Hello, I am very much new to this whole Perler Bead thing, but I decided to make a few for Christmas presents this year, and ... well... after that I couldn't stop. Here are my humble attempts, although they seem rather out of place with all of the crazy ones I've seen on this forum! I apologize if the pictures are too small, this is my first time posting images on a forum.


The ones above are the ones I did for Christmas presents. I couldn't find the larger squares at first, so most of them are done on very tiny pegboards. The yoshi, rydia and devout were made, obviously, after I got the larger pegboard. My boyfriend made the Yoshi.


Adventure was one of my favorite games growing up, so i made the duck dragons and the dot with the "arrow". And I realize that the red dragon is backwards. ... too bad I didn't realize it before i glued the magnets on the back ^_^


These are just a few random final fantasy ones that I did.


Quick Boomerang Mega Man, Crash Man, and Panser from Super Mario Bros. 2.


More Final Fantasy ones. I apologize for the fact that Rydia is in almost every one of these pics. She's my favorite.


And more Final Fantasy ones. A Piscodemon/Wizard, small Rydia and small Edward.


I know everyone knows what the one on the right is, but the one on the left is from a game called Cheetahmen II. For those of you who don't know about it, it's one of the worst game ever made, it is incomplete, and I made it just because the game is THAT bad.

That's all I have right now. Everyone on these boards has such beautiful work, I hope to one day make a very gigantic crazy one, but for now I'm just going to practice with the small ones.

You're off to a really great start!

I really like the tiny Edward.

And don't worry about starting with smaller projects, you'll get the urge to tackle larger ones soon (hell, I've been doing this for less than a month now and I've already made a 10-board Storm Eagle).

Looking forward to seeing more!!

thanks everyone!

I actually made a few new ones today, but I haven't taken pictures of them yet. I didn't do any for two weeks or so because I was waiting for particular colors to come from perlerbeads.com and it took forever!

As far as the perler addiction goes, I did get extremely addicted to these right after I made the Christmas presents for my friends. I started making everything. Unfortunately, I have a bad back, and I can't sit for very long to do these, so I can't do as many as I'd like to.

And yes, Adventure was a great game. ^_^

Such a wonderful eclectic mix of subjects.

I'm happy someone knows what Cheetahmen II is. I love that game just for the horribleness of it. also, thank you for the compliment ^_^

Anyway, here are some more sprites that I did in the past couple of days. My Rydia obsession will become clear with this batch:



I know I did Bub from bubble bobble before, but someone asked me to make another one so I threw him in the picture as well.



Kain from Final Fantasy 4 and Ninji and Porcupo from SMB2.

I think I'm going to make something else tonight, just not sure what yet.

Way to go, they look great!

My boyfriend and I sat down tonight we worked on a few of them cause there really wasn't anything else to do around here... my camera battery just died though and is charging, so i'll post some more soon.

i really appreciate all of the wonderful comments. Everyone who posts their sprites here is so talented. I really love all of your work.

Excellent!! I don't know much about FF characters as I'm a bit more 'retro' lol (i.e. OLD!)

But the Rydia thing is waaaaaay cool!

Wonderful sprites! I'm a huge FFIV fan, and I love Rydia especially, and you've done a great job on her. XD I especially like how her portrait came out. I thought about doing one myself, but I didn't think it would come out well in beads -- I guess I was wrong! I gotta try one now.

Holy shnikies, Draggon Warrior! That's the first RPG I ever got into (sadly, yes, it wasn't Final Fantasy).
