Avengers Request

Postby QueenBex » Tue Nov 20, 2012 7:07 am

Hey all, I'd really like some help getting a pattern for this picture
Image

I want to stitch it for my local comic book store, the guy practically runs it by himself having only one or two days off and even goes in when he's ill etc. He does awesome charity work, currently working on a fine moustache for movember, and he loves Avengers. So I really want to sew this for the stores next birthday, so I have plenty of time to do a large one.

I don't mind how big it gets, the bigger and more detailed the better if I'm honest. I enjoy doing large ones, usually with around 100 colours. 18 count would suit me perfectly, but anything you can work out would be great.

Any help/ suggestions/ comments would be very welcome, thanks a lot guys! :hello:

PS. I've been thinking the top left corner is a bit empty, do you think the Avengers logo would look ok in that corner? I don't have the kinda tools to put that together though on this computer...

How big is "really big?"

I added a logo to this one and reduced it to 50%, if you did a pixel for pixel stitch of this on 18 count, it would be about 33" wide (600 stitches) and 18" tall (337 stitches). Is that what you want? Half that size? etc. Let me know approx. how many stitches wide you want it and I'll do what I can.

Oh yes! 33 inches by 18 inches is perfect! I'm happy to do pixel by pixel. Sorry I should've given nore details! Oh and I use dmc threads, I don't mind if its not, but it'll save me money as I have a ton of dmc threads already! I'm getting all excited just thinking about it!
Thankyou sooo much!

Ok, here it is! 100 colors.

I cleaned up the faces, but I didn't spend a lot of time on the background. You can be somewhat lenient with the pattern; i.e. if there's a single square of one color in the background somewhere, most likely you could replace it with the surrounding color and no one would notice.

The only other thing that sticks out to me is that the black seems really dark compared to the surrounding stuff, but if you look at the actual thread colors, there isn't as big of a difference; I think it will look fine.

Good luck! This is a serious undertaking.

As always, trust your eye rather than the color it says. It looks pretty good on the screen, but you never know in person how it's going to look until you're holding the threads.

:clapping: Thankyou sooo much! It looks really good! I'll see how it comes up, I plan to put up work in progress pics as I go, so I can always ask if I need help/ opinions on the colours. You are awesome! you even did a pdf in colour, how did you know that I prefer working coloured charts ;) You are fantastic! I shall crack on to it as soon as I can! :yahoo:
