Sure, I'll bounce something by you later. Probably won't be too expensive, since you're in the US and I'm still basically doing this at-cost. I just want people to be able to enjoy the creations physically.

Pikachu, spoilered for size


So, notes on this one? I guess this is more like Gen II Pikachu rather than Gen I, but I guess he's still kinda chubby and hasn't conformed to society's standards of beauty, so I'm going to count it. I was also considering doing the Gameboy colors on this one (that are kinda funky and have more red around the ears and stuff) but decided against it for simplicity's sake. Plus, it looks nicer this way. Also this thing is HUGE, needing all four pegboards to fit properly. M:tG card for scale, as well as a more standard project.

That is absolutely adorable.
If I could sort out my freakin' Paypal I would buy it. but alas alack I cannot.
You don't win the game of death by dying first. The name's a little misleading.

Kefka, spoilered for size


Alright, so, Kefka. Hoo boy. A few notes on Kefka.

The size: Kefka is mercifully small; by bead count, he is easily the second or third smallest project (after Elesh Norn). This was such a great mercy to me because...

The palette: Good god almighty, Kefka's colors are deceptively hard to figure out. He's operating off of the weird SNES 256 color palette which has some strange tans, browns and greys I can't possibly account for with my beads. I did the best I could to approximate his hair but bounced between three different sets of skin tones for his face before settling on one that didn't make him look like Kim Kardashian. The body was significantly easier, but Kefka is wearing more yellow trim than I remember him wearing, which is a pain for somebody who is almost completely out of yellow after making that gigantic Pikachu.

So, true to form, Kefka was adept at making me hate everything, but now that he's done I quite like the look of him.

Madotsuki


Not super proud of this one. Madotsuki was a hassle for a few reasons. Assembling her was a bit difficult because her sprite has about four different shades of brown for her hair, while I've got two (at best) to work with. However, at the end of the day I think I mostly got the colors right, simplification aside.

Unfortunately, Madotsuki is probably my first project where I really cocked up the ironing and the beads are overly flattened on both sides. I picked the side where the beads were more consistently melted rather than looking more patchwork (which the other side does). I also usually over-melt the first side I iron for structural integrity, something especially important with her as she has sensitive areas prone to falling apart (note her pigtails and hands). However, I forgot to flip her onto another pegboard so I could over-iron the back and instead did so to the front. Then her 'new' front melted less consistently and... yeah.

I think the queue is actually cleared for now. Huh.

Woah, Madotsuki looks awesome! Sorry for giving you such an inconvenient sprite to work with, but I think the result looks pretty nice. Thanks for taking the time to do this, it's super cool!

Kefka looks really amazing! The others do as well, though I am less familiar with the source material in those cases.

*offers a bow*

Basically everything else I've made is for sale, just in case anybody is interested. Most of them are going to be around $7.50 and I can give you my Paypal, though I think the Pikachu will be like 9 bucks instead (it's REALLY big).

Obviously, international deliveries would be a little bit tricky so... this is mostly domestic right now. Sorry guys >_>
