Bib progress

Been busy lately, but I made some good progress on the bib.  I'm extremely happy about how this turned out.  I've only ever worked on 18 count fabric so I was very skeptical about working on 14 count cloth.  The bigger pixels meant it would have much more noticeable gaps in between each stitch but the good side is that smaller art will be about 25% larger than it would be on 18 count cloth and this works wonderfully in my favor at the moment. So here's 1/3 of the bib! I ditched the old crying Yoshi because who wants a depressing baby bib!? Bad idea so I just swapped for a more cheerful pose.

   

I used a very dark grey around his eyes and mouth for shadows but quickly switched to a light grey for the body curve shadow.  It also looks like he has a squashed bug on the bottom of his shoe but that's just because my stitches are not as consistant as I'd like them to be.  I like how the sprites have double layered outlines. I wasn't sure if I wanted to make the outline thinner but I did it in Paint.net and it made Yoshi look shallow.  It still bugs me now with the thick outline, but the thin outline would've bugged me much more. 

I LOVE how this is going so far. Don't worry, I'll update sooner this time since I'm on a roll for stitching.
