I've been working on a large, detailed cross stitch of a semi-well known Ps1 game cutscene. Thus, I haven't had much time for smaller stitchings in order to post somewhat regularly.
But, in preparation for a detailed "this is my house/gaming setup" post, I've been working on covering my fridge in game-related magnets.
It's the only room in the house not already completely plastered with gaming images and/or logos, so it needed a bit of filling.
The thing is... I'm out of ideas.
(See my previous blog for most of the stuff I've stitched in the past)
Nintendo is overdone, but old-school Nintendo games are so wonderfully easy to stitch due to their already small size and wonderfully uncomplicated nature. The sheer simplicity makes it a quick project while still looking good.
So, what do you think? Any older sprite-based games that you think deserve a place on my fridge?
After seeing a lot of interesting collections pass by on the main page over the last few months, I finally decided to share my own strange habits with you all.
I haven't had much time to work on these projects as of late, but here's some of my older works.
Sorry about the mostly blurry images, but I no longer own most of these.
They've either been given as gifts, or sold.
I make my own patterns using sprite-based graphics. Since they're already pixelated, they transfer well to gridded cross stitch patterns. :)
These come from anime and video games alike.
Bub and Bob from Bubble Bobble/Bust a move.
This one took about 2 hours to make.
Alexiel from the anime Angel Sanctuary.
I can't recall how long it took, but it was at least 2 1/2 hours.
Chrono from Chrono Trigger.
Felicia from... Well, a lot of games. But I think I took that sprite from Puzzle Fighter.
My traditional starting group for Final Fantasy (1).
About 3 hours of work.
Fuu Houoji from the anime Magic Knight Rayearth. Made into a pillow.
This took a whopping 34 hours to make.
Ice climbers. :)
Again, about two hours of work.
Inu Yasha, from the PS1 fighting game.
Those poofy pants brought that work up to over 9 1/2 hours. O.o
So much red...
Kefka! From Final Fantasy 6/3.
About 10 hours of work.
One of my favorite works yet. And I gave it to an awesome Kefka cosplayer at a con one year.
Kirby. Given as a christmas present.
2 hours seems to be the average for works this size.
"Leon" (Squall) from Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories.
11 1/2 hours.
Given as a christmas present as well.
Link! From a fan-sprite.
Various. Most of these were given as christmas presents.
(Some shown before)
Ryo-Ohki -- 2 Hours
Tonberry -- 3 Hours
Sailor Jupiter -- 4 Hours
Catgirl -- 4 1/2 Hours
(Catgirl based on random image floating around the net, as per request. I made her into a sprite, then stitched her up.)
Morrigan and Lilith. Sprite taken from Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
Over 15 hours.
Protoman! (3 hours.)
Another request. Raphael.
Sheena from Tales of Symphonia (?).
Yet another request.
My other favorite. 4 hours well spent.
A succubus from Disgaea.
These last few were all stitched onto onsies, and are being modeled by my son.
