For the past thirteen months I’ve been hard at work world-building for the next series of novels I’m putting out. Part of said world-building has been establishing heraldry for all the various places and families in my setting, and I wanted to do something special for that.
Rather that simply draw new art for the crests, I opted to reuse and re-purpose existing medieval art. It makes everything seem so much more authentic, and it’s been a fun deep-dive into this historical skill.
Of course we re-purposed the art for multiple uses, because it had become a thing of it’s own.
