Arms of Angus Dunnet

Postby Mark Henderson » 23 Nov 2021, 03:07

It's always nice to revisit a coat of arms that I assisted in designing. I completed this with Affinity Designer in vector format. I am new to using vectors, but I am getting the hang of it I think.

Arms: Per saltire Azure and Or a cross each end terminating in a trident counter changed.
Crest: Issuant out of waves of the sea Argent upon a rock Or covered by a fishing net Sable a raven Sable.
Motto: Watch the Horizon

Very well done. It doesn't look like you are a beginner. The short mantle goes well with the helm, and I like how the banner motto curls around the raven's head. The words on the banner aren't perfectly aligned with the banner. That is something that I have trouble with too. The wave-rock-net combination is not exactly clear what it is. That is probably the biggest artistic challenge of the arms.

I have a question about the blazon: shouldn't the raven have his attitude blazoned?
