so let me explain really quick: you all know those mosaic pictures composed of hundreds or thousands of little pictures. well this is one made out of ~1'500 mega man screenshots. they're not completely random, however, they're taken from playthroughs of mega man 1 - 6 (one screenshot taken every x seconds). every stage is in there, from every classic nes mega man game.

the idea was to have one screenshot for every pixel of the mega man sprite and then have the sprite surrounded by the remaining screenshots.

now, in theory there shouldn't be any duplicates, i took just the right amount of screenshots - however, what you see here is actually a composite of several different mosaics and there's been a LOT of manual editing too, a lot of photoshop work etc. it's possible that several of the tiles show up twice or even three times. but the majority of the tiles are unique, even the ones that look very similar. took me several weeks to finish the whole thing.

i also made a little gallery with all the boxes and cartridges of all the games from every region (at the very bottom).

and there's what you could call a little easter egg in there (for my own convenience really :P ): two rows of screenshots at the bottom (surrounded by a black outline) that show all the weaknesses of robot masters, wily castle bosses and wily machines. all of those screenshots were edited by hand (and it took fucking FOREVER). you'll see it in the detail shots.

the whole thing was printed on canvas and mounted on a wooden frame. full size: 120 x 109 cm (that's about 4 ft tall).

you're giving me too much credit. the tiles for the sprite did have some slight color correction applied to them. it wouldn't have worked otherwise. however, i did consciously opt for only minor color changes (not more than +/-~20%), that's why it needed so much manual editing. the screenshots surrounding the sprite were slightly faded but otherwise had nothing done to them (except for some cropping).
