hello everyone =)

Ive had one of those rare things in london, a weekend off!

i didnt want to waste it playing skyrim (although that would have been fun). insted i decided to stitch!

This is what i made:

I thought after all these years of reading, playing and watching Akira Toriyama’s work, I should pay tribute to his art style by trying to recreate some of it in stitched form.

This is a bust of one of the most iconic enemies in the Dragonball manga, Freeza (Freiza in us). The huge and epic battle on Namik between him and Goku is still one of those moments that any manga/anime fan talks about. It lasted an incredible 31 episodes in the tv show and was also the first time you see goku transform into the Super Saiyan form.

This manga went on to inspire many artists including Naoto Ōshima (Sonic), Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto) and many others.

This was the first time ive used black aida for one of my own designs and i really liked it. Although you cant see it to well on this photo it makes the image pop out alot more than the more common used white aida. It does take some time getting used to but after a while you get to know where the holes in the frabric are.

This is the first of many ive designed and over the next few months i will make more and post them for all to see =)

well like always feel free to comment and ask questions about my work and will post again very soon.

bye colin

  2. Moon Noodles says:

    I have it bookmarked. For some reason when I hit follow it just refreshes the page. So I just bookmarked it and come back to periodically to check.

    And yes I am Moon Noodles from sprite stitch. Though I found your blog before I knew you were part of sprite stitch.

    Who else are you going to make from dragonball z?
