I made a Perler of one of the aliens from the movie They Live. I found an image of one, ran it through one of them fancy sprite maker sites, and this came out. The colors are insane and by the time I was finishing I just started free-styling it. Looks much better from a distance. Up close its just chaos. I need to grab a frame for it today. I've been addicted to framing my stuff lately. Ironing this was a mess. I screwed up and didn't iron them evenly the first time and when I lifted the paper some stuck to it.

I just finished framing my Samus and Akira pill Perler beads this morning and hung them on the wall. I also have some in my hallway but those are not pictured and have been shown on here before anyway.
I did this Samus Perler from Metroid in pin up form based off of some sprites made by Olsonmabobon on Deviant Art. I have seen this design made by others before and it was another one of those I never thought I could sit here and make. I changed up some of the colors but I still like this one and framed it.

I did this Space Harrier Perler a few days ago. I was gonna frame it but decided to frame something else you'll see soon. I'm not 100% happy with this because it needed colors I do not have.

I did this Spirited Away Perler bead last night based off of a big pixel design I found online. I used my large board and split it into two parts which is always not fun to do. I love the way this looks and came out. I substituted a few colors but it ended up being more vibrant than expected. I used clear beads instead of white for the shading on her shirt and for the dragon. I framed it this morning and will hang it on the wall at a decent time. No need to be pounding on my walls and waking neighbors right now.
A couple of day ago I did these. The Megazord I did just because. I was gonna do another one (Dragonzord) but realized that it was just gonna go into the bag in the closet with the hundreds of other things I have created so I stopped. This thing is huge. I also did a Matrix Of Leadership from Transformers based off of a very fuzzy cross stitch pattern. I also included a part of my wall with framed designed. I was hammering small designs into the wall like I've done in the past and decided I didn't want that level of chaos in my place.

I have wanted to make this for a long while now. I found this Macho Man Randy Savage sprite on The Wrestling Legends Forum and decided to make it in Perler form. Its based on the theme of sprites from the old Wrestlefest game which was impossible to beat. I still have no idea what I am going to do with these things.

I did this Clayface Perler bead this morning. I wanted to do a M.O.D.O.K one but it had so many shades of brown and gold/yellow that I never own. Plus I was gonna be doing it for no reason. I do that a lot. I have loved Clayface since Batman The Animated Series and he has some of the most tragic and emotional episodes. This ended up being done in two pieces with the large peg board turned sideways. As always I try to take very clear pictures so you all can copy it if you want. Just don't copy it and brag about how difficult it was to come up with. I've seen a lot of people do that with my stuff on Youtube.

I did this Shinsuke Nakamura from NXT Perler bead based off of two different Pokemon trainer sprites. It took a while to find the right poses and models to use but once I got going it came along easily.

I did this Iron Fist (while watching the new series on Netflix) using sprites from a fan made game called Avengers United Battle Force. I like the way this came out.

I did these Batman and Superman Perler beads a few days ago and forgot to post them. I have done them in this style from a video game in the past but gave them away as gifts.

I was looking for something to make last night and stumbled upon these Pokemon trainer based WWE sprites made by someone named Zakuuko. I want to link them but their Tumblr page is not working. I loved these way these things looked even though they were in black and white and grays. There are a couple more but I picked these three. Today I am gonna make some more using trainer templates but with other wrestlers I like. So far I have made Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, and John Cena.

I did these Burger Time Perler beads based off of three different designs that were online. I am so glad I finally got a large peg board that I now know how to take care of (leave a heavy book on it to keep it from warping).

I did these Run The Jewels Perler beads based off of some sprites I found online. RTJ is currently the best rap act going and has been for a few years now. I also got a frame and put them in it after painting the background red and black. Love the way it came out.
I have done a bunch of pictures using Pixlr over the last month or so. Watch in amazement as my hair grows! Click here for previous Fun With Pixlr.
I did this Star Lord based off of a found sprite that was very small and blew it up 800% like I do with most sprite or pixel based designs. I almost stopped halfway through like "Do I want this?" and the answer was yes. Funny, I removed the Rocket Raccoon and put this in its frame. I also did these Street Fighter pixel based Ryu and M. Bison. Still debating on if I will frame them.
I did this Hyrule shield from Zelda out of Perler beads the other day and am so happy with it. Joaan's is having multiple sales so I have been able to stock up on the beads I need. I have seen others make this and the sprite design (which I used) and never thought I could make this thing. But I did! I ended up framing it after getting one from the thrift store for three bucks.

I did these NES based Perler beads of Bucky O'Hare, Jenny, Willy Duwitt, Deadeye Duck, Blinky, and Bruiser. I loved this cartoon when I was in school and even though I was pretty much too old to have the toys I did have Bruiser and Deadeye Duck.

I did this Marvin from Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy based off of a pixel done by PixelBlock the other day.

I just finished the Abobo from River City Ransom Underground. Some of you may notice that these have been smoother than my previous beads. I prefer beads to be face up or the ironed side down. But when I started these my peg boards were not even and I didn't notice until afterward. I decided to just stick with that for the rest of these. Here is also a random ass Little Mermaid I did a few days ago.
I did these River City Ransom Underground Perler beads the other day. I have watched some play of this game and it looks really cool and fun. I found some animated gifs and froze them at the moment I wanted and made them that way. I just used a snipping tool. Everyone has one. I changed some of the colors and ran out of others. I still like the way they came out. I plan on making Abobo later and will add that in an update of this post.
