Beadsprites! Sprites made using beads! I do commission work, and have sold over the internet, in person, and at anime conventions.

First up is a world record full set of full color first generation Pokemon!

If you go to my flickr page, you get all sorts of "bonus" information, otherwise I'll post the small photos below.

The bacon strip I actually sold to Warky along with some Chocobos. he bought them before I could take any pictures, though :(.

And my pride and joy, custom mustaches! These were a HUGE hit at the convention I went to! People kept coming back to play with them!

    Do you have any goals as an artist? I mean honestly, these are cool but I know several people that do this. Aside from taking a lot of time, what I've been told is that it's pretty simple to replicate an image. I'm not saying it's necessarily easy, but do you have more originals? This forum is a great place to look for critique and to grow (:

    those magic coasters are really cool.

    I have posted a lot of this already at reddit, so chances are if you've seen them there, it was me :) check out r/beadsprites!

    They are fun to touch! And they're kind of bendy, too!

    Everyone seems to get a kick out of MissingNo.!

    Yep. All of them. All the ones that appeared in Red/Blue. So all of them. Because there certainly weren't more after Red and Blue. There were some cheap knock off games that tried to use the pokemon name and used ice cream cones as pokemon, but they were just cheap knock offs.

    I do have a few custom designed sprites and several up there don't actually appear in any video game. I try every now and then to create completely original stuff.

    For the Magic coasters, I debated a while about what colors to use for black (swamps). Should it have been all black with white skull? Black with grey? Obviously I went with grey with black skull in the end.

    I too pixels the arts. Good stuff. I think you should work on your heating methods. I was talking to people in Steam about it. Puzzle Glue and a nice Gloss Finish after low heats make for VERY stable, sturdy, and sexy looking bead-art.

    Other than that, awesome stuff. A lot of patience for some of the bigger ones. Those 1,000's of 'bixels' add up fast as shit, lol. (I call them bixels because bead/pixel, and I would like someone to actually MAKE a solid end perler beard with a longer pegboard.. that would be sex)
