Crafting The Guardians

10/01/2014 House of Geekiness 0 Comments

I finally got to work on my Guardians of the Galaxy inspired bead sprites! Here's a bit of an inside look at how I designed them.

I always start by looking at a picture of my subject and creating a color pallet for each project. 

Designing Starlord

 Had to make one with and without a mask, of course! 


Nebula was difficult. When you have a huge block of one color, it's hard to make it look good. Adding details like the stripes in her clothes helps break it up. 

The basic outline that I did for Rocket was based off my Teemo pattern, 
but I altered it quite a bit to make it work for him. 
I started with a different color pallet to see the design more clearly, 
then incorporated the real colors later. 

Baby Groot
Believe it or not, Groot was actually the hardest to make. 
I started with a design that was much bigger and more complex, 
but wanted to keep it simple and cute. 

I put the basic design together, then add details.

And here's the final product! Find these cuties in my Etsy shop or Storenvy
