I think I would try to make the background look like one of those concrete and glass office buildings.
Looks good the way it is now too.

Yup, thats what made me think of it.
So might as well go all the way instead of an abstract hinting at it.

It's impressive how some flat tiles cut along predominantly straight-ish lines can resemble a person's facial bone structure so closely. I think the face looks more "structured" than the original character in the anime/manga/whatever it's called was in the first place.

Saturnalia Ornaments

Actually my girlfriend made the one in the centre, but I made one using the exact same colours which looks very similar, but which is not pictured here. I have 2 more in progress.

I like the one in the middle because the tiles are all equal size, it makes it look neater.
The others look hand cut and have varying sizes, which make them look a bit rougher.

The blue tiles on the one on the left were hand-cut by me. The white ones on it are the same as the white ones on the central ornament. The red and green tiles on the right-most ornament are actually factory-made and have a regular standard size. Those ones however are slightly larger (⅜" square) than the tiles on the central ornament so they don't have the same feel.

Oh yeah I guess those are the same size on the right.


Those ponies are nice.
Looks like she tried to sell one for 55 pounds and it didnt sell.
Then she set up the other at .99 pounds and it sold for 4.25 , wtf, postage would be more than that.

What do you with these mosaics, Natalya? Do you have a business going, or do just leave them lying around your house?

These are also very nice Mosaics btw.
