I was going to do some FZERO cars and make them into magnets for a friend. But it seems like a bit much to take on.

I was trying to convert the sprite to graph paper so I could have it at easy access but it's over 40 long. I didn't know if this would be a good idea or not. Don't wanna do too big of a project at first and then get sick of it.

Any tips or some sprites I should start with?

Just start with a little sprite for now, like a Mario Mushroom or Fire Flower or a little NES era Link.

Download a .gif, open it in photoshop or MS PAINT & zoom in as much as you can. You don't need graph paper.

Then just eyeball it to copy it on a pegboard with the beads.

You can make big ones after you get good at little ones.

I know this may not need to be said, but start out with what you have the beads for... I started out with my Laharl knowing that I didn't have ALL the beads and consequently he just sat there on my tabletop waiting yearning to be completed... and until I got a credit card, and an ebay account I had to wait... and make Final Fantasy, Mario bros, and the Legend of Zelda... stuff I like... which brings me to Step 2:

After you've made stuff that you have the beads for, start making stuff you like... Welsh-Wuff likes pokemon, so he makes pokemon... you just got to find your niche...

I'm going to do some Mario and Zelda stuff for starters and give the ones I don't keep to my friends as magnets or whatever. I'm just trying to find a space I can set up in right now. Some friends and I used to do this a long time ago, so I have been digging out my stuff seeing what I still have. I'm going to need to get some more beads, but it won't be much. I'm just going through sorting them and now madly searching for things to put them in that I can't knock off the table and send them to the floor, which has happened twice today and is so much fun. Smile

I'm just looking forward to getting started.

side note: Zaghrenaut that Laharl looks awesome. A year ago I spent WAY too much on a copy of Disgaea.

With what to put them into, I recommend either small tupperware containers or a tacklebox... I've used both, but recommend the tacklebox... I have one that has 48 compartments that hold aprox 1200 beads... I'll take some pictures and post them in the "where do you keep your beads?" section...

and About Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, I think I've spent about 230 hours on that game from the time it came out... in the nippon itchi world second to Phantom brave at 280 some hours...
