My last two deviations got more attention than usual, so people asked me a few questions. I will answer the most asked questions here. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask so I can complete the FAQ
What materials do you use for your bead sprites?
I use beads and peg boards of the Hama brand. It's the most widely availabe bead brand in my area.
Where do you get your supplies?
Mostly from Amazon, but also from local stores.
What do you mean by taping the sprites?
When you iron directly on the peg boards, the heat will deform the boards over time. So I put masking tape over the completed sprite to remove it from the boards as a whole to iron it. There are also tutorial videos on Youtube if you wish to watch how it works.
How long does it take you to do a sprite?
That depends on its size and complexity. I usually don't keep track of the time while beading, as I often slack off, get sidetracked or watch a little TV inbetween
To give you a rough idea, a medium-sized sprite like the Pokemon in my gallery takes usually 1-2 hours, while bigger sprites can take between 5-7 hours or even more.
What is the process behind your work/can you make a tutorial?
I have posted two step-by-step pieces to illustrate the process.

Do you take commissions?
No, sorry. I simply have no time to do commissioned work.
What do you do with them?
I sell some of the small and medium-sized sprites in my Etsy shop.
The bigger ones are a hassle to sell, because shipping costs get really expensive, as I ship from Europe and most of my customers are from the US.
The ones I really like get pinned on my walls, or are simply stored in boxes.
