Nation and State Heraldry (Arganorh) by Levodoom Nation and State Heraldry (Arganorh) by Levodoom
These are temporary crests for the nations and independent states in Arganorh. The reason I say temporary is because quite a few of these shields use stock images I've had lying around on my computer for a while, some of which are slightly modified, and I can't be entirely sure whether a few of them were actually free to use. Thus I can't take full credit for these, and I will eventually change these for something more self-made. This is all not to say that I didn't make some of these shields, just that a few of them use designs that aren't entirely my own. I just needed to put something together to illustrate the general heraldic ideas for my nations.

If you're interested in learning more about these nations, you can read more about some of them (I have only finished the nation pages for Redwain, Thalon, The Imperium, Valaís and Varanos) here: www.originworlds.com/thirderaa…

I love your work *-* it is absolutely beautiful...
Would you mind if I took some of the symbols and paint them on wooden shields? (I make them sometimes for fun and LARP-ing)
Will give credit to you though :DD

Hi again. I was wondering, did you design these yourself? Because I'm trying to make my own fantasy world and story, and I'd like to know if there was anything specific that you did?

A few of them I drew myself. However, there are also a few of them that use vector art/stock that I've collected over the years. I can't say with complete confidence that they were free to use, hence why I can't take full credit. But the general design and composition I decided on myself. Other than that I just put the various icons, animals etc. together, played around with colours, and experimented with the layer options until I got what I was looking for. I used Photoshop making these.

Other than making shields that made sense to the nation they belong to (ie. their culture, history etc.), I don't know what else I could be specific about.

Very cleanly drawn and colored, and also very imaginitive, makes me want to imagine such a world.
For some reason Rivaire looks like the place I'd want to live. There's no description of it yet on your site, so what's it like if I may ask? :)

Thanks! Rivaire is a vassal state situated on an island between the two central continents. It was founded by Valaísians and is currently part of the Valaísian Empire. I'd describe it as an idyllic and peaceful place inhabited mainly by traders, fishermen and shipbuilders. The island is mostly forested save for the areas around the capital of Rivaire City. While generally a tranquil place to live, recent events would probably not make Rivaire such a great place to live. Recent increases in taxes set the Rivairans in a rebellious mood, which led to the people destroying valuable trade goods in protest, which severely hurt the Valaísian Empire's economical strength. Valaísian troops now more actively occupy and patrol the island, and violently suppress the people to prevent open rebellion against the Valaísian crown.

Thromnash's crest is reminiscent of the Horde Pandaren crest for WoW. By no means exact, mind, but that's what it immediately reminded me of. [link]

I haven't played WoW since WotLK, so I wasn't aware. But in general I guess the Thrumnash symbol is somewhat similar to the common Horde crest. Unintentional, of course, but I suppose it's possible I got some inspiration from the Horde crest.

It's not a problem, not by any means. xD I just noticed it and thought I would comment, since that's what it immediately reminded me of. It's dissimilar enough that nobody would mistake the two.
