Title: Shameless self promotion
Post by: Shiroi Koumori on December 24, 2014, 01:13:52 AM
So... I finally made a deviantart account to show some of my needle work stuff.
http://shiroikoumori.deviantart.com/ (http://shiroikoumori.deviantart.com/)

If you're a devart member, send me llamas!  ;)

I will be adding more stuff in the coming days but the cross stitch projects that Lely is waiting for will be posted at the right time when my page gets more traction. Reality: I need to use a good camera with excellent background lighting for those cross stitches, so they would have to wait.

DA has crocheting now? I did not know that. That's neat I suppose.

Post by: X on December 24, 2014, 02:24:57 PM
Deviant Art does a lot of things artistically related now. You'd be surprised at what you might find.

PS Shiroi Koumori, my bro is also on Deviant Art. You can find his stuff by looking up 'Kypsilon'.

One Llama for U!

Deviant Art has had all sorts of stuff besides drawings and photos as long as I've been on it and it's been at least 5 years since I joined. There are a lot of good tutorials on how to make all kinds of artsy things too.

@X: I've seen your brother's work. He should post more stuff.
@Inccubus: Thanks for the Llama!

If you can model like that with paper, you should consider trying 3D modeling and texturing.

So I've uploaded 2 deviations this week...

1. Saoirse from Song of the Sea (http://shiroikoumori.deviantart.com/art/Saoirse-Song-of-the-Sea-527581934)
This is a great animated film. Watch it if you have time.
Oh and this work got the attention of the animation studio who made it. haha.  8)

2. Nocturne of Recollection Alucard (http://shiroikoumori.deviantart.com/art/Alucard-Nocturne-of-Recollection-Cross-Stitch-528601719)
I think after this, I have enough Alucard to sustain me for a year or two.  ;D

MY Genya Arikado cross stitch won 3rd place and I got 2 cross stitch patterns as my winnings. hahaha!

Anyway, the purpose of me resurrecting this thread is....
I have another mini stitched work "Noctis Bag Tag (http://shiroikoumori.deviantart.com/art/FFXV-Noctis-Cross-Stitch-Bag-Tag-640011848)".
I am just taking a break from my huge project which I started last March and still is currently somewhere around 52% done.

Wow, 1st and 2nd are really crazy too, Im glad that I asked you to share.

What you plan to cross-stitch now? Open to suggestions?
Title: Re: Shameless self promotion
Post by: Shiroi Koumori on October 25, 2016, 02:30:55 AM
It is a hard core group with lots of really talented stitchers.

I am still working on my giant cross stitch project which is already 7 months in the making and not yet done. People are right on the estimated completion time of one year.
Plus I have 2 mini commissions. I've already started on one.
And work is still eating me alive. I want the school term to end already.....

Feel free to suggest, however, there are no guarantees that I'd make them since I also have plans for other stuff. This is a problem with a craft that takes a long time to finish --loads of pending projects.
Title: Re: Shameless self promotion
Post by: Lelygax on October 25, 2016, 01:48:07 PM
I was going to suggest something from Brave Fencer Musashi. But its better not, I don't wanna to burden you even more.

I did win in one of our forum sprite contests. But I'd rather host those contests than take part, since there are far better spriters here. Besides stitching gives me a niche area of expertise plus it is a stress reliever for me.

I have created an Etsy shop for pendants and things.
**Clicky** (https://www.etsy.com/shop/JDFGeekyDesigns)
For Castlevania stuff, I'm selling the Combat Cross from LoS, and an Aria of Sorrow Bat Cross Pendant.
Check 'em out!

@AdrianTepes: Thanks! You've got 6th sense. hehe.
I know Jorge can make a lot of duplicates for those silver pieces, he has the molds and patterns on hand.
Title: Re: Shameless self promotion
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on November 14, 2017, 04:50:48 PM
Yeah, like Shiroi said, I can make more.
There are already over a dozen silver crosses out there. ;)
Title: Re: Shameless self promotion
Post by: AdrianTepes on November 14, 2017, 09:03:25 PM
@Shiroi Koumuri: Well, let's say vampires have our own kind of magic ;)

@Jorge D. Fuentes: Makes me really glad to know that, I really don't want to miss the chance to own one of those.
Have you ever thought of making them on a different, cheaper material as well?
I have the same issue Shiroi Koumuri has, and I can't trust 100% on my country at all. In fact I had a couple of online buys "getting lost forever" in customs in the past, so I'm kinda reluctant to risk buying valuable stuff.
Title: Re: Shameless self promotion
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on November 22, 2017, 08:09:05 PM
@AdrianTepes:

You can't get cheaper (and yet still Precious) than Silver, plus it lends itself well to the look.
My workplace is phasing out non-precious metal work so I can no longer do stuff in Brass or Bronze, but honestly, Silver is the way to go with this.

And yeah, custom pieces always end up expensive.

I hope someone orders them in Gold, someday. :D

Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on November 23, 2017, 09:06:08 AM
It's true! Even 10K, when calculated for size/weight, pegs the Combat Cross at around $250-350. xD
