Nitpick: Mega Man's mouth is one pixel too long on the left.
He's just making a face because he is unimpressed with your nitpickery.

Ha ha, sort of. I was showing my son Google image search results for Wood Man to find out what pose he wanted me to recreate. He scrolled through a few before landing on this custom job somebody made and insisting I do this one instead. The things we do for love!

Experimenting with large-format color photos by way of Commander Benjamin Sisko. He's so shiny!



In case you're worried that this is literally all I do anymore, I've streamlined my process to the point where this takes me a few two-hour sessions per week (one session per third).

Huh, and here I could've sworn he made captain before he got the bald/goatee look.

I've never been clear on the nomenclature. He's commander of the station and captain of the Defiant, right? Or is captain an all-encompassing rank.

He gets promoted. (This is confusing because people hardly ever change rank in the series. Poor Ensign Kim.)

Riou took two attempts and I needed to use brown instead of dark gray (released the same week I finished this) for Luca Blight.

Were those shivam's birthday present? If so I saw them briefly in person and they looked great. (If not, someone else in the bay area had a very similar idea at a very similar time.)

Yep, they were!

Sorry I didn't get a chance to really say hi; I was in a game when you came in and you were out of there again kinda fast!

Why isn't Mega Man using the Quick Boomerang???

(Fantastic work, I've definitely been tempted to make that dragon myself but it's a huge project.)

Maybe, but I've got enough to worry about without having to mash the button too.

The captain from Xenogears, a gift for my brother's birthday — and for his upcoming training cruise, as he is

a man

of the sea!



And a li'l Ochu, for my wife.



Forgive the crappy photos.

Thanks!

If anyone has a Joanne nearby, they have a 25% off sale on all Perler stuff for the next few days.

Those are rad! And Jo-Ann has some pretty ridiculous deals on a consistent basis, it's how they keep the hook baited. Works on me.

To wit: their website seems to have all 1,000-bead packs discounted to $1.74, with free store pickup for colors that they sell at stores. I think I'm going to use this as an excuse to stock up.

Also it looks like the company has unveiled some neat new in-between colors. I'd be interested to find the hex values for these so I can incorporate them into my palette. Having a couple new shades of gray in particular will be amazing for my monochrome stuff.

The Mana sprites are excellent. Looks like higher color depth than the source material (e.g. the shading on Tropicallo). Is that improvisation, or were you working off enhanced sprites? (Or is my memory just bad?) Whatever the case, the results are fantastic.

Thanks! Tropicallo is off a sprite rip I found; I matched the colors on the printout as closely as I could with the beads I had. The shading is quite detailed; I didn't add anything. There was a LOT more purple than I expected, especially on the pineapple.

The only thing I wish I'd done differently is a lighter gray instead of clear on the sword; I had just gotten a new tray of beads and didn't spot it.

Very pretty!

Do you make your Perlers with your kids? Seems like a natural fit.

Not these ones, but my son really likes making fancy patterns with big beads, and my daughter's made a few things (like a giraffe) with small ones.
