Mana Beast - Step by Step by Aenea-Jones Mana Beast - Step by Step by Aenea-Jones
Some of my watchers wanted to know how I approach some of my bigger bead works.
So I decided to take some photos during the process. It became pretty big ^^;

I'll upload a clean version of the finished sprite some time later :)

Your work is amazing but how do you iron the whole thing without it knocking over? That is what i am wondering

I iron it bit by bit. When I'm finished with a part, I put a heavy book on it so it doesn't deform ^^

Really nice! I did a perler of Flammie flying across the screen sometime last year and really enjoyed it. Was thinking of doing this one too. The beasts have such great colors. :)

What version sprite did you use? SNES version or mobile? I found mobile actually has better colors on some of the sprites, especially Flammie.

Thank you :)
I used the SNES version, I didn't knew about a mobile version ^^

You're quite welcome. :)


I haven't played the mobile version, so I don't know if it's any good, but the sprites look great. They redid or retouched a lot of them. Mana Beast didn't get much of a change, but Flammie got huge change in color. There's sprite sheets of them on Spriter's Resource if you were curious.
