So Hi! This is my first at an art thread, and I thought 'Why not do emblems for people's Vikings?'. So here I am! Basically, these emblems will be sort of insignia, crest things for your Viking OCs! I will post more in a DNRD later.!

A quick tip

You can ask the Admins to make edits to your OP, you know.  I mean, it will probably take a month or so for them to get back to you after you send a PM with such a request, but they are quite helpful when they do respond.  I speak from experience. :)

You're welcome.  It always surprises me that so few people seem to realize that the Admins (well, one of them, at least) are willing and able to help if you just ask. :)

Features: (you can have up to five features on your emblem, they will not be super detailed as these are insignias, not portraits or whatever. Please specify the poistioning and colour of each feature, and whether you want a solid drawing, or an outline. If you want to have a mirrored feature, please indicate this by saying 'mirror' in brackets at the end of your description. Aslo, no text please, and since these are for HTTYD viking OCs specifically, only HTTYD stuff/stuff that would exist in the canon.)

Border: (please make this a regular, repeating pattern)

Yes!!

Ooh, I definitely want one of these! :D Great idea!  Alright, so...

Background: Forest Green

 

Features:

  1. Center, solid fiery Monstrous Nightmare, wings outspread in a flying/gliding posture, head toward top, tail toward bottom
  2. Center side, one-handed straight sword, pointing down and angled slightly in, double-edged blade solid silver (bit of orange reflection, if possible/practical?), solid black crossguard slightly tapered and gently curving blade-ward, hilt solidly leather-wrapped, solid silver pommel reminiscent of a Skrill's head (if possible/practical) (Mirror)
  3. Bottom center, solid tree, trunk/branches dark gray-brown, crown lighter green (in order to be visible against the background); can be pine or something else, no preference; can be overlaid by the dragon's tail if necessary
  4. Top center, solid hazel recurve bow, string down
  5. Top side, diagonal arrow, overlaid by the bow, pointed toward the corner, arrowhead solid gray, shaft brown, fletching sky blue (Mirror)

If you find outlines necessary to separate features, I'd like those to be white. :)

Ooh, very nice! :D  In my mind, the swords were at the very sides and vertically centered, but no big deal.  Thanks a lot! :D

New features? New features!

Ooh, I may have to ask for a remake of this using the new features!  Quick question though:  What do you mean by "shield" shape?  Can I ask for a specific type of shield shape?  Because there are several, such as tower, kite, heater, or boss, to name a few.

I'll edit the main post, but by 'shield', I was refering to a heater shield shape. And sure, I could redo yours if you'd like!

Medieval nerds unite!

Alright, that's kinda what I figured, but I just thought I'd check. :)  Thanks!  I'd like it in the Shield shape, with a border of triangles alternating between white and purple. (Somewhere between Tyrian, Royal, and Electric?)

Custard is good... Sand is good... Therefore, sand is custard.

Ooh, thank you! :D

Hello! So I am not sure if you are still doing these, but if you are, could I have one please? I really like them! :) Also, if you would like me to do some art in return for you, I would be happy to!

 

Background: Light olive green and light aquamarine if possible - maybe half and half (vertically)

Shape: Shield please!

Border: Dark brown, something like swirls, something medieval and regal looking if possible

Features:     1.) Shovelhelm head silhouettes also dark brown (mirror - facing away from each other)

...I actually think that's it!

 

Thank you so much in advance!
