Aneskia stitch by nocturnaliss Aneskia stitch by nocturnaliss
I'd done a whole batch of my characters in cross-stitched versions several years ago, and decided recently I just could do better. So, I got to it, with the clear idea to make them 50x50 pixels+background this time around. She's the first done ^^

You can't really see it, but her clothes are satin thread. I also experimented a bit with two stitching methods; I always go one cross at a time, but for the background I decided to 'line up' my stitches so they'd (almost) all flow the same way. I doubt you can tell the difference. It'll likely show more for the second stitch I'll do, as the background of that one is monochrome.

I'd also played with the idea of using some glow in the dark thread, but I was so glad to be done I said screw it e.e

I'll just complain that I made her skin a tad too dark... but she looks great on my desk :D
