Tom Bombem... Cross-stitched
One of Kristina's hobbies is to cross-stitch. Stitching the pictures
one block at a time is very similar to creating sprites for video games.
So I had the idea that maybe she could cross-stitch some scenes
reminiscent to my Tom Bombem games (which I tend to doodle endlessly).
I was all set to create my own cross-stitch pattern generator, but luckily
I checked freshmeat.net first and found
cross-stitch.py which did a great job.
We did have to eyeball the colors a bit, as the thread color-matchers that come
with such programs need a little work. But below you can find the results.
You can make this yourself, here are the directions (in .eps format. You'll
need ghostview or a similar program to view):
This one attempted a more 3-d angle for the ship.
