A New Coat of Arms Thread

View attachment 640000
A simple coat of arms for the Emirate of Socotra, featuring the iconic dragontree. The orange background being reference to CK2 Socotran CoA

Cool idea and a pretty cool design !

I would have smoothed out the edges a bit, though. It's possible if you use a paintbrush tool in Paint or GIMP or other software, rather than a pencil. The pencil tool creates a hard edge, the paintbrush creates an edge you can smooth out into a neat transition, though it takes some degree of care.

I ll take a look at it, haven't really been using the paintbrush before, as I have mostly been doing easily-colourable maps. So yeah, will definitely try to smooth it out

Practice makes perfect. It took me a few years to get skilled at this, but I eventually got the hang of it. :)

Arms of the Kingdom of Lusitania, established after the collapse of the Roman Empire in 752 A.D.

I think this goes here, but this is the Seal of the State of Santo Domingo, the 39th state in the Union. Kind of cheating though, since I just used elements of the IRL Dominican Republic seal (sort of how like when Texas was admitted, they just slapped "STATE OF TEXAS" onto their existing seal).
 
After fumbling with softwares and everything I could find to create a coat of arms, here's the emblem of the Third House of Penthièvre, the ruling family of the Kingdom of Brittany in my TL A Kingdom Reborn.

Oh? My mistake then. Actually I didn't know heraldic panther until I accidentally found one and decided to use it for my own coat of arms. But Guatemalan Nat-Synd's really looked like a dragon to me.

Oh wait, I got confused a little. For some reason I thought you were responding to your own coat of arms which I thoughts someone else had posted.
Dunno why.
