That's awesome ^^ I looked all three stitches up as soon as you posted their names the first time hehe.. I've never really done mosaic stitch myself, but I believe I'd agree that it looks and covers better (though good cross stitchers can make those cover just as well)
I really adore your embroideries. My boyfriend has a shirt made of aida (I found out, very amusing) and I might just have to steal it and embroider pixel art on it... Though on aida, I believe cross stitch may cover better than mosaic if I don't wish to use really thick floss.
What fabric are you working on?

It's 14 count plastic canvas.

How did you join the diagonal pixels?  I tried that on a test piece of 7 count canvas, and there was a bit of a gap between them. 

I'm also assuming that with mosaic stitch, you're not concerned about the back of the model; the rear stitches look much different than the front.

Way to go, though.  I love the whole sprite thing.  And the moogle background looked almost like it was another fabric surrounding it.

I'm not sure what you mean - I'm guessing you're just not reusing the same holes?   Here's a diagram of multiple mosaic stitches:

And yes, since I just frame them, I'm not concerned about the back.   It'd probably be a good idea to use a different stitch for loose items like bookmarks and such.

No, this is what I meant:

When showing a rounded/slanted edge, 8-bit images will often have a single pixel fixated diagonally.  When you stitch them, especially if you do one colour at a time, there is a bit of a gap.  At least, there was in mine.  There didn't seem to be any gap with yours, though.

I think, however, that when you stitch the remaining colours and fill it in, it closes it a bit.

Well, that's just real damned elegant! So far I only know how to cross stitch, but I'm seriously going to have to add this plastic canvas stuff to my list of things to learn.

I'm sorry I wasn't on craftster when this was posted. My Husband would love these for his office. Can you point me in the right direction? How do I get started?

It's easy.     First, I'd just go down to a bookstore and get an encyclopedia of needlepoint stitches (I work at a Half Price Books and we get them in all the time).      Then find a sprite online of whichever character you want to translate (look for "The Shyguy Kingdom" on google - that's probably the best video game sprite archive there is).     Then you can either open it up in photoshop or paintshop pro or run it through pcstitch (you can download it for free) to get the grid. 

I personally just prefer using a mosaic stitch for the character + filling stitch for the background, but you can use a tent or cross stitch as well.

*If you get the sprite from The Shyguy Kingdom, you'll have to do some cutting since you'll wind up downloading an entire sheet of sprites.
