Beckham mosaic size - 5 large baseplates wide 1920mm (6' 4") x 2 large baseplates high 768mm (2' 6").
We did try to do a Victoria in an Andy Warhol pop art style but it didn't really work. In the end we used this style to do "Two Little Boys"; see below:-
Most of the work for the mosaics is done in Photoshop. The most important thing to do is to make sure that you are 100% happy with your image before you start building.
The movies are usually made with 3d Studio Max, although there is one being published later today that has been made using flash.
You should be able to build Victoria in the Syrups section of our website shortly - we'll include her in build-a-celebrity.
Thanks for all your interest.

jipay - to answer your questions ref 3d - my brother, Mike H (see below), does most of this and he drew the original minifig straight into 3d Studio Max. Subsequently, he has discovered LeoCad and does export some parts from that, although there are some problems. Here are his brief musings on the subject:-
"You export the file with the extension .3ds. When you import the file into 3ds max you may find that some of the faces are the wrong way round (basically it will look as though you have holes in your model). To correct this click on the model, go to the geometry rollout, in the selection section click on element, your model will turn red, scroll down the list until you get to surface properties, Normals: and click unify. This should leave you with a complete model".
Hope this makes some sense
PS Mike H has added a new syrup - go with the flow - so it should be possible to draw Victoria!

David Beckham looks good but he is not to popular in the Uk at the moment for some reasons <_< *cough* that penalty!
I would like to see more of your work, I love the two little boys! Rolf Harris, what a guy!

It's nice to see how you took in consideration the color problem. I agree with you, from a certain distance, we won't notice the use use of 2X2

For instance, making a square with 2 1X1 yellow and 2 1X1 red create a pixel that is orange from a reasonnable distance :)
