    Thanks for the feedback NirAntae! I will do some experiments with the paddles and Draconny.
    Is there an easier way to make the Draconny texture? an SVG file perhaps? As you can see I kind of gave up trying to get all of the texture on in that sample :p
    There will definitely be a black border around the shield, all I did was just increase the stroke around the main shape in that sample. Is there a particular size / proportion it should be?
    My illustrator kung-fu is very rusty but this has been good practice!


    Thank you for your insight Sir Frank :D It is most likely something that a family member did for fun rather than any legitimate family lineage. My grandmothers maiden name was Lutze so that implies a German ancestry. Perhaps it was created to celebrate a marriage in the family. I don't recall anyone in the family talking about brewers as such, however the name Brouwer means brewer in Dutch (google translate says bierbrouwer) so it's probably more symbolic of the name rather than the trade, which ties back to the idea of a family union. Very romantic indeed :D

    Oooh, I really like that! One of our guys will have to grab those paddles and get them in proper format for the ig-generator for you. :D

    I don't know of a single beer-loving squirrel that is not also a fighter.

    Merciful...where did the image come from? Is it copyright protected?

    If one of our artists doesn't contact you in the next day or two, please let me know and I will assign somebody.

    *edit* Ronan beat me by seconds.

    Found on Pinterest. It's a rather common tattoo theme thus I highly doubt it's copyrighted or even could be. I'll probably have this tattoo'ed on my body before SotA final release. :)

    Merciful Fate... do you want That image, or a more standard heraldic interpretation of it?

    For Merciful...it is copyrighted :)
    That being said keep in mind the charges for the generator will most likely be 1 color, 2 at the most. The design will have to be changed by at least 35% (not including color) to stay away from the copyright. We (most of the herald artists) are able to do that. I'll come up with something and post a link for you sometime on Monday. Any other art types wanna give it a go, feel free!

    Could jam a Cherokee Rose into a Heraldic Rose.
