Remember perler beads? Those little things you'd slap on a pegboard and then iron out to make some pretty art?

I decided to get a bunch of them and pick an old hobby of mine back up. I've gotten started with a little bit of a gift for Ruggahissy, plus a second request and then a little something-something just for fun.

Examples


It's been a pretty good start so far, but I crave more. That's where you come in.

I'll be taking requests to make things of your liking. Mario, Final Fantasy, Undertale, TV shows or what have you. These things take a lot of time, so I'm only accepting FIVE THINGS IN THE QUEUE at any given time before closing it.

Just like any other art thread here, requesting stuff is free and I'll make it as soon as I'm able (time and materials permitting; I'm already running low on yellow and black and will need to buy more beads shortly), but you can also purchase what I make if you want (I'm pretty much going to do this at-cost, only covering my ass on shipping and however much it takes to buy these beads... and that's like $2.50 for a bag of 1000 of them, so we're looking at maybe 25 cents a pop).

Anyway, I'll open up the queue for you guys. I'm just eager to start making some shit. Try to take it easy on the difficulty, okay? I'm still getting used to this. Try to keep it to 8 or 16 bit stuff if you can. Not like... 'photorealistic Elvis Presley'.

Maybe later, okay?

Update: I've opened a shop on Etsy! https://www.etsy.com/shop/8BitTrinkets?ele=shop_open
Another update: Etsy shop currently closed <_<

The prices don't take shipping into account, so it's actually a lil' bit cheaper to just directly deal with me on this site here. So if you're interested, do THAT instead.

Completed requests:

Chopper (SOLD)
Jyushimatsu (SOLD)

Kefka Palazzo
Madotsuki
Mob

Moogle
Papyrus (Sold)
Frisk (SOLD)
Isaac
Sans (Sold, but have one more)
Fallen Human (SOLD)
And more!

Thanks!

I really want to finish the Bill Cipher but it'd be kind of an in-depth project. We gotta get pipe cleaners for his noodly limbs and then I have to make the top hat separately (which, again, will take a bunch of black beads (about 20-25) and I'm running low on black. Might run to Michael's today or something. So that'd be something that Iktor probably finishes if she hangs him up at work or summat.

Gotta get some fleshy flesh beads for these two designs, shouldn't be TOO long. I should figure that 'tan' is going to be an important color.

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.

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.

*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 >_>
