Excitebike Perler fridge magnet set.

20150326_181904It’s not often that you see the background objects of videogames featured in art projects. I liked that the game Excitebike included things like cameramen and pit-crews in along the track. I really like the hard green borders they have, too.

I’ve been working on a ton of fridge-magnets for the reddit gift exchange, and for another project to finally sell some of my art for the people who keep on asking. =) I’ll be updating the page soon with a whole series on magnet stuff soon.

 

The Final Fantasy misfits.

20150314_230715You know by now how many Final Fantasy Perlers I have made already. Apparently I can’t stop making them. =)

Right to left is a cross dressing Black Mage (assuming the White Mage is female), A Fighter with Cloud Strife’s uniform and hair, and Orko from Masters of the Universe.

I made these, and more for a new Perler refrigerator magnet series that I will give more info on next post. I’m working on some more tutorials, too that should be complete by the end of March.

 

Mappy characters and items.

20150121_112825 20150121_112739I wanted some smaller sprites to make, and after making the Burgertime set, I thought these would be good candidates. I love the little object sprites, especially the Mona Lisa one. I will likely be making more of those for fridge magnets or keychains.

Mappy is one of those games that shows up on the little joystick consoles, or Namco collections. It’s not my favorite game of all time, but it’s fun for a few games before going back to Galaga or Pac-Man. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mappy

 

Burgertime refrigerator magnet set.

burgertime-magnetsThe first time I played Burgertime was at Magic Mountain in California around 1984. Your character “Peter Pepper” would walk on top of giant food, and mash it down to the lower level of the maze structure until you built a complete hamburger, and the hot-dog, fried egg, and pickle-chip would try to knock you out.

It had the trope of ladders and beams just like Donkey Kong, but instead of jumping, you would throw pepper in the enemies face to stun them, and if you could time it right, you could also make them “ride” the hamburger ingredients, or squash them; fun stuff.

It was such a weird concept for a videogame, but I was enamored. I get the song from the game stuck in my head all the time. Every section of the hamburger is independent, as to be rearrange-able. I really like the way this turned out, and it looks awesome on the fridge.
