Pixels? No, threads.

You may see code in your gaming console, but I see embroidery floss.

Fable I and Fable II both have very pretty design elements and motifs. I’m talking about the decorations on the doorways, or the tatoos, or on the flags and banners. If you follow the symbols through their anthroplogical development, some of them are really pretty, um, lewd. Ok, primative. Earthy.

Anyway, I started with this pattern on the bedspread. I think they’re really just trees.

The work you’re looking at is just a thread-sketch, but I think I got it pretty close.
