Feckless Friday: Pixel Picture Challenge

Feckless FridayWe missed the Feckless Friday challenge last week because I was having trouble finding an aerial challenge that wouldn’t just stomp the ever loving shit out of you.

In my part of the world it is still Friday so here’s a last minute idea I just had for today. I took an image and applied pixelation that effectively reduced the original down to a grid of 12 x 12 colors.

That’s 144 clues for you to work with.

Shown here is what I came up with.

Can you identify what is pictured in this image?

I’ll post the answer on Monday. If you think you know what it is feel free to comment on this post with your guess.

Good luck! 🙂

  1. Mona Lisa? That’s what I thought when I first looked at it, anyway.

  2. Darn it! I wanted to be the first one to say “Mona Lisa,” but I see that unabridgedgirl beat me to it. It’s amazing how an arrangement of colored blocks immediately brought that most famous of portraits to mind. What would “Arrangement in Grey and Black” (AKA “Whister’s Mother) look like?

  5. Here’s another version of the Mona Lisa. I can’t take any credit for it other than I was smart enough to swipe it from the internet.
