The totally not ripped-off evil faction logo.

Wait, is that a nod to another game?

Nice work, everybody! I like those more than the ones I've been coming up with.

Did somebody say hideous monster? : http://bit.ly/1heesAx

Three-headed Monkey: http://bit.ly/1k3wAMi

More hair and beard: http://bit.ly/1lRtdVz

Nightmare before Christmas: http://bit.ly/1kgD4D6

Gyronny (It's a heraldic term, look it up): http://bit.ly/1jtYQmA

I need to work on a more serious look and feel, instead of trying to create stuff like Batman. You guys are great inspirations!

A half circle shape would be really nice for some designs, I know you can make your own with a circle and another shape, but that takes up 2/5ths of your slots.

I was try to mimic this logo, with mixed results.

Ack! Bloodline codes going out soon! I'm not ready yet! I'm currently going through my "discovering what the check pattern is capable of doing" phase. (Kind of like Picasso's Blue Period, but not.) Also, here's a moose.

@PcZac, another possible option for your logo (It's not perfect, but maybe worth playing around with): http://bit.ly/1nLaQGa

Okay, enough of this nonsense. I have much more important nonsense to attend to.

Had my first stab at the editor today. Took a few attempts, but I'm pretty happy with my spider banner!

Or...a giant octopus monster - depending how your eye sees it :D

Messing around with the editor has made me realize how uncreative I really am, lol. I seriously want to just have a simple rhino head and nothing else.

Gah, I don't know how to show my sigil without all this in it.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I clicked the save button and it just kinda resets my banner.

Anyone else having this issue. I'm on chrome so if that is the issue I guess I could switch over to another web browser.

Has anyone figured out how to make a boar head yet? I was hoping to make one close to my family's coat of arms, but I am not very artistic! :P

I may have been listening to a certain album when I made this

The sigil could probably be improved.

It took a couple of tries to get the bitly link to work correctly.

I can't decide between these two images:

oEIFuoI.jpg

8O9UssA.jpg

I'd appreciate any feedback. (I especially want to know if people can "get" what animal I was trying to portray in the center).

And, just for fun:

i2htUSH.jpg

Not using it because of the obvious copyright issues. (But a battle cry of "Cowabunga!" would be hilarious...)

Edit: is anyone else having problems with the share URL? My personal link is fine, but the bitly link (http://bit.ly/1ofsbpa) is always gibberish.

Best I could do in 5 mins of playing around. I'm also not artistic

I sometimes see a boar or a horse with a moustache. YMMV.

Also sometimes you have to remake the bitly link a couple of times before you stop getting gibberish.

I must say that editor isn't what most of us expected, but there are ways, how to make some decent creation. Animals are quite hard to make and it doesn't look that good, also medieval europian heraldry was totally ignored.

The only thing that seems to be feasible is doing various patterns or mutants made of those basic symbols. Quite sad that patterns suffer due to lack of symmetry and inability to set XY coordinates as needed. Anyway, here are some examples:

Dude I really like your designs! The pattern stuff that you have going on is really original! :D!

We tried to create our own set of symbols to get away from a traditional medieval "earth" feeling. I hope that people can understand that we want the sigils to be part of our own unique fantasy world.

You can type XY coords into the editor at the bottom right!

Also, some sigils that brad might appreciate:

Set Symbols in Massive Chalice

Zendikar was the only full block I was able to make. There's probably more that are doable (Starter 99 comes to mind, now that I think about it). I'd be very happy if someone more competent did some of the harder ones.

I concur with Brad, no one has really posted some of the pattern stuff you have, and it is pretty nifty. It is a nice departure from the more solidness of designs we've seen so far.

Okay, I finally finished it. It took a while of fooling around with objects to get a good idea down. I surprised myself with something that's pretty damn spooky. Maybe I should have gone with more brown and dark yellow colors, like an autumn.

I think everyone else's are really cool. I had such a hard time with the editor because I'm spoiled with Photoshop and Illustrator.

Right, and hopefully you can understand why those of us that paid for the bloodline backer level to "immortalize" our family line in a game by double fine would actually want the option to put in our actual coat of arms or something vaguely resembling it. It's disappointing but I do understand where you're coming from, I just wish there was a way your team could have included this option by designing the traditional animal profiles in a way that looks like the other game designs I'm already seeing. Even the main image chosen for the kickstarter of the game is two guy's profiles facing eachother.

It's not easy for someone to afford the kind of stuff you require, especially in a kickstarter. Perhaps the Kickstarter's vague description of the sigils is partly responsible for this?

Unfortunately, not many people in America typically have or have a copy of their coat-of-arms. I don't understand why people would give up their history like that. Perhaps its part of the Americanization of immigrants (see: The Joy Luck Club, for example). But because of this, there is very limited demand for the type of iconography you're asking for.

I know it's upsetting to you, but the fact that you have a history of lineage and a coat-of-arms puts you a great deal ahead of most people, in terms of your personal identity.
