08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Hello folks!

I have been busy on the programming front so hardly finalized the artsy front but now have finally finished the Flash project I worked on. It is essentially a heradly generator which allows you to create your own Coat of Arms. I found some similar stuff on genealogy and heraldy pages but most of them were more about the formulas and rules defined by medieval heraldy while not looking to be create nice looking coat of arms.

This one is more of an art editor meant to allow anyone to shuffle together his own shield without being limited in his imagination or having to be capable to draw or paint anything.

You'll find it here:Fantasy shields

I'm currently still working on the presentation of The lists and will add more content to the selection panel but overall a sortiment of basic shapes and most common beasts is already available. I'll see to it to get more ready. Some performance tweaking might be in order as well as currently there're no progress bars telling you how much it needs to load and how much it has done already. I will come back to this latter!

For suggestions and ideas feel free to comment here!

Fantasy shields are great ;) as for suggestions maybe it is possible to add different shields and not only beast but things common in heraldry like trees, swords, arrows, leafs and horseshoes. [especially tree like oak and sword would be useful]
I'd suggest also banner for motto, but i think this would be too much to ask;]

thx for the inpur. I'm currently struggling to revamp it. The current generator is quite limited concerning extension of symbols etc. I hope to implement something more flexible, which possibly other people can upload to, too.

Hey man, I'm really enjoying your shield generator. Was wondering if you could possibly add a "Wolf Rampant" to the list of beasts? Thank you sir!

Hi! Currently still busy with some other issues. My main focus would be to add more beasts next. Wolf will make it on the lists, I guess. Didn't think of it.
