For my story, I want to create a coat-of-arms dominated by the figure of a swan. I've been snooping around google images looking for a heraldic displayed swan that looks impressive and imposing enough to be a symbol for a vast Imperial state.

The best I could find was this:

Which isn't particularly impressive at all. Would anyone know how to go about growing parts of him? Removing the ridiculous looking feet? Drawing a completely new one that looks halfway impressive? I just need ideas, I'm sure I could draw it myself; any ideas would be appreciated!
