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
, 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.
