Welcome back to my bead melting hobby of choice. This week’s theme is Final Fantasy, a series that has spread to nearly every console of the last 30 years. I started playing Final Fantasy games in 2001, so while most of the pixel era predates me, I do love some of their older sprites, not to mention the characters in their handheld games.
First up, here’s what I made this week.
I like making smaller pieces and trying to put them in unusual shots. With that in mind, I wanted to make a whole party facing off against a big-ish enemy. I really like the minotaur Sprite from FFIII and it used a couple of shades I don’t get to use very often. I stuck all the sprites to a poster of mine to add something distinct to the setup.
I was really happy with how my Minotaur came out. It didn’t take too long to assemble, but it had been a while since I ironed something this large. the fuse was pretty even, and everything seems pretty well stuck together.
On to what I could find from other bead-sprite people!
Possibly the cutest piece I found while searching for this post.
I was really lazy this week and didn’t get around to making my own chocobo, but I don’t think I could top these.
An FF6 sprite altered with what every chocobo loves, a potion made with the finest hops and barley.
Hangin' with my Chocobro tonight playing some final fantasy as he is knockin' em back with me! Now to pick one FFIII or FFIV hhmmm… @brews_n_vids your pick bro. I figured you might appreciate this one bud. #ninstagram #nin10do #nintendods #nes #snes #nintendo2ds #nintendolife #nintendo #finalfantasy #finalfantasy3 #finalfantasy4 #chocobo #brewsnvids #retrogames #retrocollectiveus #retrogaming #retrogamer #oldschoolgaming #perlers #perler #perlerbeads #perlerart #fusebeads #hamabeads #gameart #videogameart #nerdart #geekart #thetalentlessgamer
The most recognizable FF character. I was tempted to make a Cloud before deciding to make the Minotaur.
Had to throw in another huge monster, like Leviathan.
And last, but not least some of the few bead sprites I could find from my favorite kind of Final Fantasy.. Tactics!
Next Week’s theme is Shovel Knight! Get ready to dig it.
