Captain Picard Made in Beads

For some reason, there doesn’t seem to be too many people that makes stuff with beads anymore.  I remember when I was a kid, it was quite easy to go into pretty much any mom and pop shop and find something made out of beads whether it was a necklace or a holder for your tv remotes.  Well, even though it seems to have largely become a lost art, occasion I still find some cool bead art.  In the past I found some spectacular Sonic the Hedgehog bead art but now I have found some amazing Star Trek bead art!

Reddit user djkimothy made this awesome piece of Star Trek Captain Picard bead art for a friends birthday.

I’m not sure how many beads were used or how long it took to make but judging by the quality and level of detail, I would say a lot of time and effort went into this.  It was definitely worth it too because it turned out looking great!

    I make bead sprites too! This one is awesome and I can tell you based on it’s size, there are probably around 15-20k beads in a project like that. You should check out my deviant art page. My user name is Karulaa, and I have some video game/Doctor Who sprite work that I’ve done on there if you want to see some larger sprites! :)
    Hats off to the person who made this! I have yet to attempt any photo bead spriting. Definitely impressive work!
