Presenting a pattern of Presidential pixel portraits! 44 of 'em, including Grover Cleveland twice , a little grayer and chubbier the second time (the 22nd and 24th presidency).

Here are some of the more notable ones:




This is three colors on black. See a BIG VERSION here.

Thank you guys!

I don't know why I haven't done much pixel art here, it's one of my favorite things.

Awesome. That's a 'high score' with presidential pixels, Spiritgreen.
Here's the music that came to my mind.

Very nice. Why is Obama the only one smiling?

It's killing me that this is not dominating the fog, and I'm not even American. I even got family members to drop some extra votes.

Because he's black!

(I always wanted to say this without being a racist! :D The white teeth are better visible on the dark face than a black line.)

Also, how is it this isn't in the fog anymore? That's ridiculous!

Can someone please explain what this "fog" is that everyone keeps talking about?

The fog is the top designs that have "?" for their vote counts, keeping everyone from knowing whose winning.

Thanks so much PP. This was a labor of love or madness and I'm thankful for every vote. America means a lot to me, I've visited many times and have always felt at home.

There's still the chance it'll get featured in the near-misses sale.

I wonder if people are missing the full details of the design while just glancing at the thumbnail... This is an amazing piece of work. You, sir, most certainly deserve a grill!

Thumbnails are hard! I almost went with a bunch of portraits but I was afraid people wouldn't be able to make it out clearly, so small.

Thanks for the compliment. :^)

I know I'm late to the party (I'm one of the people who stopped following the derbies a while ago), but this is pretty awesome. This design gave me two thoughts:
-That dubya-face is hilarious.
-"One of these presidents is not like the others."(sing-song)
