Perler Beads
« on: May 24, 2013, 03:38:29 AM »
So here are some things I have been working on that I felt like sharing. They are pixel art versions of some of the Berserk characters in Perler bead form.

All credit for the Pixel Art these were made from goes to this guy: http://www.behance.net/gallery/8bit-rules-BERSERK/3876371

The biggest problem I had with these was the limited color choices for beads. As seen in all of them I am missing a shade or two that would have made them much better, but sadly there is no bead in that shade. I plan to do Zodd in his human form and Femto next.

Here is Guts as the Black Swordsman:


Guts under the influence of the Berserkers Armor:


Griffith as Commander of the Band of the Hawk:


And finally the Beherit:

Great detail, like video game sprites.
Now I ride with the mocking and friendly ghouls on the night wind
And play by day in the catacombs
I know that light is not for me, save that of the moon
Yet in my new wildness and freedom I welcome the bitterness of alienage
For I know always that I am an outsider...an outsider...stranger in this century...for a time
A stranger among those who are still...men

Heres afew more I have made. The next one I plan to work on is Zodd - Apostle Form, but its about 3 times bigger than any of the ones ive made so far. Its pretty big.

Anyways heres Zodd - Human Form


This actually came out the worst in my opinion. The entire things feels a shade to light, but I had to work the the colors provided you know? I would have loved to have one more shade of brown though. Would have made it much better.

And then heres 2 non-Berserk related ones.

A Metroid


And Portal

Very cool! Did you do the Zodd design "freehand" so to speak, or was it based on something. You should make some emoticons   :daiba:

Not bad. Looks a little too "RPGMaker" to me though. It's also less of a task to make pixel art look that good at 64 pixels high. Try 21  :guts:

Oh im sure. It was actually the only pixel art of Berserk I could find though so if you manage to find any more please send them my way. I very much want to find a fully body one of Schierke or Serpico to do.

I actually made my own pixel art for a Link bead art I am going to do soon, so I cant wait to see how it comes out.

So some of my fellow co-workers noticed the one or two of these I keep on my desk and asked if they could have one to. One actually asked for all of the Final Fantasy 1 main characters.

So far I only have Red Mage, Black Mage and White Mage.



Heres one I made for myself.



If the people at work keep asking for them I am gonna have to start charging for them cause beads cost money. Also I have yet to start on Apostle Zodd. I have to wait for my extra peg boards so that I have room to work with all the beads.

Nice work man! And yeah, in the words of that one guy from that one movie, "if you do something well, never do it for free. Especially if those beads cost money." :daiba:
