How about giving the hammer some angle? So that it looks as if someone is hammering at the anvil?

Oh, and as for shield textures: I've been in contact for a while with Jonny Questino (no Santharian name as of yet), who can do very nice such textures I guess, which you would need, Koldar (and we really should have more CoAs...). He also does comic style figures etc., but they don't fit very well to the rest of the site design, however, I guess he could be very helpful in Coat of Arms design, so that's what I proposed to him and he agree to help us here. Still have to talk with him about further pics. Here's an example of his work so that you see what I mean:

Actually, I did a test also with a slanted hammer, didn't like it very much. I'll post it tomorrow anyway, so you can judge.

Great stylized drawing, I also think it's a perfect style for CoAs.

A young apprentice? Come and I'll show him the real force...! :evil

Well, looks really great, did you gave him something to do already? Otherwise he better show up soon if he wants! ;)
Only thing maybe not so good for 3D implementation is the gradient because it fakes light effects, could be disturbing but also not much, I guess. :)
Like him already! :D  (Koldar actually likes everyone who might take some work off his shoulders) :lol

I like the right last version best. The angle addition definitely shows the power now in the hammer methinks.

Yes, the right hand would be my choice too (not that I'm sucking up or anything :)   ).

Ok, if there are no more opinions, 4th version wins, two votes against one, sorry Koldar ;)

I'll send you a big version soon.

It is driving me crazy.  I CAN NOT SEE THE COA!!!  I would have to say it is only so so.  This is only because all I see is a broken link to what these COA should be.  Maybe it is just me but a square with a torn edge just doesn't get me all excited for a COA. :) :p

Lol, just to clarify it, my name isn't Jonny Questino, it's Kyle Shapiro.

No problem, Quellion, it's his dwarves who have to live with it! ;)

Now I see it.  I like it.  I could really look good as faded sailcloth on a dwarven ship, not to mention what Koldar can do as a shield.  Thanks for letting me see it finally.

Hello Finnael:D  Now we have a third name for you;)

About why the Coat of Arms couldn't be viewed: If you upload something, Quellion and others, make sure to not use and spaces in the file names (use _ instead), if possible you should also use lowercase letters only. Sometimes these things cannot be interpreted, God or Micorsoft know why:
