This week's update is decidedly less exciting than usual (if you could call any of them exciting), as the big piece I've been working on can't be revealed for another couple of weeks! It's a gift for a birthday, and I don't want to ruin the surprise. All I can tell you is that it took about 5 hours to make, and measures 50x50cm. All will be revealed in time!
Other than that, I framed the Guybrush Threepwood commission, and sold another piece that has proven popular at the last couple of gaming markets - Yoshi's Island!
This isn't the exact one that sold (there was no border and hence more beads in the one I sold this weekend), but the scene is the same. Although I've sold two of these now, they take quite a while to make (due to the detail), so I think I'll make something different (but of a similar size) for the next market. Also, I prefer making new artwork rather than repeating something I've done before.
I have also been working on a design for a new piece which I think will look cool when finished, but don't want to spoil that surprise until it's been created and presented to the intended recipient! Sorry I'm just a big tease this week aren't I!
I'll have more stuff to show you next week I promise!
My name is Iain and my addiction is making pixel bead art. My main inspirations are comics, video games and movies.
