Pokebibs w/pics

Post by Schala-Kitty »

So, I sent some of my stuff up to Anime Boston to sell. Mostly my coasters and some mini-stitches made with Color Variations thread. But there was one thing I sent up that I was really proud of -

A Pokemon bib featuring a Diamond and Pearl Pichu!
(Model baby, J.J. is not mine. He is the son of my former next-door-neighbors)

I liked it so much that I wanted to make another one to sell. However, I'm having trouble deciding between two different Legendaries for the design. So, fellow sprite stitchers, which one would be better?

Mew from Emerald, or a Shiny Shaymin from Platinum?

Yah, the buyer was a young dad who wanted it for his baby boy. I know that a number of people who grew up playing video games are now becoming parents and raising the next generation, so I thought it would be fun to make something they would enjoy and would be useful. It's kinda interesting to now look at baby items and consider them viable canvases.

I love both of the designs and the first pichu is super cute!!!! Baby too.

I think the mew one is really cute and looks like a little baby too.

@jelibe - Yah, I picked that Mew sprite since I loved how it looked like it was peacefully sleeping. I think I'm going to do it next since it has a simpler color palette compared to Shinymin. *laughs*

As promised, here is the second bib in the series - the original cute Legendary as it appeared in Emerald.

Oh, Mew. So very cute, so very elusive. Emerald's version has this pink-peach color scheme that is certainly unique - Mew is usually a bit more on the pure pastel pink side. I suppose that means this will be a bib for a baby girl - or boy. I'm not gonna tell anyone to deny some lil boy his Mew. (Though, the shiny version is a perfect shade of baby blue...) All of that aside, my favorite part of this sprite is how Mew appears to be peacefully sleeping.

Next up will be Shaymin, the latest cute Legendary. I think I may do Jirachi after that...
