Title: Metroid Power Suit & Cannon Blueprints
Date Completed: September 2013
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 18
Canvas: Black
Colors: 3
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.

Count: 16

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.

Pokemon Tattoo Cross Stitch by Lord Libidan

Title: Pokemon Tattoo
Date Completed: August 2013
Design: Lord Libidan
Canvas: White
Colors: 38
Video Game: Pokemon

After completing my Portal Tattoo stitch some time ago, it has become synonymous with my work. As a result, I wanted to stitch another.
Unlike the last one, I had to totally create a pattern from scratch, which includes my previous Pokedex, and a few other things I’ve been wanting to stitch for a long time, such as the Kanto region badges.

You can pick up the Pokemon Tattoo cross stitch pattern from my Etsy store!

3D Pokemon Cave Cross Stitch by Lord Libidan

3D Pokemon Cave Cross Stitch by Lord Libidan

Title: Pokemon Cave
Date Completed: June 2013
Design: Lord Libidan
Canvas: Plastic
Colors: 11
Video Game: Pokemon

This has been in the planning for more than a year before I started, and took almost 6 months to complete.
The reason it took so long is simply the challenge of having such a piece come out at you on plastic caves, on a 45-degree angle (plastic canvas means you can only use 90 or 0/180 degrees). However, after giving up on the project a total of three times, I finally worked out a way to do it.
It’s based upon a series of works by the painter John Wilson after I saw a few of his pieces in a local art store. The effect should be that the cave looks to go inwards, and when you move your head (or the camera), the cave goes with it, forcing perspective, whilst all the time, it comes out at you.

Count: 14
Canvas: Black
Colors: 11
Show: Star Trek

This is another one I had to keep quiet about. One of these is in the upcoming Star Trek book! These were designed to go together but were thrown out last minute as they aren’t actually meant to go together. I loved the composition, even if it should technically go together, so stitched it anyway!

Date Completed: March 2013
Design: Lord Libyan
Canvas: Photo Print
Colors: 2

When I gave embroidery a try last year, it was a bit too simple for my liking. However, I got the 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.

Title: 3D Pokemon Character
Date Completed: March 2013
Design: Lord Libyan
Canvas: Card
Colors: 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 it’s coming out of the page, and that the perspective is 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.
