haha nope. don't know anything about drawing hobbits.

sounds good. if there's any other changes you can think of to add to this, tell me and i'll have a go at it.

Well, I'm back now (for at least a little bit  buck). I was picked up for a job back in September a job and was on set 10-14 hours per day for the past 3 months... haha it's good to be rested again.

Here is an update to the crest. I've done it as a necklace. I will see what I can do to have it as a brooch for a cloak, or something along those lines.

coming up as soon as i can. recently got super busy and also got a new computer :) so i've been transferring everything over. i will get the new design out with a necklace or a cloak, maybe both to see which one is better.

More of a crest, to be worn on clothing, can be placed onto doors, hang from necklaces, etc.

Thoughts? (Note: there are still a number of things to be done with this, it's just the idea i'm asking. i still have to change the middle pieces and the texture of everything to look not so weird)
6  Santharian World Development / Races, Tribes and Clans / Re: The Helmondsshire Halflings Coat of Arms on: 13 August 2010, 03:32:17
I completely agree. A crest or a flag maybe?
7  Santharian World Development / Races, Tribes and Clans / Re: The Helmondsshire Halflings Coat of Arms on: 13 August 2010, 02:03:21
That sounds great! I would definitely be interested in seeing this generator of Koldar's. As well, do you know which program he used/uses for his "3d-ification" of designs?

Thanks for the Aura Azhira :)

Pipeweed, it seems, is more deeply rooted in Gnomish culture than Halflings. Reading up in the compendium it doesn't mention halflings within the entry, nor pipeweed within the halflings entries (even though most of us know in Tolkien's world that the hobbits loved it). Does anyone have any opinions or knowledge of this topic? (Is Rayne still around these parts?)

Yes, as Valan said, the coat of arms will just be the circle. The background will be transparent and the finished work will be 3d. This is just the 2d design.

Thanks for the input guys :), but don't be afraid to criticize. If there is anything I could possibly change or do to make it better, please say.

Greetings from China. Decided to stop by the website for a quick look around, ended up spending some more time making this. Thoughts so far? (to be completed in 3d later)

The Helmondsshire Hobbits have one of the oldest symbols, dating back to the Age of Myths. The shield is round, reflecting peace, and inside is a single vine with gentle green leaves. This coat of arms is centered on their love of gardening and the earth. They are, of course, “Green-People”.

The coat of arms was re-done after the destruction of the shire after the War for Ancyros, but retains the circular shape, but instead of a vine, the symbol of two green leaves. Almost all of the other hobbit coat of arms use the leaves in their symbol.

Maybe they were descended from a certain geographic area where through evolution they required to adapt to cetain poisons. Therefore, they tend to be more immune to such poisons or more attuned to them?

This version has a much more relaxed feeling to it.... very peaceful. I like that. I think the feeling is very naturish in this version and it suits the character very well.

As Art had mentioned, maybe some bush or shrubbery on the left side can attest to more of the power being invoked by her. You don't get as much of a  feeling of wind power as in the 2nd and 3rd versions.

With the water, if I am seeing it correctly, I notice that there is a further waterfall on the lower portion of the piece. It was somewhat difficult for me to initially make it out and I had originally assumed it was a weird reflection off of the sky. Maybe more accent on the dropoff point would make it more prominent as I think it is a great concept to have in the background.

Beatiful painting. I think it's great grin.

Two things I briefly caught grammatically:

...ventured into the Celeste Mountains and stole an object of great value to a Fire Dragon.
This sounds a little odd to me. Maybe "...stole an object that was of great value to a Fire Dragon."

When the plant dies, which is usually one or two weeks after reaching full maturity which takes only a day or two, the petals, which are exceptionally light, break away from the stem and are carried away on the wind.
Redundancy issues and possible run-on.
"Upon the death of the plant after one to two weeks from full maturity (which itself only takes 1 or 2 days), its exceptionally light petals break away from the stem and are carried away on the wind."
I think my correction here may need some grammatical help as well. But it still should provide you with some help.

I'll take a look more closely at the content a little later.

Or is it meant to be a paper that everyone gets in his/her place of birth?
You made a good point with the crests on how not all families would have them. That is correct.

Maybe it could be signed by the birthparent/s and sealed with the birthtown's political symbol (or even just the coat of arms of the highest noble [as a witness] of the area if no symbol is available?).

@xera: I like that idea of levels of security from forgery based on status.

The new header is much better, indeed and the Help I'm a Newbie! section is a great addition.
