This is my biggest project so far! :)
The thing with pixel art is, it always looks so tiny and cute, but when reworked with beads, it becomes huuuuge :ohnoes: :D
It measures 50x36 cm (19.7x14.2 inch) and is based on :iconichitoko:'s pixel piece :heart:

Made with hama perler beads :love:

Feel free to look at my Etsy shop: :heart:

Wow. Just, wow. I like the amazing handcraft on this bead artwork, and you've turned what most people consider kids' playthings to artwork! I like how you incorporated all the pixels in this deviation, that part must have been hard to do, you know. That must've taken a lot of time, and a lot of beads based on the amount I can see just for Link, Navi, and that old tree stump! XD I like your bead work, so I hope that you do more Legend of Zelda deviations, Keep up the good work, because your art work is amazing!
What do you think?

I find this well done and generally well thought as well. I have actually learned by looking at it, that, in case you don't have edges where you need to, you can always use transparent beads, so thanks for that : ).

I like the work on the shadows that you have done as well, especially on link's cap and legs.

What i don't honestly understand are the 6 light green beads in his hair, i think you have done a very great job on his hair, but those 6 beads seem kinda out of place, or maybe i'm just missing something?
Aside this, very nice work and very good patience to go for such a big artpiece. I have done a much smaller football team logo commission and i was bored all the way trough by it ( though i'm pleased by the result).

The ironing is also very on point.
