That is fantastic jengy!
the tips are great, though i figured them out myself except using the bees wax :P
I have the fabric mounted differently since i don't have a frame to work with, but using both hands is really comfortable i find.
I did use a backlight when i was experimenting with dark fabric, because that was a pain to work with otherwise. Didn't try that with a normal piece. will certainly try it next time :D

I do wonder though how you fix your outer borders after cutting them. can you show a closeup picture of that maybe? i'd be so afraid of the fabric falling apart :P

Nice! I just returned to the forums to get my pixel mojo back before tackling some larger mosaic pieces.

Cinnamon cake

A delicious but very low resolution rendering of a fox. 19 x 16 pixels, 6 colours, 5 hours of icing:

More pictures, and how it was done: https://flashasm.wordpress.com/2015/09/01/this-rendering-algorithm-is-incredibly-slow-aka-cinnamon-cake-pixel-art/


Hand-made antialiased text

The antialiasing value of each pixel was calculated by hand, based on how much was inside the text shapes. Approximately 64 x 32 pixels, 9 levels of antialiasing, 36 colours, 7 hours of painting:

Fox

320 x 220 (approx) pixels, 25 colours, 130 hours of painting. Not a great photo, to be honest:

Cupcakes version 2.0

My first attempt at painting these cupcakes was disappointing, so I decided to try again. 256 x 320 pixels, 64 colours, 300 hours of mixing and painting. Original picture on the left, painting on the right:

This is so awesome! I love to see the pixels on the screen "get real", hahaha
I'm terrible with any kind of craft, though D: I once tried cross-stitching when I was a kid and, man, that was painful.
