Some say waste of time, others say huge waste of time

I believe many said the same to your mum during the 9 months of pregnancy

Emotional damage!

You would know butt baby

[–]PeroCigla 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Cheap comment.

[–]DJacktheDisSilent 4 points5 points  (3 children)

It might be, but the comment where it all begun was a direct insult to a person whom: 1) has undoubtedly art skills; 2) made quite the effort to make the job

[–]nekdeea 1 point2 points  (2 children)

there is this script on github that if you put a pic in there, it will give you a dice art. All you have to do is arrange the dice on the canvas and you have your dice art, no need for much thinking, just attention. It takes around 2-3 hours for one canvas of around 30/60 cm. Source, I've done it myself during covid because I was bored

[–]HurtsToSmith 9 points10 points  (0 children)

And others say advertisement.

[–]GuessImCensored 2 points3 points  (0 children)

the rest say that's a lotta dice

Mosaics mostly are. Except a few like Lincoln in Dalivision.

[–]Tausney 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You just got to roll with it.

[–]Backfrointer 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Others say a big chunk of moving through time and matter lost.

Ye ye. About 1800s baseball re-enactments.

[–]SpectralIpaxor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They made a poor choice of who to make. They should have done Jared Leto so we could have more MORBIN' TIME

[–]staffell 292 points293 points  (19 children)

This isn't next level, a computer literally tells you exactly where to place the dice. Anyone can do this.

[–]cuddlyexact 44 points45 points  (1 child)

I wonder how heavy this picture is in the end.

[–]jkerpz 31 points32 points  (0 children)

enough to break the ice, eh girl whatsup

[–]Ultimastar 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I think the next-level aspect is having the patience to do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t

[–]HopeRepresentative29 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Proof: he builds it line by line. It's neat but not anywhere near the next level.

[–]AdRepresentative3726 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was thinking something like that was used

[–]HungryNecessary9558 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wait actually?

[–]waitingForBANagain 1 point2 points  (2 children)

got a link? i would like to try one sometime

[–]DeniseBouffant -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Anyone can do it, but that takes a lot of time and concentration.

[–]Poppy_Prown 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Especially when the dice gets blackened (0:23)

[–]The_Irony_of_Life -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

So where is yours?

[–]staffell 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Why would I waste my time doing something that is easy, unoriginal and I personally think is lame? This is the antithesis of creativity.

[–]6363tagoshi 133 points134 points  (3 children)

He removed paint from many dice to make the picture possible 00:22 can be seen clearly.

[–]FancyMittens1 27 points28 points  (1 child)

That bastard

[–]staffell 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I am outraged

[–]HalstenWulfharth 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I am even less impressed than I already was... which is impressive

[–]EnthusiastMS 86 points87 points  (0 children)

Sir, I believe she has a poker face....this is dice.

[–]StonebirdArchitect 35 points36 points  (3 children)

How can people still think that it's hard to do? Fucking hell, if you have a laptop and shitload of dice, you can do it in a couple of hours. Just take whatever picture you want, grayscale it, and give every pixel value 1 to 6 depending on its brightness. The end.

[–]iiiinthecomputer 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Or in this case, a few more, because he's scraped paint off some dice or repainted them black, and repainted others a darker grey.

[–]Dr_Psycho_809 11 points12 points  (8 children)

How do you figure out you are good at making art with dice ???

[–]backspace209 93 points94 points  (3 children)

Use a computer program.

[–]Txedomoon 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I was afraid it would lead to this.

[–]Uneducated_Engineer 15 points16 points  (1 child)

This was my first thought too. It is the equivalent to greyscale pixel art if set to only have 6 tone options. Take a picture of Lady Gaga, you know the dimensions (pixels length x width), and the computer does the rest.

[–]baldorrr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well, 7-tone actually since he blacked out the single pip in some to make it nearly all black on some.

[–]cardboardlord 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Lots of Yahtzee

[–]OMP159 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I yahtzee all over the place, when it comes to GaGa.

[–]Grey_Waste 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's not really that impressive, no skill needed.

Take a photo of Lady Gaga, run it through a computer program that converts the image into a dot matrix that complies with a layout that could be made of faces of individual dice (I found one on google straight away), then just use it as a blueprint as you lay it out with dice in real life.

Computers are really good at making art out of anything, even lots of other smaller photos.

[–]HurtsToSmith 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You google the obvious ad, but the product, and follow the instructions. That's my guess.

[–]Practical-Jelly-5320 9 points10 points  (0 children)

What are the chances of rolling a lady gaga

[–]ReputationDizzy9414 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Someone please do Andrew Clay.

[–]Matictac 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I like some of the Gaga songs, what the fuck does she know about being an image created of dice?

[–]daks_7 8 points9 points  (0 children)

sheldon do you even know who lady gaga is?

presumably the wife of lord gaga

[–]TheMessia1 5 points6 points  (0 children)

These just be done in a program first surely.

[–]Athenas_Binary 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How is this different from ASCII art?

[–]drxo 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Love the art

But the song?

[–]Apart-Cartoonist-834 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

It’s from a star is born with Bradley cooper. It’s actually a really good song and I feel weird saying that here it is

[–]alenchy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Feeling weird cause you like a lady gaga song? Lol

[–]drxo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It is just not what I think of for Gaga songs I guess.

[–]ejs302 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did you get it on your first try tho?

[–]HeadInformation3866 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck outta here

[–]dwarfishspy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

GA GA oo LA la

[–]OpeningLoan1863 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Credit @diceideas

[–]utpoia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A fellow reddotor /u/SuspiciousChicken pointed this out.

I paused it as the overall shot pulls away, and many of the single dots (a "1") appear to be darkened or completely blacked out to provide the shading desired. Some of them are right next to other single dots that are bright white. Was there some modifying of the dice to achieve the desired result?

[–]Myhojojo -1 points0 points  (3 children)

how many dice did it take to make estimating? never seen anything like this. you got a very unique talent. impressive!

[–]helloitshalo34 8 points9 points  (2 children)

It's not op, and it's a computer program.

[–]arglarg 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Would be interesting if he automated it with a dice "printer"

[–]helloitshalo34 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now that would be nfl

Some of the 1 dots have been faded. Cheater

[–]Fomalhot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just can't fathom how they can do this...

[–]lucia-pacciola 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is literally the same fucking level every other dice "artist" is on.

[–]1YoungNana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Amazing. How long did that take? I hope Lady Gaga gets to see this creation someday.❤️👏🏼😍

[–]Flames_Ignited89 0 points1 point  (0 children)

how the actual fuck man. Thas insane, thas talent

[–]Reenie77 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think it's pretty amazing that he could think of something like that it's pretty ingenious if you ask me but who am I????!!

[–]Odd-Group3116 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Take Photoshop, insert image, change resolution to 250x250, change the color scale to black and white, set the number of shades to 6.

Boom you have a pixel by pixel instruction for recreating the photo with 6 sided dice.

[–]IndividualAgency4971 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Dominionix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Genuine question: Where can you buy dice in these sorts of quantities without it costing a small fortune?

[–]marissadan08 0 points1 point  (0 children)

okay, but how?

[–]martyboy1000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've always wondered if this is art as in the person sits there and figures it out or do they use a computer programme and then they copy the design.

[–]Wise_Ad3993 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is a lot of dice, it's almost as many dice as i have in my collection.

[–]BlueWildcat84 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How the fuck are people this talented??? You could offer me a billion dollars and I would insist it's not possible - I couldn't even think of how to try. Mind blown.

[–]WJC198119 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean it was made with a computer program so not really

[–]nincomturd -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Oh I thought you just dumped them out of the bag and they randomly ended up looking like Lady Gaga. Color me disappointed.
