I know these are only tangentially related to cartography, but since I saw so many good crests made for maps here, I thought I could give it a try.
A need a number of main Crests for different clans, and some others that are related to these main crests.
It doesn't need to be really that pompous, is just that I cannot draw.
Still, hope someone can help me.
These are very beautiful crests! But what I need is way simpler, actually. :\
More like the shield with a 2D animal painted on it, some have one or another detail but is essentially just the 'shadow' of an animal for each.
I need them to represent the different clans in my novel, so it probably will see commercial use.
I recommend you make these yourself. Do a google image search for 'blank shield' and download a very simple and plain one, then do a google image search for 'heraldry animal' and download one that is out of copyright (ie a copy of an old crest, not a modern image belonging to an artist). Then combine the two images in a programme such as windows paint. Should be pretty simple.
Yeah, that could work as a placeholder, but some of the insignias are a little bit specific (like a Rabbit holding a gold coin with both hands and biting it).
I'll try my best though.
Thank you for your advice.
Man, those are wonderful. You can derail this thread any time you want to post these beauties.
these are really amazing!
I came by this thread by chance, since I was more of looking for for maps, but these crests are also really interesting.
Since I am new to this forum, I can't write personal messages yet. But I also would be interested in heraldic pictures / figures for a commercial project. Would you be interested in delivering parts for crests for an online game? Your work would be paid of course!
