Hey guys, I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I'm looking to make fun centerpieces for my upcoming wedding, and I wanted to involve those awesome 8-bit/16-bit bead characters tons of people sell in the Artist's Alley. However, I wasn't in the market for them during ACen, so I didn't pick up any cards or names of the people who do it. Any suggestions for websites I can find them or friends you know who commission them? All help is appreciated! :)

Just look online for the sprite you want to do and then each pixel is a bead. That simple.

If you do happen to want to make your own, JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts, and i'm sure other craft stores, sell the Perler Beads. We also sell square-shaped boards that hook together to allow for bigger pieces.

I'm sure if you look around the internet, you can find a program/already made up graphs that show a picture - in graph form - so you can break it down into pixels. I believe there are sellers online that offer packages of the smaller sized ones/more colors, but at least craft stores are a good place to start to make your own. Other than that, go to etsy, ebay, or straight up Google and type in "perler bead pixel art" and I"m sure you'll find plenty there XD
