    I believe Jessica has stopped doing requests, but if you go over to the "Need help with your crests" thread in the kickstarter section gaelvin or someone else may be able to help you out.

    I don't think Jessica is still taking requests, but there is a thread in the backer subforum for crest help.

    Here I made another try, a beardy helmet


    I'm starting to understand how to make things not too bad (subjective isn't it ?) without resorting to simple tracing over stuff.

    Leaning towards horn+shield chicken in my profile. My drawing style does not really mesh well with the hard black/white requirements and need to avoid detail, so this has been a good exercise.

    Question on the no text thing - what if it's a) hand-done, and/or b) appropriately stylized? I have a few broad-nib pens and calligraphic brushes that I wouldn't mind breaking out for a sweet little blackletter-style crest.

    I think your profile avatar one is hilarious and awesome.

    Mine's my avatar. Not particularly Norse, but I like it.

    I made this banner with the intent to depict the world serpent and son of Loki, Jörmungandr, holding on to his tail as he encircles the world tree, Yggdrasil. I enjoyed making it very simple and iconic.

    Mine is based on Fenrir, a son of Loki, and foretold to kill Zeus during Ragnarok. This is his dapper version


    Fenrir feeling like a sir by bast_imret, on Flickr


    And his regular version

    I'm also going to investigate a crest based on my last name, as I believe it has some roots in that region.

    I think it's more a question of modern English taking you out of the ye-olde world to see it there. Same reason to not have an automatic rifle for a banner.

    Zeus ? Are you certain ?
    Well Odin and Zeus are counterparts when comparing Norse mythology and Greco-roman mythology. Though Thor is also often cited as Zeus's conterpart due to his attributes, god of storms and lightnings.

    Thanks! I initially went for some stylized landscapes but felt that this had more soul

    bast, I really like the sun eating aspect of your Fenrir.
