So I just started in the fun world of bead sprites. However since im a video game addict, this seems to go along perfectly with that addiction.

Below are the first two bead sprites I have ever made.

Kirby:


Link:


So far thats all I have photographed. I just finished one of sonic for my little sisters birthday present that I need to get ironed and then will take some pictures of that. Then I am going to start on doing every Super Smash Bros Brawl character, while also working on the Pokemon cause my girl thinks their cute.

At some point, I am going to start incorporating Hama/Fuze beads in with the perler beads as well, to get more color variations so I can make them look even better. For now I am just working on improving my overall technique of things.

Looking good so far. Just wondering about that Kirby, since in the picture it looks like lighter pink near the edges and darker in the middle which, if I'm not mistaken, most sprites of Kirby get darker towards the edges. Did you use semi-transparent beads for the middle? If you view it on a white surface it should look good. Also, as far as your Brawl characters, were you planning to use your own custom sprites or use one of the series' online? I did some awhile back and they came out pretty well but I wish I had done the outlines like I did for my Soul Calibur 2 Girls. Ivy turned out especially well for me. Anyways, looking forward to seeing more stuff from you.

Yeah I used transparent beads in the middle, thats why it looks darker right now.

As for the Brawl characters. I'm really not too good at creating my own custom ones at this point, im still working off sprites etc. So when I was going through everyone elses work, I saw a link to a guys DA page where he had a sprite for each Brawl character. I was going to try working with those, to see what I can come up with.

yeah, smallest one will use at least 6 peg boards. I'd definitely like to see someone try out a few of those so I say go for it. Only problem I can see is color selection, you're going to have to drastically cut back on availability since most of the sprites use a lot of shades of the same color. Good luck tho, I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Those would be the ones, the guy on DA who did them all, and then put them together in one big scene. I just need to buy a few more pegboards and I can get started. Until then, my OCD friend and girlfriend will be sorting beads for me! haha

So I just finished the ones I was working on for my sisters birthday present. Originally I had made her sonic...



But when asked what her favorite video game character was, she said pacman...



I know both are probably very much over done, as their common sprites, but I enjoyed them, and my sister will enjoy them even more.

Enjoyment of the completed work is huge.
Thats what keeps you coming back, having a tangible
piece of your history, that, with a little work, will be near perfect.

Welcome to the group, look around at other members works and get some ideas, and, like some of us, feel free to fuse your own sprites as well, like this Naga.

Agree'd about the finished product.

I'm working on a big project and I just love how it feels after I finish a chunk of it and see progress! Smile

Wow, I haven't posted anything in awhile.

My sister loved her pacman magnets for her birthday, was all sorts of excited about those.

Since my girls birthday is coming up, and shes a huge Zelda fan, im about to undertake a Zelda project. Although, im not sure what all its going to entail yet. If anyone has suggestions, please feel free to put them out there.

How epic are you looking to go with this sprite? Or is simple and cute all you need?

Zelda is by far my favorite video game. I have 4 Zelda themed tattoos to prove it, too. I would suggest something with multiple pieces from one of the earlier games - either the original, The Adventure of Link or a Link To The Past. That way, you can do something along the lines of Link holding up a heart container for Zelda, or something, haha. I dunno, which characters does she like the best? Which game is her favorite?

Ocinara of Time is her favorite one I believe and she doesnt really have a favorite character. I also picked up two more boards today, and more beads.

Gorons are always fun. Or you could do a scene of Link and Zelda in the Hyrule Temple garden as kids. All depends on how sentimental you want to get.

Hmmm, a scene sounds interesting, I may look into that.

The beauty of a scene is you can make multiple pieces. That way, you use less pegboards at a time, depending on how you arrange the layers. For example: lets say you have a grass layer in front, then a few bushes or flowers and a castle wall with a door in the background, with Zelda and Link between those three layers - if you had one solid piece for the scene you might need 16 or so pegboards for the whole thing, but with layers, you use 4 or 5 at a time for each layer.
