Creation of your coat of arms

The creation of your coat of arms admits many possibilities, being the basic one the creation of the blazon, that is, its heraldic description. From there,

  • you can choose all the ornament of your shield, for example, whether or not it has a crest, whether or not it has a mantling, that your arms have supporters, or tenants, moreover
  • you can choose your own complements, for example, wish to have a flag according to your coat of arms, create your own badge, your personal seal, your ex libris, etc.

My heraldic art covers all of the above, from initial conception to final design, both in digital support and through a printed heraldic document which contains all the pieces created for you in a personalized way and even other tangible complements, such as, for framing or sealing.

Heraldic creation methodology

Artista03 22 SinoplePlataOroAzur jpg

While writing and illustrating «The book of the coat of arms of the Wolves Sable and the Unicorns Argent», I established the foundation for a work process that has now become my signature methodology in heraldic creation. Recognizing the importance of a methodological approach to consistently produce quality artwork, I continue to refine it with the experience I accumulate.

My methodology can be summarized as a 3-phase process, each containing 3 distinct activities, with the flexibility to revisit any phase for continual improvement.

The diligent execution of these nine activities ensures that the final product meets the expectations of the future bearer of the heraldic coat of arms.

The three phases are as follows:

  • Conception, which encompasses: elicitation and ideation, heraldic research and critique, creation of a preliminary coat of arms sketch.
  • Plastic execution, which includes: layout and tincture application, ornamentation and detailing, lighting effects and final artwork production.
  • Completion and fulfillment, which involves: heraldic editing, final review and artwork delivery, documentation and archival closure.
