Loyal Geekologie reader Anat cross-stitched this bust of Squall Leonhart from Final Fantasy VIII while studying Game Design at Vancouver Film School.
This is done on white Aida cloth, 22 count (22 stitches in an inch). It took 6 months to make (I was actually working on it in classes, too. The teachers were less than thrilled, but understood when I showed them what that pattern was of). I made the pattern myself (with the help of a pattern program, of course) and based it off of Squall's profile picture. It's made of 24 colors and is approximately 11 x 8 3/4 inches big. That would mean there are over 40,000 individual stitches in it. . I promised myself I would never do something so detailed again... But it's been so long and the bug is catching up with me again... Maybe I'll start something new!
Good looking, Anat! I don't think Squall could look any more real. Unless, of course, you saw him in real life. In which case, God he's dreamy.
Hit the jump for the closeups.
Thanks to Anat, the woman behind the needle.

DeviantARTist Zoroko went and created this Zora Link costume for herself to wear to Ohayocon. It looks good. No -- great. No -- AMAZING. It almost makes me wish I knew how to sew. But it DOES make me wish I could have sex underwater without drowning (I never learned to swi... / Continue →
