They are mercenary-guilds. With a noble touch, of course. ;)

Re: Emblem/Wappen - Contest!

What is the size you need, and I am assuming these emblems will need to be in 3D.

Do you mean like a Griffin?
Also, Rakust's first one is awesome I think. The second one scares me. :P
I may be able to draw up something but I have no way to graphically color it. If I do do anything, hopefully someone can color it?

I might be able to colour your drawings.
actually I'm talking about a bird with four legs. Where usually birds got two legs, these one should get another pair.


To get you motivated, see some proposals I recieved via Pm.

Re: Emblem/Wappen - Contest!

Drathe, those crests kick ass. You have also restored my hope and faith in humanity.
My only suggestions are that on the last shield, extend the colored field to the whole shield and that one doesn't put color on color or metal on metal (black counts as a color rather than metal), so maybe something other than black.
Kick-ass, man. Kick ass.

Re: Emblem/Wappen - Contest!

I do get exactly what your talking about Anon and if it is really wanted it can be/I will change it. But for context of the game I used a little artistic license with the traditional heraldic concepts to make the crests have a little more pop, more eye catching. As for the colour fields on the Lion shield, while not technically correct again a little artistic licence was used to help give a little more identity/character/difference to the group (same went with the choice of shield shape/type.)

But like I said, anything can be changed/altered or more concept work done if really wanted. If I get some time later I'll have a little dabble :D

Banners concept and battle standard. Wanted give a little more flavor and character to the guilds and their emblems/crests.
