X-Stitch Fanart- Clair by missy-tannenbaum X-Stitch Fanart- Clair by missy-tannenbaum
Tonight's cross stitch fanart is of Clair, the leader of Blackthorn Gym in Pokemon G/S/C. She is not the most popular gym leader, and I was never a very big fan of that set of games, but I've been wasting hours upon hours every day playing Pokemon Puzzle League/Challenge, and since the Game Boy version is set in Johto, I've had way more exposure to those gym leaders as of late than I ought to.

Anyway, this is stitched on 18 count Aida and placed in a little pink frame that I couldn't get straight in the scanner for the life of me, hence the awkward picture. To get the pattern, I colored the G/S/C sprite to match her colors from the anime so that I didn't have a boring and strangely colored 4 color sprite to work from.

I hope that you guys like this! ^^

Oh, cool! I don't know if I've seen that sprite yet (certainly not in game, I'm not very far in it at all) but the other DS trainer sprites are excellent for stitching, so I imagine it would look great! Good luck stitching it!

Ah! This is what I meant. Man I'd love to have a purse or a bag or a badge or even a hat with her on. <3

Thanks! I was playing Pokemon Puzzle Challenge a lot when I made this, so I'd wanted to do one of the gold/silver gym leaders to match! It would be easy enough to stitch it onto a garment, though, since the color count is pretty low. Sometimes, it gets weird to stitch bigger things onto waste canvas- I think the biggest I've gone is 40x40.

I didn't realise the colour count was low at all, maybe it's the lighting, but it seems to me as if she's almost shaded. I don't know if that's the right word for it though.

Well, there is some shading, but it's at about two shades per color, since I still wanted it to match the level of detail in the sprite as it originally appeared. Because of this, I guess the color count isn't really low, but I think that stitching sprites from Fire Emblem scarred me for life. XD

Ah, that would be really cool! I don't think the character gets all the credit she deserves, but maybe with the re-dos of Gold/Silver, she'll regain some popularity.

Yes I must say that her new sprite looks very great.

But IŽm pround that I was some of then who could play the original gold/silver/crystal games on my old Gameboy Colour when I was young.

Yeah the memories... :aww:

I didn't play G/S/C as much as some of the other ones, since I had a bootlegged version from eBay before the real game came out and got sort of sick of it before I had the actual cartridge. I still played it some, and it is a good game, but I have to admit, I liked R/B/Y a lot better.^^;

Cool, she was an interesting character, at least when I was watching the series. My AAML fanfiction starts just before they run into her and jumps Ash and company 25 years into the future.

I'm glad you reminded me about puzzle league, I'll have to play some on my time off! I've beaten the story mode on all levels except the super hard (Whatever the hardest level is- have gotten to Mewtwo after beating Gary but have never won)

Ah, that's cool! I didn't watch much of the Johto series, and I don't really remember why, except that there was an episode with Stantler that had me enraged. At this point, I don't even remember what the episode was about, but I still haven't ever used a Stantler in one of the games. ^^;

Your fanfic sounds really interesting, too! I tend to read more online writing when I'm at school, rather than the summer, so I haven't seen it yet, but there's so much in it already that I plan on it making for a good afternoon sometime. ^^

I apologize for reminding you about Puzzle League, that game is crack. I've been playing it so much lately that when I close my eyes or look at the ceiling I see the blocks, and the sleepier I get, the more likely I am to have no matches in my imagination. This is probably indicative of some sort of larger problem, but as soon as I'm offline, I'm probably going to play it again.

missy-tannenbaum Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2008  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Ah, Misty is cool, but I always forget to count her as a gym leader. She was so prevalent that I always associate her with the anime rather than the games, and then rank her higher than the gym leaders on whatever Pokemon pecking order I have set up in my head. ^^;

Also, this is off topic from this, but is it all right if for your tote bag I stitch the sprite on Aida and then put the patch on the bag rather than stitching it directly onto the tote's fabric? I wanted to ask before I went ahead with making it, to make sure it was okay.

:iconakiameko:
AkiAmeko Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
True, true. The Misty in the anime and the one in the games are way different though... They're pretty much completely different people, really. ^^;

Actually, now that I think about it... I think I'd rather have it in a frame so I put it on my wall. I'd hate to have a bag that I might not use. T_T (I have too many bags already) I think as a wall-hanging it might go much more appreciated. :)

Ah, spiffy!! I even have a 4 inch pink frame in my supplies box she'll fit perfectly in! I am using the sprite you sent back when school was still in, so I just need to calculate what count will fit best and stitch it up! ^^
