    Hello!

    On the advice of the lovely NirAntae, I'm posting to ask for some help with creating a device. I have two designs in mind and I'm not sure which will look better/be more suitable. I've managed to make something similar to one of them using your Blazon Builder, with placeholder charges for the ones I'd really like to use, but can't figure out the other one at all. :oops:

    So if anyone would like to take on the task, I can PM my ideas and the rough design I did make for you to work on...

    Thank you! :)

    If an artist doesn't jump in, please PM me, and I'll assign somebody.
    Or maybe take a shot myself, if it's easy.

    Karrolanth,

    Here is a rough mock up from what you described. I will let the Sovereigns fill you in on whether or not it meets the correct format.

    I see no issues.
    Do we have that rose in our database?
    If not, we should add it.

    Yes, these are all charges from the database. Just awaiting Karrolanths approval.

    It was all Karrolanth's idea. I was just the vessel, thanks for the good vibes.

    It is very nice, yes... I think the colours stand out well. I'm just bugging him with some other questions, though, before I decide... ;)

    Edit: I know what I see in my mind's eye, but I'm no artist and can't get it down on paper. Even trying to describe it to someone else was a bit difficult... so thank you very much, O'Sullivan, for trying to figure it out for me!

    From inbox....
    I can adjust it however you would like. The only important part right now honestly is to get the blazon for your coat of arms down first. Then when the generator launches you can adjust the scales to your liking. I will swap out the rose for the heraldic one and tweak the size of fleur de lis for you. just let me know if there is anything else I can help out with. I'll have a new version up for you after I watch Game of Thrones....:D

    Then compliments to Karrolanth for the design! Still, a good design can be rendered badly. This one has very pleasing proportions.

    I've entered it in the College. If you wind up swapping the rose, or adjusting the size, that's no issue... We'll upload the tweaks. But, you can consider the design reserved.

    Hee hee... yes, go and watch!

    The rose you've used does fit nicely into the design, but I'd love to see the other type and compare. Plus that other design that I tried to describe, which might be harder for you to picture since I didn't have any rough designs to give you for that one... :)

    That's the approximate layout via the builder. I think you'd be happier with about that size for the fleur de lis (I left one a roundel because for some reason, if you make all three lozenges, they get bigger. Very odd.)

    Thanks NirAntae, I'll use that as a guide to go by for the resizing.

    Ok. My opinion, either is good.

    Personally, I like the Tudor rose version.

    I have no strong opinion for the size of the fleur de lis.
