I also sometimes make cute sclupy charms! Here are some plug charms for smart phones that I’ve made. Paopu fruit from Kingdom Hearts, Mario Mushrooms, and an assortment of Mameshiba. If you couldn’t tell, I’m quite the fan of cute mascot characters. I’m even working on a series of my own; Tako Niji! I’ll be posting more about it the more of it I get developed. Right now I have a roster of characters, some background, a few rough drafts of short comics and images. And the figurines of course, which are already available on my Etsy!

Mini Hama beads are really fragile if you try to make larger pieces with them. They are perfectly fine to make into jewelry and accessories. Here I have a Nasu (yume nikki) necklace, Minecraft Ocelot Earrings, Pokeball ring, heart container earring/necklace set, and cute 8bit pixel heart rings.

Mini Hama framed art pieces – Pixel Art Gallery

pixel art collection

Mini Hama Beads. They’re 1/4 the size of regular perler/hama beads and a huge pain in the butt to work with. On the upside, they flatten enough that you can put them into frames! Here are just a few pieces that I made – Shovel Knight, Samus w/Metroid, Squirt from Bastion, Felicia, Prince of the cosmos, Pocky from Pocky and Rocky (one of my favorite pieces). For the backgrounds I just used scrap paper that I had laying around with the rest of my supplies. I chose the ones with the streak patterns to try to give it some motion. The Pocky one is actually some sticky scroll fabric that I’d found at Daiso in Seattle. All of these are gone now, but I’m looking forward to making some more mini hama frames. 🙂

Oh, and to the left there you can see some Nasu (yume nikki) necklaces, metroid earrings, pokeball rings and a poro sprite that i’d also made.

HUGE Bead sprites! GlaDos and Alis

Alis alisandglados

Giant Bead Sprites. These are 2 more of the largest sprites I’ve done. I did a giant megaman a while ago for a video game shop and I’m pretty sure that was the largest I’ve done. The GlaDos (from Portal) sprite is approx 3″ tall. The other sprite is Alis from Phantasy Star. Also huge. My brain hurts when I think about how much time I put into these pieces. I didn’t even get paid for GlaDos. In fact, it’s still sitting on my shelf waiting for a new home..I know there are some Portal fans out there that would love to have this one of kind piece.

There are so many pieces like this that I want to do! I have a bunch of those striped two-tone beads and wasn’t sure what to do with them. People at the last show seemed to like it. 😉

Just some classic bead sprites

Megaman Figure custom QBert_Sprites Ridley Metroid Bead Sprite art Sonic and knuckles bead sprites

Posting some pics of some of the more classic sprites I’ve done. The megaman is on a platform that has sticky foam tape on the bottom. It’s a hood ornament. The person who ordered it didn’t pay for it, so it’s still around if anyone wants it. Let’s see, there are some Qberts, Ridley from Metroid, and Sonic and Knuckles. I should do some more Sega bead sprites soon. That would just make me so super happy.

Assorted anime bead sprites

Card Captor Kero Bead Sprite hatsune miku vocaloid bead sprite mamegoma_bead sprites puppycat_beadsprite

I don’t often do anime sprites, but when I do, they’re totally adorable.
Kero from Cardcaptor Sakura, Hatsune Miku, Mamegoma (cute characters by San-x, creators of Rilakkuma), and puppycat. I’ know puppycat is technically a web cartoon, but whatever, I wasn’t going to give such a small piece its own page.
