3D Pokemon Cave Cross Stitch

Scroll

Title: Pokemon Cave
Date Completed: June 2013
Design: Lord Libidan
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 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.
Its 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.

3D Transforming Soundwave Cross Stitch

Scroll
Title: 3D Transforming Soundwave
Date Completed: March 2012
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 6
Show: Transformers
 
After doing my optimus prime transformer and jetfire transformer, people started to notice me. I had a few requests for other patterns, in the majority was this one, sound wave.
The previous tapes I made fit into his cassette deck, and there are a few more coming. I also wanted to have a little more fun with this one, and try to make it as best I could on the first try, so it also has two batteries in his back which convert to a cannon on his shoulder and a gun on his arm.
I am also planning on making a starscream, and might try my hand at megaton, although he is going to be EXTREMELY hard to do…

Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 32
Video Game: Pokemon

It’s Christmas! I have fond memories of Christmas TV when I was a kid, and what really stands out was the Pokemon Christmas specials. I wanted to do something Christmasy and asked ristvak to do a few patterns for me, so I could make some cross stitch Pokemon baubles.

3D Transforming Jetfire Cross Stitch

Scroll
Title: 3D Transforming Jetfire
Date Completed: May 2011
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 4
Show: Transformers

After doing my previous optimus prime transformer, I wanted to continue the series. This one was based off an image from PaperRobots1999 (Sadly no longer active), but I had to make the pattern and work out how it would transform on my own. I have also made plans for Soundwave and Starscream, which you can get on my etsy store.
Like optimus, its based on the original toy, so is a Macross VF-1S Valkyrie.
If you look out for Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine, I will be published in their March issue!

You can buy this pattern on my Etsy shop and many other transformers, so go have a look! LINK

3D Transforming Optimus Prime Cross Stitch

Optimus 1
Title: 3D Transforming Optimus Prime
Date Completed: August 2010
Design: Lord Libidan/Paper Robots 1999
Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 6
Show: Transformers

After fiddling around with plastic canvas, I wanted to do something a little different, and to push boundaries a little. I always loved fiddling with my brothers generation 1 transformer toys and it started from there. Its based on the original toy series, so transforms into a Peterbilt style semi-tractor.
It uses wire (paper clips) to move the joints.
This is my best piece in my mind so far, and have started making a second transformer Jetfire, and have plans for Soundwave and Starscream which can be found on my etsy.

This was an extension of the Harvest Moon magnets from this series. Doctor Who is amazing. I wanted a magnet. Doesn’t take a genius to work out how this ended… 😛
