Morning/Afternoon/Evening (delete as appropriate) all!

I took up bead spriting not too long ago after finding, quite randomly, a few creations on flickr. I had been looking for a physical spriting medium, and have done cross stitch before, but it wasn't quite my cup of tea, and this works for me.

Little did I know there's a whole community on this! So, decided to join, and here I am.

As for actual projects, I'm currently working on finishing two off, but I'll get round to displaying the components of one of those shortly (going to take better photos of them and thumb them, etc). I started off buying a mix bag of mini-beads and boards to test out, and did a couple of things in that (see below), and now have moved on to midi beads.

So here're my first attempts. I have improved (a bit) since then.


Megaman and Heatman from Megaman 2, in Mini-beads

A mushboom from the Seiken Densetsu series in Mini-beads

Megaman X in Midi-beads

Will post more once I've got better photos and created a thread over on the other section of the board.

Cheers!

Great start. Seems you've done a good deal of research before jumping into bead sprites, cause your work is way cleaner than most people when they start out. Not to mention, you've already been diving into mini-beads, which a lot of us haven't even done yet.

Keep up the good work!

Thank ye kindly, sir. Also want to say I'm in awe of your work, amazing stuff.

Re the mini-beads, they definitely require patience, although mainly because I had a mixed bag and it took so long to fish out the colours I wanted (only to find that I'd find a better colour two seconds later ;) ). I think I may at some point get some colour specific bags for mini and do keychains and such.

I'd definitely get the single bags if I were you. Seems you've already gotten into Mini beads, so you might as well run with it. I know most of us on the forum work soley with midi's, and even those of us who dabble with mini's work primarily with the midi beads. You'd be the only one working in primarily minis, which are way better for keychains and large sprite magnets. Hell, open an ETSY store while you're at it, haha.

Anyways, glad you're on board, and thanks for the kind words as well...
