Complete the sentence:

You know you're obsessed with making bead-sprites when...


"...you spend half of your day thinking about which sprite you're going to do next, and try to figure out which colors you'll use."
- Doctor Octoroc


I want to see what people come up with!

You know you're obsessed with bead sprites when ....

You sell them on etsy for like no profit. You just need to make room on your fridge for more.
You post about them on your own blog, your other blog and your other other blog.
You email Perler everyday to harass them to sell all their colours in individual bags. You also demand more colours to be made. Like another type of red or green.

You know you're obsessed with bead sprites when...

...the two sites you check the minute you get to the computer are Spriters' Resource and this forum.

...you contemplate starting up a business, not because you think it'll be at all profitable, but because you want to have some excuse to keep making sprites.

...your significant other's residence, in addition to your own, starts looking distinctly pixellated in decor.

There are probably many, many more of these to come. I'm just not all the way awake yet (see the first part of this list).

.... you're willing to sit for hours to separate all the beads from a 11,000 count bucket into their proper colours just to get the hard find ones.

You know you're obsessed with bead-sprites when...

...you no longer have vertical shelf space to display them anymore and have to make a portable wall to display the one's you have.
...you start making slain light warriors because all the other cool (non enemy) sprites from that game you've already made.
...your friend's start to wonder if you're insane because your iron is aways on the counter.
...you'd rather make something you just got the beads for, than sleep.
...the beads start to meow when you're not currently making a piece.
...you have a special *bead-sprite making room* in your house.
...you start saving cool looking jars and glasses because you could keep your extras in it.
...you specifically only buy the beverage for the jar.

Oh, how they are all true... and yes Linkjun I didn't want to copy yours, but around september-ish last year I called a friend's new car paint job Claret

Thanks, Z; after seeing your post my boyfriend has started meowing at me and blaming it on the beads.

See if I finish the huge-ass ugly Venasaur I'm working on for him....*grumble*

Oh yeah. You know you're obsessed with bead sprites when...

...you start getting interested in Pokemon solely because the sprites look like they'd be awesome to make.

Ditto on that one, that's why I started.

And you know your obsessed with Bead Sprites when...

You debate spending hours making 3-D versions of consoles you don't even like, just so some vg nerd at a show held once a year wont be able to say "You forgot to make a Sega CD."
