That's awesome!

And since it's done with beads, it reminds me of a set of mug-coasters my auntie has. That's really cute though. -Chuckles- Was the design entirely yours? I couldn't /draw/ something like that let alone do it with beads. ^^

Erm... The design.

Well - I've been hitting Elfwood and Deviant Art for ideas. I have a program that will transfer a picture into beads.

By the time I'm done with them though - trying to make them simple without a lot of colors in them - they are very generic and only hold a passing resemblance to the original. They are such that I think anyone would be able to draw it. So, I'm not sure if I'm infringing on any copyright at all.

However, the hatchling was actually done freehand, after seeing it on a cross-stitch pattern.

When I go to sell these, if any of the creations are derived from someone else's artwork, I'll attempt to contact them, show them a picture of what I've done, and ask their opinion as to whether I can sell it or not.

Very nice Shalyn. I liked the hatching egg one too. Sara's comment about coasters made me think maybe you could use bigger beads and make dragon/hold emblem coasters?
