Not only that but I’ve got loads of patterns in it too!

Building Our Future Retro Futuristic Poster

Scroll
Title: Building Our Future Retro Futuristic Poster
Date Completed: February 2013
Design: Lord Libidan
The first in a new folly into digital art, this retro futuristic poster was originally just a weekend project, however as time progressed it became a long term project.
Its a satirical take on the retro futurism of the 20th century with its various influences and themes.
The city scape and high rises are to show the grander of the period and hopes for becoming something great with theories that the space ship and blimp would still be in use in the future. Additionally the atom is to represent the drive for a science ‘miracle’ and the untapped world atomic energy could bring, but also a joke on an aspect often found in retro futuristic posters, that despite it not relating to the poster in anyway.

Fallout 3 VATS Embroidery!

Title: Fallout 3 VATS Embroidery
Date Completed: March 2013
Design: Lord Libyan
Canvas: Photo Print
Colours: 2
Video Game: Fallout 3

When I gave embroidery a try last year, it was a bit too simple for my liking. However, I got inspiration to try again after seeing a piece in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
This is based upon the iconic VATS system in Fallout 3 and New Vegas.

3D Pokemon Character Cross Stitch

Scroll
Title: 3D Pokemon Character
Date Completed: March 2013
Design: Lord Libyan
Canvas: Card
Colours: 3
Video Game: Pokemon

This was actually a test I’ve had planned for just over a year. The sprite has been split into multiple levels and stitched on plastic canvas on top of each other, making the sprite look like its coming out of the page, and that the perspective it correct.
Whilst it does work, I think scaling up of this idea would not.
The sprite was a combination of Pokemon Red/Blue and Gold/Silver main characters.

This one was for another Sprite Stitch competition and was a welcome break to the epic project I’m currently working on.

Its based upon a joke in Fallout 3 where a vault is filled with clones all named Gary.
