Hiya, I am new here  Cheesy I am Dutch so please forgive my (grammar) mistakes ^^

Well, I did some stitch cross works when I was a kid, and I promised my boyfriend to make a Donnie Darko painting, but I tried & tried but I just can not paint I guess. So now I was thinking about making a needlework from Frank (the bunnyrabbit), all in cross stitch. Now I found some cool pictures, but I guess the end-result has to be huge to make it (especially with the first one, which I like the most, but it's okay, it has to be big):

1. http://img177.imageshack.us/img177/2214/wallpaper201280x1024.jpg I do have the larger version of this one, but it has all the faces from the movie-characters
2. http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/6040/02hi.jpg I think this one will be nice as well.
3. http://img511.imageshack.us/img511/4269/donniedarko50.jpg This is the more abstract version of number 2.

What do you think? How big should I make it? And is the first one possible, or is the second picture nicer? Tell me Smiley
& I want to make it big, it is to hang against the wall above our bed.

I really like the second one better. Maybe a 5x7 or 8x10 I think if you did it any bigger you will be stitching for the rest of your life.

Hmm yeah maybe you are right. I went to the shop today, and the women mentioned it is do-able, but hard. She was like 'omg, what are you getting yourself into?'. So I drew just a little of the pattern today and I am going to take a look how it is going to.. eh look. you know? It is going to be A2-format, so 4 A4's big (I am not good in measure things in English, like inches & foot etcetera  Undecided )
But when it is going to be ugly I will just try number 2, big chance  Cheesy
