Video Game: Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy is one of my all time favourite game series, but I’ve never stitched anything from it. I always felt that its been over done in cross stitch.
I somehow lost my old bookmark that was based upon a final fantasy hand, and thought I’d come up with something myself!

Another book! I was contacted by my good friend Johloh and he asked me to help out with a new book project he had. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance, and made this pattern.

This was made for a Disney Classic Cross Stitch Kit, which you can buy here:

The view of Rapture from the eyes of a mark 1 Big Daddy.
I’ve wanted to do a Bioshock stitch for a long time, and I was really interested in an online challenge using silhouettes.
The result is this, something that has been zooming around my brain for a few years.

Video Game: Pokemon

I’ve been playing around with the idea for a triptych for years now, but never sat down and stitched one. And it was time I did so.
No sprite design has been needed in these stitches, they’re all HeartGold/SoulSilver sprites, but I really wanted to use brightly coloured aida for a change. I was getting bored of white and black.

Having stitched a lot of Pokemon recently, i wanted to go off it, and with the advent of the new Assassin’s game being about pirates, I got a little bit excited.
This is a traditional sampler with an Assassins creed theme, with a touch of glow in the dark thread thrown in to add effect.

Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 1
Video Game: Skyrim

I had another iPhone case hanging around from my last stitch, and I thought I would put it to good use. Having been playing sky rim for ages, and still no where near complete enough for me (completionist nature, with an endless game doesn’t go well). I loved the look of the Darkness Returns achievement logo so I threw together a quick image, and added a Thu’um to the base.

I’ve seen a whole slew of iPhone case cross stitches out there. I was lucky enough to come across them at a local car boot sale, so picked them up.
This pattern just came about after looking at the new Batman game trailer.
The term ‘nowhere to run’ isn’t actually said by Joker, but I think the image worked out well.

Canvas: Black

Video Game: Super Metroid

This was the main part of my swap gift for Sprite Stitch’s Swap 2013. My partner this year was BooChocoBoom. On her questions she showed a real interest in Super Metroid, and zombies. Having just started playing through Super Metroid only a week before, I thought a perfect opportunity.
Its a mix between a screen shot in the game, and extra work by myself for the arm cannon. Stitched on 18 count, which is a first for me. I really love the stark difference of bright green and bright purple against the black background, it really stands out.
I also wrote to her in the style of a top secret letter from the Galactic Federation, giving her the blueprints to defeat the Metroid and Zombie invasions. It has loads of references to her favourite games and tv shows, and is below if you want a read.

I came across the idea of a portrait stick through Portal, and a challenge on SpriteStitch boards. When researching I found this amazing Gordon Freeman from Half Life sprite by Nicholas Smith, which I just had to use.
I really like the idea of portraits, and might do another soon.
