I saw this design of The Incredible Hulk originally done by Chef Chad (click here to check out the original and his other art) and wondered if I could give it a try and how big it would be. It was originally done in Lego which for me is a fun new way to find designs along with video game sprites and pixel art.
When I started this I was like "This might be a bad idea" the same way I did with the Bruce Lee design. I also realized that I may not have as many dark gray beads as I needed.
At this point people post photos and say "I made this!" and I laugh because beads that are not ironed on a board are not done. Ironing is the hardest part of the process of making beads I have found out at least for me and it bugs me when people announce they are finished. It is like starting a song and thinking because you have a good hook it's complete. It's not.
This ended up being done in four pieces. Three fourths of the way in I realized that the way I started made it harder than it needed to be but I am happy with the end result and will frame it. Chef Chad was inspired by an image drawn by Dale Keown which I'll include.
