X-Stitch Fanart- Miku Hatsune by missy-tannenbaum X-Stitch Fanart- Miku Hatsune by missy-tannenbaum
Hello! It's been a while since I last uploaded a cross stitch project, but this one was pretty big, so it did take a while to finish. It's of Miku Hatsune, the Vocaloid, which is something I really know nothing about. (I have a Vocaloid game on my iPod- VT Panel, but it's pretty much a harder version of Pokemon Trozei with Vocaloid pictures, so that doesn't give me any frame of reference.) The pattern started on 1337XStitch's Wanted forum, when Kai asked for a pattern of Miku. After a few posts, ACL (or :iconlittelmoonie:) posted a reduced size version of her, which I then took and turned into a Neo Geo style sprite (with a 16 color limit and everything), leading to this pattern. After deciding it was cute and looked fun, I ended up making it myself. The hair colors aren't perfect, but I think her boots make up for it.

This was stitched on 14-count plastic canvas with DMC floss. Also, I think it's worth noting that stitching an SNK style sprite (that I worked quite hard to design) of a Vocaloid character, puts me well in the running for my house's nerd prize for today.

The font used to stitch Miku's name is called "Robot" and came from

Just looking at this give me an idea. :) With your permission, may I try to translate this stitch of Hatsune Miku into a bead art form?

Yeah, of course! I posted the pattern up on my blog if you want the link. The pattern refers mostly to embroidery floss colors, so it might be a pain to use in that regard, but having a graph might not hurt. I hope that your bead project comes out well, and I'm thrilled that you like the design well enough to give it a shot! ^^

May I get the link to the Hatsune Miku pattern through notes, please? :)

As for the concern, regarding the pattern, I'm not worried about it. I've done something like this from my former occupation. Plus, something wanted a pixelated art of Hatsune Miku, and he wanted me to make it. However, this one in the link, while it's fantastic, :)there's no way I'll be able to finish it in less than a week. :(…

Woah, that's beautiful, though! I can't believe how good the shininess of her hair looks! It would take ages to do, though, so I sympathize. I opened a link to your page and will get you the link within the next few minutes. I don't use DevArt much anymore, so I apologize for how slow I've been with all this!

Well, for me, I use Deviantart on a daily basis. I primarily go to DA, to look up any good ideas for bead art. Yeah, Wacker00's bead work of Hatsune Miku is top notch, :), but unless I have like 4 other bead artists, I'd probably rage quit like halfway through the project.

Also, I know that you did the stitching of video game characters and thing like that. The strange thing about it is you could look at the stitching, and it can be translated into a bead art form. There's a group on DA that supports bead art. Here's the link to the group.

Thank you! I really liked making this project, both the pattern and the actual stitching (which is sort of rare, I guess.) XD

Thanks! ^^ I really enjoyed stitching this, and it was fun to do more of a collaboration pattern!
