I'm obsessed with Dragon Age.  Origins is the first game in the series and if you haven't played it, you should.  I'd venture as far as to say it's my favorite video game of all time.  So when I got PC Stitch I wanted to make a DA cross stitch design.  I chose the image on the game cover.  I started this in June 2014 and had to take about 3 months off when I was sewing for a craft fair.  Finished design size is about 12" by 12" give or take.  The colors are more vibrant in real life, but I couldn't get my camera to pick up on it even though I tried different variations of lighting.  So keep in mind that the reds are more red, but they're showing up a little pink in the pictures.







Here's the original picture for reference

I'm so happy that I actually finished something this big and I'm really pleased with how it came out.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Wow, so much to look at!  I especially like the glowing orb effect.  How many colors did you use in this piece?
