It is finally done!!


It is stitched on white 14 count Aida using DMC floss.

Size wise -- unknown because I cant find my tape measure.
It measures in stitches-- 150 W x 187 H. It took just over 3 months to complete.

The dragon is based on this dragon sketch. http://thaxllssillya.deviantart.com/art/Xeiraenus-164010675
She gave me permission to use it!!

Thanks everyone!!
The artist who drew the dragon was pretty amazed as well. It would be cool to stitch another one of her dragons -- just not right now. I can't stitch another cross stitch with grey tones yet!! I'm on another search for my next project.(another dragon I think) I want to start in a couple months. (after I have a small break this time)
