1K Tiny Mona

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Even after giving Rob some guff about not optimizing his image – he was kind enough to append my comment to the original 1K Competition post. So, I decided to take the challenge and create a real 1K entry.

Tiny Mona

Tiny Mona (1k)I wanted to take the competition as literally as possible, but I am no wordsmith. So I decided to create an image – a 1K reporduction of the famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci. The image to the right was “hand drawn” with a mouse using only the pencil tool in photoshop. I used this image as a reference, but did not resize or trace it.

  • Image Size: 25×40 = 1000 pixles
  • File Size: Exactly 1000 Bytes

And yes, I used PngSlim for maximum compression. It took a lot of trial-and-error to get exactly 1K.

Check out the detail

Here is a larger version (html resize of same file). I like how the small version looks pretty good, but in the larger one she begins to resembles a creepy robot. Tiny Mona (1k)
