Link, from the Gameboy Advance Title, The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Slow day at work allowed me the time to do this between calls.

Forgot to post this to the blog when I made it.

Cape Mario - Case

Cape Mario - Case, originally uploaded by dash16.

So, I've been experimenting with creating a display case for my PixelBlocks creations. Ideally, the case will have two purposes: One, to protect the piece while it ships through the mail, and Two, to serve as a frame for displaying it. It has to be clear plastic, to let light through, yet firm enough to stand up on its own. I like how this turned out, and best of all it was cheap. The screws and bolts and washers were $2, and the plastic sheets were $2.50. I think I'm going to drill more holes, for a total of 8 all the way around so it is really well contained. As it stands, the plastic bows out a bit because the corners are tightened down, and I think if I put 4 more holes in the middle, between each corner it should really hold it in place. It's either that or some beads of hot glue in the corners of the piece. We'll see, I'm going to take it home with me and play around with it some more. I know for starters I'm going to need shorter bolts, as it stands there's at least half an inch protruding from the back.

I'm one step closer to having a piece I can ship through the mail, get your credit cards ready!

WALL-E mk.2

WALL-E mk.2, originally uploaded by dash16.

Now that WALL-E is out on DVD I was able to get a screencap of the end credit sequence to get the pixelated WALL-E and EVE. Turns out the sprites are pretty complex, I had to clean them up a bit and manually convert the colors to my PixelBlocks color palette. Unfortunately I ran out of dark grey so had to make his eyes black and dropped one of his arms. He turned out way bigger than I expected and have come to the realization that I don't have nearly enough white to make a companion EVE for him.

I really like how the Goomba turned out. Dark orange is the perfect color to use for their tone.

This one took a lot of blocks, and ran out of green so I couldn't make the pipe any bigger.
