This was what I made for my brother (a hard-core gamer).  It's old snake from Metal Gear Solid.  I haven't played the game, but I've seen him play it...does that count?

Let's look at that mustache of steel!!



here's the close-up.  I used satin, brick stitch, split stitch...er... I think that's it.  And I coloured the black areas with marker.

And here's the back side...


Here he is, unframed...



And here he is, framed.



I'm wondering whether I should use brick stitch to fill in the white areas.  I didn't intend to, but I'm wondering if it looks "unfinished"--what do you think? (I haven't given it to my brother yet--so I have time to make changes...)

This is awesome! I would leave the white areas as they are. It gives a really good contrast to the other colors you used.

wow.. i totally respect your embroydery skills!! i would leave the white too.. but the frame you chose doesnt do your work justice in my opinion... maybe just a plain black, thin border frame would make your work stand out more..

You did a very good job embroidering that!  I think it looks great without adding the white.  I do agree that a different frame would be better.  Snake is a rough n' rugged guy and the frame is a little too frilly.  Good choice on the colors of floss and your stitches are so perfect.

Holy crap, this is amazing!  Shocked I think that the white areas look fine & you absolutely don't need to fill them in unless you want. Great job!

Awesome, awesome, awesome! I love video game references in crafting. Cheesy I'd have to agree about using a different frame if you can, but other than that, this looks great. I've already hit the "This Rocks" button.

Wow! that's amazing. I would leave the white areas, it provides a different texture to the stitches.
