I'm Bashfluff, and I'm looking to make you guys some good bead sprites on the cheap! I need the money and the practice for beading and drawing, so don't be shy!
Bead sprites are crafts made out of fuse beads. They're made using sprites as a base, because sprites are drawn pixel by pixel. They transition well to a format that is basically the same, but with beads. I'll post an example. They're made on interlocking boards that are 28x28 beads long. Designs are laid out on the boards, taped, taken off, and fused together with an iron.
I make bead sprites mostly out of video game sprites and whatever pony sprites I can find, but I've found a potential partner who perhaps could draw our own stuff or "convert" images into sprites. For now, though, I'll stick with using whatever sprites I can find.
$5 = 1 board. If you want a cutie mark or something, this would be the board for you.
$8 = 2 boards. Spike might fit onto this setup.
$11 = 3 boards. I don't know what fits onto three boards. The letter L or something really tall and thin, basically.
$14 = 4 boards. These are what your main ponies will mostly fit on!
If you want to go higher than that, we'll have to discuss it. I want to practice the art and turn these out quickly, but if you REALLY want one, I'm sure we can work something out. If something just barely spills onto another board, I won't count it for the next board up, even if it spills over multiple directions onto multiple different boards.
I also do accessories! If you think your Pinkie Pie would be better with a top hat, run it by me! Unless it's really big/complicated, I'll do it free if I'm able.
Bring your own sprite. Doesn't matter from where. If you tell me what you want, I can do my best to find it, but no guarantees. If I don't find the sprite, I tell you after an hour of searching if I don't think I could do it myself until I know if I have a partner who can help me out by converting larger images to sprites.http://www.zed-ex.com/BeadSurge.aspx
Download that, download your sprite, put your sprite into it, and it will show you how it compares to the boards. Keep in mind you'll have to put into into Photoshop or Gimp and erase all the extra bits around the sprite if you want it to work right.
My biggest project, which is currently in another state, is this twenty board Pinkie Pie. It's on the boards, because I don't have a picture of it ironed just yet, but it's the only pony picture I have!
I take 50% cash up front via paypal.
I'm buying beads at the moment, and buying in bulk, so PLEASE don't be shy. If you don't have the money and would rather trade art or something, I'll be fine with that, especially if you do sprites. You can talk to me on Steam, Skype, or through email. [email protected]

Have a great day!
