Pokemon: Perler Bead Lugia by heatbish Pokemon: Perler Bead Lugia by heatbish
Lugia is definitely one of my favorite legendaries, and I've been wanting to bead it forever! So when I got a request to do so .. I WAS ALL OVER THAT. *o*

Made with Perler and Nabbi bead products. Approximately 7 inches tall and 8.5 inches wide.

Sprite reference: Heart Gold / Soul Silver Overworld.

Exact colors used:
Perler White ( light body shade )
Nabbi Light Gray ( dark body shade )
Perler Gray ( 'fingertip' shading )
Perler Turquoise ( belly )
Perler Light Blue ( eyes and tail light shade )
Perler Dark Blue ( eyes and tail dark shade )
Perler Black ( outline )

Available for purchase at my Etsy: [link]
Commissions are open!~ Just note me.

Oh my goodness, thank you SO much for listing the colors you used for this piece! I've been going crazy trying to figure out where people were getting light greys from--no wonder I couldn't find 'em if it was an entirely different company! I owe you so much! :)

I assume from how wonderful your Lugia looks that Perler and Nabbi mesh well together? Any advice for a relative newbie looking to mix brands?

I'm really glad it helped! I know I look at other's pieces sometimes and am like, "What shade is that? Is my monitor off? Maybe Nabbi? Hama .. ?"

My only real tip is iron slowly when mixing beads! Nabbi beads are either cut slightly lower than Perler, or melt slower. You can kind of see it in this piece; the white Perler Beads are almost completely melted on top, where the Light Gray Nabbi are about right where I like them. :)

Very well done, and Lugia is indeed an awesome legendary :D
I have a question regarding these beaded crafts people make. I know how to make them using those kits with the mold that you place the beads on and then iron them, but how do you do it with something like this (assuming that there are no manufactured Pokemon molds)? Do you have to create the mold yourself or do you hold the beads together some other way?

Well, the 'mold' is simply a board with pegs arranged in evenly spaced rows and columns. As long as you have a blue print or reference in pixel form, all you have to do is arrange the beads to correspond. :) The boards look like this, you can see the 'spikes' that hold the beads in place: [link].

So all I do really is blow up a sprite in MSPaint and then arrange the pixels on the board. ^_^

Hope that answers your question, hah. XD

It's a beauty! Lugia is one of my favorite Pokemon designs, and probably my favorite overall after the original 151.
