Just a quick one to finish up my portfolio for Otakon this year. This is the logo for Studio Ghibli. If you think it looks like the same character as last post you'd be right! Totoro is the main logo for the studio. Think of him as the Mickey Mouse of Japan, which is funny because Disney owns the American distributing rights to Ghibli's movies. The cross stitch version turned out better then I expected, compared to the original.
Just finished this and I'm already onto the next! I should be able to get the next one done quickly, and then I can start on some more big ones. I really like how this came out, and I love the look on his face. The character is from My Neighbor Totoro, one of the best animes ever. I got the pattern from a French blog, she also has the Totoro logo and a few Ponyo patterns as well.
I wanted to try something simple between big projects, so I went with Totoro. I'm not really sure if I like how it came out or not. The reason I did the white floss on black aida is that I just got glow in the dark floss and wanted to try it out. It glows green, but it's a pretty light glow. Maybe after a week or so on the wall, it will be brighter. The next project on the list is a big one, so I'll try to put up some WIP shots in the meantime.
