Custom Garhim Faction (WIP)

Postby AK_Brickster » Wed Mar 06, 2013 7:52 pm

Looking for input / suggestions on the new sigils I'm working on...

My newest one:

I want it to fit somewhere between the classic look of the Black Falcons and the newer Crownies and Kingdoms sigils. What do you think?

Looks pretty good so far, are you going to make torsos as well? or just shields?

Probably just shields at this point. I got a bunch of blank ones from the online PaB, and I have plenty of suitable torsos already.

EDIT: Added new ones to first post!

I think I like the first one best, but the white alost doesn't quite work. How would it look as gold? The tough thing is the design is almost too delicate but i like it. The bear sigil almost seems too big, but I wonder if you just simply made it smaller if it might work better.

what about a deer skull?

I like the designs, but I'm not overly fond of the animals, especially the lion. Might I suggest using a Gray Wolf as the sigil over the blue background? It would mesh well with the blue/grey colors in the upcoming theme, and the wolf itself fits extremely well with Garheim.

I tried a white bear (above) after a few suggestions on Flickr. See if you like that one better :)

It looks nice, although so do the grey ones. What I would be most worried about, actually, is the busy background - I wouldn't think all those little stripes would come out very well when you try to print these up.

NIce work. Can we see pictures of the printed shield with minifigs? That would make the difference for me in thinking which shield is best. Sans minifigs, I think your newest design with the white shading looks best because I think the gray shading may not show up very well.
