texture!




This is smallified, the actual image is somewhere around enormous dimensions, I suggest clicking on it to check out my obsessive texture work. Fun with faux finish brushes!

The helmet and frilly stuff will be totally redrawn, it's currently just a trace of a source image. Hopefully I'll manage to figure out how to draw some floral decorative stuff that actually look slike a combo of Sam's hair and lots of AV input cords and stuff. That'll be hard/annoying/fun/really awesome in the end.
+ = ???

The purple porcupine is also obviously just a tenous sketch, but, SURPRISE, porcupines have *actually* been used in heraldry before? Who knew! And yeah, it'll be purple, eventually.

I dunno what sort of helmet to have. I wish there was some sort of Official Seddie Hat. o_0

Most proud of: the Puckett & Benson banner, which I drew from scratch and didn't trace from *anything*. Booyah.

Also, since last you saw, I totally redrew and colored a new fencing sabre and fork. It's actually a civil war cavalry sabre and a serving fork from crate & barrel! The meatballs were also all flipped around to the same way, and I fiddled with a lot of my linework, and finished the supporting animals.

So yeah. Progress continues. Normally you have the whole crest sort of resting on/in front of a bit of landscapey grass stuff. I would do a Seattle skyline, but that would be AWFULLY detailed. I'm thinking, maybe, like... Puget Sound, somehow?? We'll see.

I know nothing about iCarly that I didn't learn from your LJ, but that coat of arms is turning out awesome. :)

I'm terrified at the thought of what someone who has only learned of iCarly from my LJ must think of it. The horrors!

Anyway, thanks! I really respect your opinion on this sort of symbolic frippery.

It's coming along very awesomely! Love the texture, and the sign rocks. Teehee @ the porcupine to be purply. X3 XDDD I can't wait to see what the design under the critter will look like.

Wow, the textures really make it pop. And I love the heraldic animals - the old art style came across really well.

You had me at "purple porcupine"! That's so adorable.
