Who can make the minimal size puzzle of a RECOGNIZABLE real human person face?#2: Kristen Vognild (Kristen) on Jan 25, 2014
It can be a famous person or someone with more available photoes.
In my own solving history (cca. 15 years) the smallest was 20x25.
Could someone of you make it with less than 500 squares?
My smallest is 20x20 (18081), but it's also cropped.#3: Kristen Vognild (Kristen) on Jan 25, 2014
It also depends what you mean by "recognizable." I've seen Abraham Lincoln and Marilyn Monroe done in very small grids (10x10 or 15x15) and still be recognizable.#4: Thomas Genuine (Genuine) on Jan 25, 2014
My examples: 15197 and 19026 (4 tiny portraits for the price of one)
OK. There's not an exact meaning of recognizable.#5: Thomas Genuine (Genuine) on Jan 25, 2014
I thought not for "expressive" parts, like Chaplin's hat, Lennon's glasses, Lincoln's beard etc., but realistic graphical faces.
Usually it's impossible in 10x10 or less than 15x15. But there are really excellent artists here: Kurt, Aldege, Linda etc. Perhaps they (or some else) can do! :)
I found #18081 can be better Jim Morrison than Tom Cruise, so this is not a valid competitor! :)#6: Thomas Genuine (Genuine) on Jan 25, 2014
#15197 (Mt. Rushmore) is too big although too minimalist to real recognize! It can be the Deep Purple (whitout Jon Lord), too! :)#7: Norma Dee (norm0908) on Jan 25, 2014
Show us what you mean. Put your money where your mouth is.#8: Kurt Kowalczyk (bahabro) on Jan 25, 2014

oops, I missed the "real person" part of that...got quite a few decent 20x20 fictional ones though. just published a 20x25 real one for ya#10: Thomas Genuine (Genuine) on Jan 25, 2014
OK, "real person" can be a real painting, sculpture, too. Although, cartoon characters are invalid! :)#11: Brian Bellis (mootpoint) on Jan 26, 2014
I did a Marilyn puzzle in a 10x10(#13766) that was an homage to Kai's excellent puzzle #13743#12: Thomas Genuine (Genuine) on Jul 5, 2014
#25009 is 7x10 :) (I'm Manuel, i came here by a Genuine link)#13: Thomas Genuine (Genuine) on Jul 5, 2014
