It's taken me 6 months, 217024 Hama beads, several burns and some serious neck ache but I'm done.

155 pokemon and a title.




I've seen a bunch of people make the icon sized Pokemon in Hama/Perler beads, but I've not found a collection of the game sprites from Red/Blue, in their original greyscale.

209,413 beads and another six months of my life. All gone.

I did finish them in March, but then the wife decided I needed to spend time with her and we went on holiday.



Now I'm going to seriously evaluate my life choices before doing Pokemon Red/Green.

Full on respects :) As an ex-(and sometimes current)-pixel artist, I know how long it would take me to do those in digital form, let alone in actual beads. They look great! Thumbs Up

Very well done. That's definitely an achievement. Now for the Pokemon from the other games/regions! ;)
