I needed to make this girl a present and she likes penguins so I figured I'd do some pixel art out of these beads. For those who don't know, you get the colors and you put them on a peg board and then iron them. The penguin is a heavily modified Bub or Bob sprite and then the other two are for you (the audience) to guess! They sell these things on Etsy so I figure I'd try my hand at that. 90% of the stuff on there is Mario or Pokemon related things so I thought I might go more obscure and stand out. Some of the problems I've run into is one of my peg boards already warping and my iron heating very unevenly. I was thinking maybe heating up a cast iron skillet and then pressing that onto the backs of these. I try to melt the backside so the little holes fill up, that way you can hold them up and look at them and not see light penetrating through the holes.

Is that one on the right from Gargoyle's Quest or whatever the GB one was?

Middle one is Agumon from the Digimon tamagachi like things right? My memory on the proper terms is fuzzy as I had one of these things when I was like 7 or something.

Oh, also these look awesome. I wanna make some now!

Yes correct, Agumon. It's pretty fun if you like doing crafts.

Excuse me, please keep that filth on Reddit where it belongs.

(Just kidding, that looks pretty cool. You should try closing all the holes except for the outer beads and then sticking them on a window and it should create an outline type thing when the sun shines...though I imagine that would be better with stained glass or something.)
