says:

    Aww, I love this. Especially Emily's. I don't know, I just connect with it. Now I want some fettucini alfredo.

  9. Kara says:

    @Ju: Thank you! Yeah, I always got really hungry after looking at all the food pictures for this meme. haha!
