We have over 400 cans of different types of coke, and we want to represent a image of Tux.

We have used them for representing a chrismas greeting, you can see it and the make off here:

Does anyone know where can we find a pixelated image of Tux that we can use as some kind of template for this?

Any further help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Just get the black and white Tux from Larry Ewnig's page, load it in GIMP, downscale without any interpolation to about 50px and upscale without interpolation to 500px. You will get a beautifully pixelated Tux :)

I think this is the page bgerlich mentioned:

And my take on his idea:

I used 100px then upped to 100px for more detail.

Thanks to all for the replies :)

I've done the downscale with 21x25 (we only have about 500 cans) and the result is very "undefined".

Maybe with another image...
