Hi all!

It's been a looooooooooong while. I haven't been really active on DA. I haven't stopped writing and making bead project though, but I post my writing on fanfiction.net (you can find me under the nickname Ocena Strex) and am simply too lazy to post my finished bead art here ^^;. I'm still commenting at times though.

That's all I've got to say really...

:iconkaleidobot: did this meme, and I thought it would be cool to give it a go.

I have to answer these questions with song titles by a single artist.

Nanaki/Red XIII by Aenea-Jones
First off, when you were working on this piece you actually inspired me to make my own. It's hanging proudly on my own wall as I'm writing this. I think it's amazing how you're able to turn a large pixel sprite into a bead project. I know that deciding on which colours to use can be very difficult, since you're so limited in what you've got. I hope you'll keep up the good work.

That said there are a few things that bother me a little bit about this project. I see that you've used a few grey beads along the tips of Red's mane and the end of his tail. With the darker background this is really noticeable, and I think it takes away from the beauty of the overall project. I also wonder why you've decided to make his nose blue, while you could have used hama colour 12 (dark brown).

Since I've made this project myself as well I can also tell that there's one colour variation that you didn't add (at least from what I can tell). For his main body you've used 3 main colours (3 yellow, 4 orange and 44 pastel red), where you could have used 4. Because of this, I'd say Red has turned out to be a little bit too pink (pastel red).

In case you're curious I've used hama 3, 4 and 43 (pastel yellow), and photopearls 13 (which is a slightly lighter orange than hama).

I guess since I'm also into this hobby and have made Red myself (though a little bit differently) I tend to be a bit critical. It doesn't take away that this is a huge undertaking, and that the end result is still amazing no matter how critical I get. You're an inspiration to me, and I hope you'll continue to make awesome bead art.

Met mij wel goed hoor :)
Lijkt me leuk je weer eens te zien! :hug:
Ik ga volgend jaar waarschijnlijk op zondag naar de EFF, ik heb geen vrienden die alleen op zaterdag gaan, en Kitty Ocean is er altijd.
