Am I the only one peeved of by there being only one C in Articuno? It really should be Arcticuno, you know like the Arctic Circle and Antarctica. I’ve even heard people pronounce it with the second C. They do this with Beartic too! What’s with Game Freak and hating this particular C?
In other news, I made some changes to the sprites so that the birds look more uniform. I debated using a lighter yellow for the highlights in Zapdos instead of white, but I liked how it looked like white hot electricity. Let me know if you think I should change it. I had an electric deck growing up so Zapdos is pretty dear to me and exactly why I chose Team Instinct in Pokemon Go. I don’t play anymore, but I still have my old deck.
This is a companion stitch to my Eeveelutions pattern.
I love the design, I cant wait to get started on it. Thanks.
What count would you recommend for this?
All my measurements are based on 14 count because it’s my favorite and it’s the easiest to find in craft stores, but you can use whichever you’re comfortable with.
Brilliant, thanks very much.
Keep up the good work.
