I’m trying to pixelate the Creighton Bluejay logo (yes, I have permission from the university) and I am running into a lot of challenges. It seems the design is too detailed with too many gradations of color that get lost in the pixel design.
I tried using the method on the free Craftsy class by Caro Sheridan. However she gives instructions using a Mac computer which I don’t have and while I was able to get so far in the process I would always get stalled before finishing the entire process. Plan B, I did manage to pixelate the photo (don’t remember how) and thought I was good to go.
I messed up when I tried to follow the picture without breaking down the grid so I ended up ripping out 6 rows. There are more colors in the photo than I am using and my choices weren’t always consistent.
Plan C, I started charting out the colors I planned to use:
And started piecing again, and still made mistakes. Which I didn’t discover until after I pieced several rows. Sigh.
So here is a more correct version:
It still appears that there is too much gradation to get a clear picture.
So I played with options coloring in excel. Plan D:
I’m still not so sure, so I thought maybe a simpler “C” would be better, Plan E?:
Plan F, scrap it?
Maybe I am over thinking this? Any suggestions?
Trying to take a step back. On the journey, Jackie
