1.31.13 Scott Pilgrim WIP

It's been 11 days since an update, and I've finally made enough progress to share it with you.

Envy's dress is completely done, so now I have to choose between proceeding to her legs and boots or taking care of her right arm first. I'm leaning towards her legs first since I'll move on to Todd and his vegan powers after I finish with Envy, and Todd's right by Envy's arm.

This is the ninth straight regular update, so next time will be a full project shot, so get excited for that!

1.20.13 Scott Pilgrim WIP

Envy's hair is done!

I elected to stitch her face and move from left to right to make everything as simple as possible for me. From here, I move on to her dress. It's got a bit of a wild pattern to it, but there's a lot of white in it, too, so it might end up going pretty quickly.

What time is it?

Ornament time! 

I love the character designs for the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time, and some of them lend themselves well to crafts!
He's quite fancy! 

So, I made my own Peppermint Butler!

He lives in the Candy Kingdom and  "butles" for Princess Bubblegum.

I had lots of reference material to work from, most of them being black and white, but it was mostly used for the details - counting how many stripes, where his bowtie fell... 

Started with a few coats of white...

I took over the table! Made sure not to mix up my coffee and the brush water!
 Then it was onto the red and blue! 

Stripes and his little suit jacket!

Adding the black outlines really made it stand out!

There's his cute little face! 
He had a home on our tree for a little while, but I didn't have the heart to pack him away. He's hanging on a hook in the bedroom right now. :) 

I have a few other characters in mind to do this with, but we'll see when I actually get around to them . :P

1.11.13 Scott Pilgrim WIP

I used to do these things every week, didn't I?

Well, I've gotten a lot accomplished in the last week, so here's an update just seven days since the last one!

The light pink that makes up the majority of Envy's hair is finished, and I'm almost done with the right side of her hair (the left as you're looking at it). You can see where I'm not quite done with it at the bottom. You may have also noticed the white gap just left of center. That's going to be her eyebrow, and since there's some more black stitching nearby, I wanted to fill in the space in between the two parts first.

I'm trying to decide if I want to do all of her hair before I start working on her face. Part of me says work left to right, the other part says I'll hate that I put all the red shades away for such a short amount of time just to bring them back out again. We'll see what happens.

1.4.13 Scott Pilgrim WIP

The tiny orange bird next to Gideon's head is done, so I've skipped past that and moved on to Envy's hair. I waited until I finished the main section of her hair before posting an update.

From here, there's lots of accent colors and shading work going on to finish off Envy's hair. I've left more around Envy in the picture than I normally would so you can see where in the project she is.
