8Bit NES Keychains and Rings

8Bit NES Keychains and Rings

Hello everyone! I'm new to the forums, but I wanted to share my project with you.

So, I've been working on keychains and rings in the form of NES pixel art. So far I only have Mario characters, but as I go along, I want to delve into other games. Just curious what everyones thoughts were on the ones I've got so far. Any feedback would be great, from characters you'd like to see to how I can improve my work. Also, if you have anything similar you'd like to share, I'd be happy to see it!

Let me know what you think. :mrgreen:

very neat. Are they wood or plastic? Some almost look wooden.

Good luck on the sale.

Thanks! They're actually 3D printed with plastic. Depending on what colors I have and need to use it's either PLA or ABS.

Joe from STREEMERZ, the keychain could act as the grappling chain. :)

Ones I think would be popular would be:

* Bait (meat) from Zelda 1
* Large heart container from Kid Icarus
* Tanuki suit from Super Mario Bros 3
* Any/all of the different coloured Koopa shells from Super Mario Bros 1/2/3
* Lakitu (without the spiny, e.g. just the little turtle in the cloud)
* Megaman (please not Megaman X or whatever; hate the cartoon look)
* Konami's old logo (still looks better than their present-day crap)
* Exclamation point of surprise from the Metal Gear series
* Any of the puyo from Puyo Puyo

I was trying to think of some items/equipment from Bionic Commando that would be cool too but none really came to mind.

And for me? I'd love to have the below, which would be for a keychain holding all the keys to my Candy 25 arcade cabinet:

* Main character/player in Black Tiger/Black Dragon
* ...or... Spinning Scull (not a typo) from the same game -- I can easily get a better picture of this one for sure, as the Amiga version I linked looks dorky/stupid

I bet rainwarrior would like one of the Black Dragon ones too. :-)

So many ideas! I'll definitely see what I can do :)

I just made this guy today.

I'm the only one posting now, but I'm totally cool with that. Keeping everyone updated, cause you never know who will look and either enjoy what they see, help me get some business, or get some inspiration for their own projects.

I got the zapper done today, and it looks AWESOME. I think that people are going to enjoy this one.
