Real-life pixels

Hello people of Destructoid.

So, a few weeks ago, I came across this really awesome style of game-art, and this art is created with Hama beads (Perler beads if you're American ;D). This art work is like real-life pixel art! Its awesome! People sell this awesome art too!
Although, there's nothing more satisfying than creating some awesome art by yourself. So I decided to buy a crazy amount of these beads and create my own art. Seems i'm pretty good at copying pixels with beads. :P

So, here are my favourite two that I've created so far. If you click on the names, you can even see a video of me making them! So you can make them yourself ;D

Prinny (Disgaea) "DOOD"



But yeah! Has anyone here heard of this kind of art before? Or has anyone here created something awesome already from these Hama/Perler beads?

I thought these were pretty cool, and wanted to share them with people that might appreciate it. :P

Thanks for reading.

About Misstawniione of us since 7:59 AM on 05.22.2009

Well, my name is Shauni Maple. I am 20yrs of age. AND I FUCKING LOVE GAMES.

I've been playing video games since the age of three, and to this day I am constantly playing games; I am a hardcore fan of RPGs and JRPGs. However I do like classic point-and-click games, like Grim Fandango, Curse of monkey Island. Diskworld is pretty neat too. I have played every Final Fantasy game, and beaten 1 through 10-2. ;3 (Some 100%). And my boyfriend has gotten me into rhythm games like, DDR, Elite Beat Agents, etc etc.

The consoles I've own/ed are:
-Sega Megadrive
-Nintendo 64
-Playstation X
-Playstation 2 & PS2 Slim
-Gameboy colour
-Gameboy Advance
-Gameboy Advance SP
-Gameboy Micro
-DS Lite
-Xbox 360
-Playstation 3

... I think that is all of them. xD

My favourite Games are: Final Fantasy series, Kingdom Hearts Series, Eternal Sonata, Tales of saga, Chrono Trigger, any Mario games, Phoenix Wright Series, Pokemon <3, Grim Fandango, Sims, Rockband/Guitar Hero, Grand Theft Auto, etc etc.

But yeah, living in the UK is fun, due to being able to do Games Design at Bolton University <3 Game releases can be awful over here though!

Aswell as loving video games, I love anime, manga, drawing and anything Japanese really. :P I also love my wonderful Boyfriend of 4yrs and 5months, who is doing Computer Software and Development at Bolton University.
