HR - 'Sounds Embroideresque'



[NEWS UPDATE JULY 9 2009: This deviation got featured in the "Weekly Fanstuff" section of! Thank you Brothers Chaps! :D]

OK, so according to that Power Rangers fanart I did 2 months back, this so-called "big project" would end up taking longer to get here than the usual. Oh well... nevermind.

Either way, over the course of about 8 months, I spent time getting involved in something I wanted to do for a long time - embroidery! I had it in my head that I'd do a cross-stitch design and get it up on here somehow after attempting to do something similar with my half-finished art GCSE and liking what I did out of the experience, so I thought it would be a good idea to make one.

So yes, the first design I did was to do one based on the Homestar Runner universe, specifically Strong Bad's Dangeresque movie series. This picture was started in the middle of October 2008 with an intention to finish it in time for the release of the fourth episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People - Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective. However, it missed the date spectacularly and FINALLY got complete in the middle of January. :giggle: At least I was still a H*R nut at heart.

Here, I thought I'd do a group shot of Homestar's, SB's and Coach Z's characters (left-to-right - Renaldo, Dangeresque and Dangeresque Too). The orange sky was a given since that all scenes for this movie were filmed at dusk, though choosing any shade of green or blue for the ground would clash with Coach Z's body color or Homestar's soles, so the only way to make it work was to find a good shade of lilac to make it feel more like the psychadelic budget flick it's supposed to be.

The picture itself composed of nearly 30 different shades of fabric all at once including secondary shades for dealing with the characters. It even took about 2 straight days of planning the chart to see where they would all come together, and I'm glad it all did.

It's a very different piece of work than what I'd normally undertake, but i'm so proud of it. My second embroidered fanart will come and a third will be made over the course of the year, but in the meantime, enjoy. :)

Homestar Runner and all related assets belong to the Brothers Chaps. And I stitched this one up real good <3
