SNK Fan Art Sheet by missy-tannenbaum SNK Fan Art Sheet by missy-tannenbaum
Hello! In a grand display of my inability to cut and paste things so that the edges are straight, I got a couple of adhesive craft mounting boards at Jo-Ann's and made this display of cross stitched and needlepointed fan art based on SNK games just to see what I could do with it. There are several crooked edges, but it's really sturdy, and I think it looks sort of nifty overall. Anyway, here is the info on every piece included!

The largest cross stitch here, in the upper left corner, is of Mai Shiranui, and was stitched on 11 count fabric from a sprite that I ripped and recolored from a Famicom pirate of Fatal Fury Special. Next to her, in the upper right corner, are two recolored sprites of Athena and Orochi Leona from the King of Fighters game boy games, stitched onto 14-count clear perforated plastic canvas. Under them, on the green Aida cloth, is a portrait of Ash Crimson stitched directly from the King of Fighters strategy guide, and he's sandwiched by another recolored game boy KOF sprite, this time featuring Mai and stitched on 10-count plastic canvas. The 11-count piece stuck next to her is of Mark of the Wolves' saucy B. Jenet, and was stitched from a custom sprite designed by Deviant Art's own :iconeimiisan:, who runs a really cool website called Utsukushii Hotaru [link] that I found it at. Last, but not least, is a custom design that I did of Cathy, from Top Hunter, stitched onto 18-count Aida cloth. The patterns for her and the larger Mai can both be found at my blog, Dork Stitch [link] if you want to stitch either of those.

It is also worth noting that the blank spaces here were filled by my origami star paper that I covered in faux 8-bit King of Fighters sprites, with the strips for Ash, Kula, and Shermie appearing here.

Which Famicom Pirate? Cony's Fatal Fury 2, or Hummer's Garou Densetsu Special?

I was using a KOF pirate as the model for most of these-- KOF '96, I think, though I can't remember if that's Hummer Team or not. I have the ROM on my media computer, so I can check later, if you'd like. It plays like it is, but that certainly doesn't mean anything. I really admire Cony's FF2, though, and have cross stitched Mai's sprite from that. That game got the artwork right in a really difficult to pinpoint way, especially with the moving train stage. It's not the most fun, but I like the look of it.

Wait..
Mai was actually among the 13 characters who were about to be brought over to the KOF '96 pirate by Hummer, but were cut out, leaving only 7. Their KOF '96 is just a hack of Street Fighter Zero (Alpha) 2 '97.

And the Cony version of Fatal Fury 2 does Not have the moving train. In that game, it just stands still, and the motion is replaced with an odd Lightning effect.

However, in the Fatal Fury Special pirate by Hummer Team, which was based off of Mortal Kombat 2 Special, the train stage Does move, with Parallax Scrolling, though it's a lot slower than the SNES and Neo Geo versions.

I assume you took Mai from FFS. Hope I've cleared things up here.

XD You are way more likely correct than I am. My memory for the specifics of each title sucks. The real problem, however, is that while you were commenting on this image, I assumed you were commenting on this: missy-tannenbaum.deviantart.co… because I have no reading comprehension. I was still wrong about which Fatal Fury I was talking about, but the sprites in this were edited using the KOF 96 pirate as a visual guide.

I apologize for the confusion- I have not been on my game lately. 

I also don't know that I've played the Cony version of Fatal Fury 2. Is it worth tracking down in terms of oddity or playability?

No. The Cony FF2 is not worth it. It's unplayable, the graphics are putrid, and the music and SFX are Horrible.

Aww, disappointing! I've gotten used to playing these games with the sound off, so that wouldn't bother me, but the graphics are always my favorite part. If they're horrendous, I won't bother.

Note: Every character also has a weird clone in this pirate: Terry = Tyler, Andy = Andrew, Mai = Kaori, Cheng (Sinzan) = Teng, Kim = King (no, not that King).

Jesus Christ, I have seen this game before and subsequently blocked it from my memory. -__- I have this on my media computer, but the flicker and slowdown on that is so severe that I never had much of an impression of it other than Mai's intense facial hair on the attract screen. Are they/you doing something special in this video to mitigate the glitches/graphical problems, or is this one of those pirates that has a few different ROM dumps, each of which has its own quirks? I know that's common with the Street Fighter carts, but haven't seen as much written about the Fatal Fury/KOF/Samurai Shodown ones. (Actually, you're the first person I've talked to that actually knows stuff about these.)

Oh, you're welcome, and thanks for letting me stitch it! Your sprites are excellent for stitching- the detail is really cool, but there's not so many colors that it becomes a headache to stitch in the slightest! ^^

Awesome Mai Shiranui stitch! My favorite SNK girl will always be Nakoruru, though. I have Neo Geo Battle on PS2 and Nakoruru and Mai are my tag team. I think Athena is cute but my husband fights with her too well and always kicks my butt unless I play with 'Ruru (that's what my daughters call Nakoruru!)

I've been inspired by your stitching to try some of my own.

Ah, thank you! I think Cathy, from Top Hunter, is my favorite SNK girl, but she's pretty minor, so I don't know if that counts. ^^; Nakoruru and Mai is a really good tag team, though, especially if you can get a bit back from the opponent and start rushing them with the fans or that thing Nakoruru does where she shoots across the screen and does piles of damage. I usually use Kisarah and Shiki, though, since I like them and keep trying to will myself to play well as them. It's so cute that your daughters call Nakoruru 'Ruru, though! Do they play any games themselves? When I was little, I used to play Atari, but was so bad at it that I remember sitting for over an hour and trying to win the ET game. XD I did really like Mr. Do, though, and was bribed with 15 minutes of playtime on that and Demon Attack, on a school night, in order to learn to tie my shoes. (I'm pretty sure I was in kindergarten then, since we got the SNES when I was in 1st grade.)

Anna is almost three, so she doesn't get to play a lot. She knows how to use a DSi and her favorite game on there is Dragon Quest Wars. She doesn't quite get the whole tactical aspect, but she just wants to move the slimes around.

My first memory is sitting on my dad's lap and him teaching me the buttons to play the first Zelda. When I was in first grade, my dad bought an SNES for our family with A Link to the Past. They were my favorite games growing up because of the memories attached to them.

Well they like calling Rimururu 'Ruru, too... I play a lot of KoF, too, but I like Billy then. I don't usually meet other ladies who play fighting games or even know what SNK is!

Oh, I guess that makes sense! I can't remember playing anything that far back, but if I had been given access to a game about moving Slimes around, I would have been pretty pleased with it. ^^ When we got our SNES, we had the Mario games instead of Zelda, and I'd always play Mario 2 off of All Stars, since the other ones didn't let me play as Toadstool and I was a brat about things like that. XD We got A Link to the Past later, though, and I'd just wander around Kakariko Village, not knowing it did anything else until my mom picked it up because she thought it was stupid to have a game that no one ever played properly. ^^;

With fighting games, I got into them in 8th grade, when I played a demo of Tekken 3, and though I'm still very fond of that series, I've been playing SNK fighters since finding KOF '99 on PS1 for ten dollars at Target. ^^ Because I'm a bit of a latecomer, I've had to backtrack a lot to play most of their fighters, but I love all of the arcade compilations they put out and have even been able to find some SNES and Game Boy ports at used game stores. Billy is a really cool character, but I usually play as Mai or Leona in the older games, or Whip or Kula in the newer ones. Athena is my favorite, character wise, but I'm completely useless at playing as her. My sister is quite good with her, though (particularly in XI, when she has her and Ash on the same team).

There's just something about those 45-degree black outlines on top-left mai's legs that are really giving it a standout look (how the normally square pixels become x's). Lineart style like the bottom right with pixel-ish shading is pretty novel to me, too. But the BJenet is proof that stitching can get all the detail that pixels crammed into so small an area can. Love the 3Dish look with the clear plastics

Oh, thank you very much! When I put this together, I tried to put as many different sprite styles as possible on the cardboard (except for poor Cathy, who's not a sprite at all), and even though it ended up with three of the Game Boy sprites present, I think that it worked out decently! The Mai in the upper left corner is actually my favorite in the set- I know some people are bothered by how outright stitched projects on 11-count fabric are, but I actually like sprites like that one a little better that way. It's cool if you can make one look exactly like it does on screen, and I do try for that a lot of times, but it's also sort of neat to actually see that it's fabric sometimes, I think.

Yes exactly-- just copying something exactly without adding anything new or any style elements makes it kind of an empty exercise

Thank you! None of the stitching was newer than three weeks old, but I sat for a couple of hours planning and trimming, and then had a slight scuffle with the board itself, when the sleeve of my hoodie got stuck to it. ^^;
