Bit-Bead Kickstarter Sprites

red-sword-bit-bead cute-chicks-bit-bead low-battery-bit-beadThe guys over at BitBeads.com are kickstarting a new case for the iPhone that allows you to create 21×11 beadsprites inside of a special frame, and slide it into the case; it’s really cool stuff.

Inspired by the designs they had on the site, I made a few of my own, and it really made me wish I had one of my own to put on my phone. My 10 year old daughter gave me the stink eye when she saw I made the little baby chicks piece, but I assured her that I also made a sword, so the balance was maintained. =)

Go check out the kickstarter and help fund it!

Chaos, the final boss from Final Fantasy

I had been itching to make something a little bit bigger than I have made so far. Last posts Bald Bull was one of the bigger ones, and I figured the time had come to make the final boss from Final Fantasy as my biggest Perler creation yet.

I had originally planned to make him last out of all the Final Fantasy Perlers set that I am working on, but I just recently purchased a ton of bags of beads and wanted to do something that posed a challenge, and Chaos was definitely up to the task. I will create another post about this with some of the progress pictures of the steps I had to take to get him completed.

Posed with Chaos is, of course, Garland who I am now realizing hasn’t been posted on this page yet, but was featured on my “indefinitely on hold web comic”, FightMagicDrinkItemRun.com . Also posed are the defeated Warriors of Light, who went to visit Chaos before they were prepared. =)

Bald Bull Punch-Out! Arcade

bald_bull_punch-out_perlerI made a new boxer from Punch-Out! to join Glass Joe. He has really intense eyes, he looks at you like he really wants to give you that signature Bald Bull uppercut.

This beadsprite took forever to iron out; at least 45 minutes, and the paper took on a “wet” quality that made it difficult to run the iron over smoothly. I had to do a little repair on it to fill in gaps between beads, too, but I am really pleased with the end result.
