Heartwood – Image Gallery
The “Heartwood Project” started as a fun test for my upcoming Dragon Age Inquisitor cosplay.
I knew I wanted to recreate Hawke’s staff (also known as the Staff of Parthalan) from Dragon Age II for my Inquisitor, as no other staff speaks to me quite the same way as that incredible bladed staff does. Blown glass orbs were commissioned for this project to grant a look of authenticity to the staff. I ended up purchasing two orbs from the artist, and after showing both orbs to a friend decided that not only would the second orb have a better home outside of my clutches, but that I could make it more than just a round piece of glass and thus, the heartwood was born.
A post containing a short walkthrough of how I made the heartwood will follow soon. I also wrote a short Dragon Age inspired fan fiction that tells the tale of the heartwood and its importance in a certain critical character’s history. That post is also live on the site now! Enjoy.
