Vol'jin Photopearls by Ryuma5580 Vol'jin Photopearls by Ryuma5580
One day after browsing through the internet after troll related pictures, i figured that i wanted something i could call my own as well. After thinking a while about it, i realized: Why not?

The whole portait is 60x60cm big and is entirely made out of small plastic beads that you might have played with as a kid perhaps, but with the help of a program called "Photopearl" you can re-create real pictures by just using those small beads. Each plastic plate is about 15x15cm big and takes about 900pearls in order to fill and the whole portait is 16 plates big which means it took about 14400 pearls in total. To fill one plate takes about an hour to do if everything goes smoothly, but i had an accident with one and had to redo it which took an additional hour to make. Grand total, 17hours making not includning the days i've been extremely lazy.


The biggest question remains... Where should i hang it up?



Credits goes to Blizzard for the awesome troll race and of course the biggest credit goes to the artist who colored the best picture i've ever seen ([link]).


Edit: Curious how it looked like when it was all done? Have no fear, here it is! [link]

Thanks for posting the pictures - maybe for something bigger, you could do that one con painting of Thrall and Cairne rescuing kids? Just a thought. :D

Haha, think bigger indeed! But don't worry i got some pictures i've tested a little with my rendering program, but it might just involve a troll or two!

You captured Tony Wash's piece SO well! The colors are spot on, and the details you were able to achieve are amazing. Great work! :D

Lol, still looks awesome :) can't really see the raptor, but it's not really needed :)

It was either the choice of having both the troll and the raptor, but less detailed or focus it on the troll with higher focus. The choice was clear to me :D

Imagine the fun when one of the sticky paper got messed up and i had to manually pull each bead off :D

Oh my god, I totally sympathize. My biggest perler thingies only took up like 3 boards, and even THAT messing up was awful. I don't even want to think about the challenges with something like this. x.x

Are they translucent? Because that would make an awesome window.

Sadly no, but i know there are beads that are translucent that you could probably put up on your windows, but i don't think they work very well with making portait like this one. They are probably pretty cool to use for smaller things
