There and Beck again…

Unlike the laborious, tear-inducing Destiny cross-stitch, this latest video game cross-stitch was a breeze!

(Don’t have time for words? Just watch the progression video.)


A little background…there is a Kickstarter going on for a game called Mighty No. 9. ┬áThe character that I cross-stitched is named Beck and he is rather adorable, no?

If you look closely, you can see just how many squares I pulled out in the name of perfectionism.

I used my STOIK pattern maker, which like the Destiny pattern it created, wanted to pull in ALL THE BROWNS. Unfortunately, I didn’t learn my lesson from last time and just repeated my mantra of, “Follow the chart!” and wasted about 3-4 hours of work. ┬áRealizing that it wasn’t going to look right, I went back and manually edited the colors to make it look like the original picture.

I’m pretty sure it’s my quickest turnaround from start to finish. (My weary eyes can testify to that.) The measurements are 6.5″wide by 9.5″ high so I’m going to try to fit him nice and snug in a 8×10 frame and add him to my room o’ geekiness.
