Well, I've created over 100 Perler bead sprites now.  I haven't posted all of them here, just the more uncommon ones.  After all, does the world really need to see another 1-Up mushroom perler pic posted? o_o I am running out of wallspace to hang these things on.

I mentioned something about the DOOM weapons a while back(monochrome-gs.deviantart.com/a…). Even though it's an easy Perler art to do, it was a bit of a challenge for me, because the reference image I used in making the Super Shotgun threw me off. Here's the link to the image.
