    If you are a Royal Founder (or Founder) Virtual Collector or above, come up with an idea, then post here.
    We don't really have a list that we work from top to bottom.
    It's more a question of detail. A simple design will get done first.
    A design with lots of detail gets put into a queue to wait for somebody with the artistic skill and hours to devote to the task.
    A shield divided into 4 or more sections with 4 or more custom charges is a lot of work, and might not ever be finished.

    One way to fast track a design is to draw up something yourself, or ask another community member to help.
    Please drop by the site, and read the rules. http://sotacoa.com/rules
    And play around with the generator to get an idea of what the colors and patterns look like. http://sotacoa.com/generator
    Or, do a web search for heraldry, 15th century, to get ideas.
    We have made light and dark shades of the traditional colors to give a little more flexibility than old world heraldry.

    When you come up with an idea, we'll be here.

    i have found two images not sure if wither can be used or not
    [​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG]
    not sure if you can take the puppy out of the picture and just use the wolf with the wings touching the edges. and the back ground black. that would be my first choice but i understand if it cant be done.

    my next choice would be as follows
    [​IMG]
    just the center circle of the picture against a black background

    i tried making one on the sota generator but i dont really like it and not sure if it even saved

    Roper,
    I can try and redraw the winged wolf. Keep in mind much of the detail will not be there. Not sure how long until I can get a rough up for you, but if nothing shows up here in the next week or so give the thread a bump.

    Ugh, I am in the middle of research for an Italian family this may take some time as Italian is not one of my languages. Their lineage gets foggy around the 1720s. Once that gets finished the winged wolf is up for completion. I have 4 versions sitting in my folder in various states of progress. Two of which I will cannibalize cause I only like certain parts. One can get really weird when drawing at 4 in the morning :)

    Love the concept. I'm curious to see Ronan's designs and which one you choose.

    Me too!
    Oh, wait...I'm the one supposed to be doing this! Can you tell I'm not doing too well with it. The position of the wolf is causing me grief. I pick it up play with it for a few hours, get sidetracked, then it sits for bit. Where did that trademarked "soon" graphic go :)
