Not sure if anyone has seen this...pretty cool! A poster of this would look great in the game room.
Just a few too many dice chips in the darker areas though :LOL: :laugh:

Wow, I see a bunch of really nice chips in there. Mixed in with really crap chips, too. I wonder if the artist would, ah, substitute some of the chips in there with some inoffensive dice chips or super diamonds in exchange?

If you look closely it appears no actual chips were used in the making of the poster. You can't see any edges of the chips and they look very flat

A closer look at the clay chips gives the hint that always one chip is used over and over again. Edge spot, inlay shape is identical on the $25 Proteges.

I dunno. I see shadows caused by chips placed on top of other chips. I think it's real.

I will say, as someone who uses photoshop daily, creating a shadow for each chip so it casts down on the ones below it is easy. My guess this is a software that uses individual images and layers them to match the photo colors. It could be done with photoshop by manually putting in each one then duplicating it, but that’s an ENORMOUS task

very cool if real. wonder why he replaced the Mirage with "Casino" maybe trademark reasons? The Sands chip can't be real. That is a $10k+ chip.

Have you guys ever watched "Don't F*$K with Cats" on Netflix?

1. If you haven't - DO!
2. If you have, when the lady talked about websites with geeks who know everything about everything for the vacuum she was looking for. Both my daughter and my wife immediately said "your poker forum" :eek: :ROFL: :ROFLMAO: :eek: :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:
