Ah, Arcanine. The poor unfortunate replace by Moltres. I once again find myself writing a critique.

Vision: I'm not sure what happened here. Almost all the colors are off except the light fur color. Due to this, much of the fur design is muddled and hard to make out. Before coming to this conclusion I asked myself if my reaction was simply due to this color scheme never being used before. Sadly, I came to the conclusion that the color scheme is just a bad choice. The rust- and mahogany-like shades simply don't work. Also, the nose looks funny. It would contrast less with the original, lighter colors.

Originality: If the colors had worked as something different, I would have bumped this score up. Still, since this work is a sprite-made-real, I can't award high points for it. You know my reaction by now.

Technique: Perfect again. Colors or not, everything is in the right spot and lines up. I especially like that the dithering used for the shadow one the mane is spot on. It's not easy to do in spriting and from what I know it's not easy to bead.

Impact: I'm torn on this one. Arcanine still has presence but the wow-factor isn't there. A 4 or 5 would have been easy to award, but the muddiness makes be scrutinize and scan rather than look in awe. Besides the colors, it's more disappointing with the last pieces popping right out.
What do you think?

I feel like the main colouring is a bit.....too dark(??) here on this one. Though! I'm not exactly sure if it's just my eyes or maybe the way you snapped the pic?? Still a great capture of the pose and !!MM!! How I would love to have this big beautiful puppy guarding ma room :heart:

Not that much actually. I bead while watching a movie or a show I like, and I could never sit still and just watch, I always had to do something else or I get bored. So it's not stealing my time. One or two evenings after work ^^
What really takes time is sorting all the beads. I usually do that on a lazy Sunday :D

Oh, yes, I see! ;) I can understand you, I made cross stitch embroidery with some of my Pokemon's pattern, and I done the same thing than you!^^ Even if I cannot do it watching a movie...!^^
You're quite skilled...! :D

I take the original game sprites as reference though, so it's more of a process-oriented craft than a creative one...

Thank you :) The ironing? It doesn't take that much time, sticking all the beads on the boards is more time-consuming ^^

Oh - I know positioning the beads takes most of the time - but I've done a little beadwork too and could never get them melted with a consistent diameter. Probably I'm too impatient after putting all of the beads on the board xD

Maybe :D I don't iron them immediately. I do a few, tape them, then put them aside and iron them another time ^^
