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.
