A Monochrome King of Fighters Pattern

Hello! I haven't posted here in over a year, so this is probably weird and not very appropriate, but I got some new cross stitch supplies for Christmas and was looking at monochrome charts to try to make something fancy. The old fashioned ones were very nice, but I felt like I would have more fun stitching them if they were of characters from fighting games, so I looked at some sprites from King of Fighters XIII, picked one, and sat around messing with it like I did with the Wind Waker stuff until I had a pattern I liked. I think it came out really well, so I wanted to post it. I'm not sure anyone else will be excited to have a monochrome cross stitch pattern of Ash Crimson from King of Fighters XIII, but I, myself am hoping to start stitching this tonight. I hope someone reading this likes it, too!

I don't have very much time right now, so I can't post too much at the moment, but I finished a cross stitch of Pai and Honey from the Game.com version of Fighter's Megamix that I want to show off at some point. I don't have any well-formatted patterns in reserve, though, so I don't know if I'll post another pattern any time very soon.

Anyway, I hope people are doing well and having fun with their crafts!

Sprite Patterns December Day 24: A Comedy Robot From Space

Hello! Today, I am trying to avoid another 1:50 am post, because that kind of sucked, but also posting a new pattern that I made this morning and am very excited about. Earlier this week, I went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and thought that maybe I could get away with posting some sprite patterns from that here. I know that Star Wars is universally hated, so this is a big risk I'm taking, but really, it can't go over half as badly as the lose-10-followers pattern of Tai from Digimon.

Anyway, for today, I've made a pattern of BB-8, because it is a cute little robot that rolls around and beeps, and I want to get out a piece of perforated plastic canvas and make a stack of them in different colors and put them all over the place. This is a small and very easy pattern to stitch, and the biggest problem is that it's slightly off scale from the sprite pattern people that I've made. I didn't figure that actually mattered, though, so here is the pattern!

Now that I have posted that, I am done for today! Merry Christmas Eve! I should be back with another pattern tomorrow!

Sprite Patterns December Day 23: It's Before Midnight PST!!!

Hello! I slept badly last night, got up, went to work, drove two hours in crazy wind, and then played a lot of board games, so I am late. Have a sprite pattern of Mystique from X-Men! I found it amusing to make this. There's certainly not a lot of clothing detail here.

Okay, that's all! Hopefully, I will do less badly tomorrow!

Sprite Patterns December Day 22: The Text Is Better Than the Pattern

Hello! Today has been a pretty good day. I am doing my laundry, eating curry chicken wings, and later, I was lucky enough to find a local theater playing this small indie movie called Star Wars, so I think I'm going to go see that. Plus, last night we did a roommate Christmas gift exchange, which sounds normal enough, I'm sure. The thing is, we started it at 1:00am, so we were all a bit tired and loopy. One of my roommates both of us other roommates these lovely pen sets from Korea, and had us both test every pen. The red pen in my set didn't work, even after tons of scribbling, so she did the only reasonable thing, which was to grab a grill lighter, get the flame going, and stick the pen's tip in the fire. After a few seconds of, "I burned it... I burned the pen," as I thought, "yes, that is the thing that happens when you put a pen in fire," we tested it, and this made the pen work. It was a true Christmas miracle.

Anyway, for today, I have a sprite pattern of Hayato from Project Justice/Rival Schools. If you care about that, it will be easy to stitch, because his character design is not very complicated. If you don't, I'll have something different tomorrow.

I am done for today! I hope that you all have good evenings!

Sprite Patterns December Day 21: More Kingdom Hearts Stuff

Hello! Thanks for all the comments yesterday! I appreciate it. I'm not upset about losing followers, but I'm confused about it, more than anything. Anyway, today I have another of the Kingdom Hearts patterns that someone requested a while back. This one is of someone named Terra, and he has really intense bell bottoms. This pattern also has a really high color count, so it might be a pain to make, but for those of you who like the character and game, I hope it's good!

I'm done posting for today, but will come up with something else for tomorrow. Have a good night!

Sprite Patterns December Day 20: Another Day, Another Sora

Hello! I lost 10 followers last night, but don't feel like Tai was particularly controversial, so I think I'm going to blame Google for this one. Anyway, today I have a pattern of Sora, also from Digimon, that I'm really happy with. Judging by the quality of this pattern compared to yesterday's, I should lose about 20 or 30 followers before my next post. Blogger is confusing.

There is a pattern for today! I'll be back with something else tomorrow! Until then, have a nice night!

Sprite Patterns December Day 19: Cross Stitch Friends to the Boys and the Girls

Hello! I am not getting ahead on patterns very well this month, but today am starting a new pattern set! For a long time, I have wanted to make Digimon sprite patterns, but felt that it would take a high level of skill at sprite patterns to get the giant hair and weird clothes right. I am still not sure I'm quite ready to work on this, but today, am starting with a pattern of Tai, from the first season of Digimon. I don't see the hair getting more intense than this, and if you do want to make this for yourself as a standee, it might be a challenge to stop him from tipping over. I think it came out okay, though, so here is the pattern!

I am going to take my inhaler and eat snacks, because Saturdays are wild around here. I'll be back with probably more Digimon tomorrow!

Sprite Patterns December Day 18: More King of Fighters

Hello! I didn't sleep well last night, and my roommates and I just had a food party for some friends from India who are graduating and taking off, so I am not feeling coherent or attentive tonight! However, I've still got the pattern I was talking about last night, of Chris from King of Fighters! The whole Shermie/Yashiro/Chris team is kind of neglected, at least aside from Shermie, and looking closely at Yashiro and and Chris, I feel like their outfits make that reasonable. Chris's flared cropped t-shirt is confusing, and I'm not sure the white capri pants with high tops help his image. Still, I'm okay with this pattern, and hope you guys like it, too!

I am done for today, and don't exactly know what I'll post tomorrow. I'll have something, though! Have a good night, and a nice tomorrow, too!

Sprite Patterns December Day 17: Unwarranted Excitement About Fighting Games

Hello! With finals finally over, tonight I made loaves of muffin bread and worked on cross stitch patterns! I am still kind of behind on patterns, so I'm only posting one again today, but hopefully, I can get things back in order soon.

Tonight, I started working on King of Fighters sprite patterns again, because I have my finger on the pulse of what crafters want. I know a lot of the characters that I still need to make, from some pretty prominent ones to some really obscure ones, even for King of Fighters. For today, though, I was working on some of the characters from earlier in the series, so I made Yashiro and Chris from King of Fighters '97. I'm not sure if my pattern of Chris is good enough yet or not, so I'm going to post it tomorrow, but I have Yashiro ready to post tonight. His outfit is weird, with some strange jacket  cropping and difficult to explain belts, but because he's from an older game, the color count is pretty low, meaning that this should be pretty easy to stitch if you want to.

I am done posting for now, but will have more stuff tomorrow! Until then, have a nice Friday!

Sprite Patterns December Day 16: Finals are Over!

Hello! I finished all my final papers today, but my brain is still kind of fried, so this is not going to be a top caliber post. Tomorrow, though, I'm going to be baking stacks of quick bread from mixes I bought at Big Lots and making some King of Fighters cross stitch patterns! I have so many characters in mind that I want to make, because I consider exactly the same things that cool people do when it comes to crafts.

Anyway, tonight I have another Kingdom Hearts thing. Tonight it is of Ventus, who looks like Sora a lot, but maybe with an even more bizarre outfit. I seriously don't know who this is, but the outfit is insane. The metal jewel thingy on his arm marks him so clearly as a Square-Enix RPG kid that it is bizarre. If you have some gold embroidery floss, though, it would be great for this pattern. It's super-detailed for a sprite pattern, but not so intense that it'll be impossible to swap out some colors.
Okay, I am done for tonight, and ready for a slight break for my brain! I'll be back tomorrow with all sorts of shiny fighting game rubbish. Until then, have a nice day!
