Hello! Today is December 1st, 2012, so as many of you who've been following this blog for a while may know, it's time to start Dork Stitch's 3rd annual Sprite Patterns December! I've been looking forward to doing this year's run of new patterns, since I have a ton of requests I've gotten and been working on from comments and e-mails and Facebook, and just because I like trying to blog every day. There are a couple of non-requested sets I've been working on for later in the month, too, that I don't want to go on too much about now, but I am also excited about posting those.
Today isn't going to be the most exciting start to a month of sprite patterns ever, but if you are into both Persona and My Little Pony, it may be your lucky day. I have to say right off the bat that I have never played a Persona RPG, though you guys will not be shocked to know that I have played the fighting game Persona 4 Arena for the XBox 360 and made some patterns based on the merits of that title. Therefore, I do not know as much about the characters as a lot of you reading may, but I can say that Chie, who today's sprite pattern features, kicks people in the face at a good speed and does not have an unnecessarily annoying voice. Plus, her sweatshirt came out really well at the small size required of a sprite pattern, so I was pretty happy with that.
