Since I've seen people making/selling these bead sprites/pictures at Comic Con, I want to try it myself.
So here's the first one I made- a Lisa carrying Maggie bead sprite/picture, based on the Simpsons Arcade Game(when you beat Mr Burns as Lisa). I also made two more bead pictures as well- a small 8 bit Mario and a small 8 bit Luigi, both based on Super Mario Bros.
These were so fun to make(and lots of patience, not to mention LOTS of yellow beads on the Lisa & Maggie one). I'm thinking of making more of these soon.
This is very Amazing! You have ALOT of talent with those beads I really like the Lisa and Maggie one the most Theyre so adorable >w<
They were fun to make. I might make more soon.
Those came out really nice! I really love the one with Lisa holding Maggie
The bead sprite is amazing!!
Lisa and Maggie are soooooo cute!! I like how your first one is a pretty challenging one!! Good for you!!!
How long did it take for you to make each one? Where did you get the beads?
Thanks! Yeah I didn't expect my first one to be pretty big.
The Lisa & Maggie one probably took me a range to an hour and a half to two hours before I ironed it. I actually ran out of yellow beads and needed ten more for Lisa's head but eventually got some more yellow beads. As for the Mario & Luigi ones, those took like 20 minutes.
Also we should play the Simpsons Arcade Game together someday.
Did you have to glue the beads?
Not really. First, I placed the beads on a glass pattern pad and then I ironed the bead picture for a couple of seconds so they will stick together. And then SUCCESS!
Hey, nice toys they are cute.
That's actually what got me interested in making bead sprites too. People selling them at Cons that is.
AHHH NOSTALGIA! XD Awesome!
So many memories of retro games.
