Thread: We want to see your crests!
I don't think Jessica is still taking requests, but there is a thread in the backer subforum for crest help.
Thanks opifex & Ratatoskr! I'll head over there to see if I can get any 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.
Well I cant post it on here, but you can look at my avatar.

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

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.

Didn't realize that the avatar and profile pictures where separate...
I've got four currently, going to use the one from jessica in the game though.
Got this one from Jessica.

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.
