How I Bead Sprite - Part 1 by Ginabobina101 How I Bead Sprite - Part 1 by Ginabobina101
Hey there!
This is the first tutorial I have ever done, so I hope this goes well.

First, I would like to give a HUGE thanks to :iconoh-that-demoness6: for helping me though this. She was my proof checker. And I must say, she did an awesome job at it! ^O^
[PS - Go check out her art ;3]

This was inspired/requested by :iconcaptainspaz:
She was interested in how I make these, so I just decided to make a tutorial x)

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! :heart:

Are you sure you're zoomed in all the way?
It won't add it if you are not zoomed in.

You should get GIMP. :O

Haha, why? Does this look harder than it has to be?
I actually don't even do it like this anymore, I use Photoshop.
I figured I'd leave this up because it's a good way to start out. Especially if all you have is paint.
Does GIMP have good tools to do this? Maybe I should check it out.

GIMP is just a free version of Photoshop for people who don't have money. :)

What do you mean by regular beads?
Just beads that aren't ironed together?

You should be able to find them in craft stores.
I see that you're from Italy, but hopefully that's the same.
You could also look on Ebay.
For Italy Ebay, you'd be best searching for "Hama beads"
Good luck and hope you find some.
If you need help or have any other questions, please feel free to ask :3

thank you very much!! :D now I know where to get the beads, but how do I assemble them? and where to find the basis for it?

You're quite welcome :D
To assemble the beads, you'll need to put them on a pegboard.
They make giant square ones the you can connect together to make them as big or small as you like.
Here's a picture of one from Hama's website.

They should also be on Ebay or at the craft store where you find the beads.
