Nathan vs Perler Beads Part 5: Final Fantasy IV, Earthbound, Misc

So in my Squaresoft post I mentioned I didn't do Final Fantasy IV. Well, I was feeling pretty bad about that, so I decided to remedy it by making A WHOLE BUNCH OF 'EM.

...but I didn't do any step by steps of the actual in-game heroes. Sorry. So instead, let's see my work on the enemy I was going to have them fight...

Whatever could it be?

Yeah, I really should actually document this stuff...

It's VampGirl! This is seriously one of my most favorite enemy sprites from FFIV.

For a size estimate (if the cart doesn't cut it), it's about as big as Sigma, who was about as big as my forearm.So now it's time to kick butt and take names...

I figured the final party would be appropriate.

Cecil was the most annoying because he's mostly a muted yellow/white color, of which there is only one bead color (cream). So we compensated by using a mix of yellows and grays. I still think it worked out! Kain was also annoying, but he also turned out a lot better than I'd expected.

YOU KNOW WHOSE FAT?!

I love the Fat Chocobo.

The whole group before we stuck 'em to the wall.
...and after we stuck 'em to the wall.

All the rest of them are hangin' out next to the Fat Chocobo. I gotta say, I LOVE Cid. I wanna make another one and put 'em up at work. Probably because I kind of look like him (glances at profile picture...)

The whole brigade. We put them over the bedroom door because...I have no idea.

Next, a few bonus ones. Earthbound!

I kind of want to make every NPC from the game. I just love the style from the Mother games.

And we put them over the piano because...it's...piano related. Not really.

But it gives me something awesome to look at whist I pound out a bad rendition of Loss of Me.

A few other misc ones coming off the misc truck...

Wario's Woods is my wife's favorite puzzle game. Besides maybe Plants vs Zombies.

I am so bad at Wario's Woods it isn't even funny, so my wife made all of these. Because she's absurdly good at Wario's Woods.

We put 'em next to Dr. Mario and the Mario RPG cupboard under the stairs.

I think it still needs something, but we'll see.Lastly, we did a bunch of misc NES ones that we weren't sure where to put 'em or what to do, but I wanted to make. So in no particular order, let's play "guess what NES game these are from!"

I put this on in the bathroom sitting on the lightswitch.

And...

This one should be pretty easy to guess.

And.....

I figured next to the shower was appropriate.

And lastly, my wife made a ton of Minish Cap cats because...she likes cats.

She also made that Companion Cube you see through our coffee table.

And that's it from this batch! And I just realized I haven't made any Kirby sprites yet. SO NOW GUESS WHAT IM DOING TONIGHT?!

I have another blog you can hit up, and a youtube channel if you want. Whatevs. It's coo'.

@Seauton: Yeah man, I love me some Earthbound. Should probably bust out some Mother 3 sprites while I'm at it...
