Captain America Cross-Stitch by saber4734 Captain America Cross-Stitch by saber4734
I was given some information from a fellow DA member regarding the original picture I used to make this pattern.

It was drawn by Bryan Hitch and it's the "Ultimate" version of Captain America. Ultimate versions had some costume changes. That explains no wings on his mask. And in the second version, he wore a helmet.


This is by far the best piece of cross-stitch I have ever done. The time I spent on this is probably 3-4 months. I stopped working on it many times but eventually finished it. The sunlight hitting the shield was a project of its own and it turned out so well.


INFORMATION:
Pattern size: 166 x 221 stitches
Aida Used: 14 count
Number of threads used: 45 DMC

No I am afraid I do not give the patterns of my larger pieces out to anyone. That way they remain one of a kinds. I do have a piece of just Captain America's head i'd be willing to give you.

Actually I do not share these larger patterns with people. I made them myself without using any programs to generate the pattern. So it is essentially one of a kind. I prefer it stays that way. i would be willing to give you a smaller head pattern. It might be a few days since I am currently without interenet and using my mom's computer at her office. I will try and stay in touch.

All your x-stitchings are awesome! Did you make your own patterns? Or did you use some kind of stitching program or photoshop?

Thank you. I made all the patterns using Microsoft Paint. Which basically means I used by eyes and my own talent to make patterns from artwork. I grauntee all of my Marvel patterns are one of a kinds.

Very nice, It is a pleasure to see somone else that likes cross stitch and comic books. I have done a few of them myself, i also make my own patterns. I have done some large ones, my favorite is the variant cover of Avengers 12 done by Goerge Perez. It is about 42 x 52 inches in size and has 90 colors. It took me 2 years to cmplete it. I will post a pic of it on page in the next couple of days. I would like to hear from you. Thks James Alvarez

Well I make my patterns very differently than others. Some people just buy patterns and others use graph paper. Most common is the use of computer programs to make a pattern from a picture. I take a picture and put it on MS Paint. Then I make a copy and make a pattern from it using pure skill. I can then stitch it from the computer using MS Paint's "gridline" feature. Anyway, I started out doing small stuff and then one night i'm watching Daredevil and it hit me. I said "Greg, if you can take a tiger paw and make a pattern then why not take Daredevil and do the same. After weeks of making a pattern Daredevil was stitch and my true potential was found. Spider-Man came next, then Captain America, and finally Wolverine.

If you want there is a program just for cross stitch, you can import a pic and the program will convert it and asign colors and symbols. You chose how many colors,size and fabric count, then you can print the pattern. The software I use is called Patternmaker and the company is Hobbyware. You can get a free version on there website. Take a look it very good. Only draw back is you have to delete any unwanted images before printing.

I'll stick with my own way of doing things. I may get your advice on skin tones because I tend to have trouble with that. But I am not planning on stitching anymore comic characters anytime soon.

Ha, your cap kicks mine in the ass. I'm guessing you didn't use a game sprite.

No I used a detailed piece of artwork I found online. One that originally had fighter jets flying in the background. I tend to get rid of the backgrounds because it is way too much work to do. I did see your Cap while viewing your gallery. Not bad for a game sprite.

Do you plan on selling the pattern or anything? I would love to have this pattern! We are a huge Marvel family... Our wedding was done in Marvel - our wedding cake toppers were Capt. America and Black Widow and our first daughter is even named after Phoenix lol...

lol WOW! Well uh you see I wouldn't know what to charge even if I were to think of selling it. The framing alone cost around $300 and I don't even know how many hours I put into it. You have to understand that I would have to get a lot for it. It has sentimental value. Not to mention it looks great on my wall. :)

Oh I know! It took me forever to decide the correct colors to use. I even had to reconstruct the right side of the shield because the artwork I used to make the pattern had it cut off.

Yeah I tried finding similar Cap pictures with shields to use for a reference but in the end I simply did it by what I thought looked best. Captain American is by far the best piece I have done so far.

Ok yeah that all took some major dedication. And picking it back up everytime I got tired of stitching it took dedication also.

The picture in my gallery of the framed version doesn't do the framing justice but you should still go look at it.
