Heraldic Crest- Wolverine by tarkheki Heraldic Crest- Wolverine by tarkheki
Commission for client.
When doing different styles and contents, I breach FAR in order to think up of ways I can symbolize, or represent a character for a client- that also might be used in other mainframes and social media. After all, many of us are gamers, rpg and tabletop patrons, as well as hobbiest of all kinds. So I figured I'd try and design something for everyone that had the potential to be used as insignia, or crest. Needless to say, Twitch's warrior character [wolverine] immediately inspired [if not demanded] an approach that was heraldic... so there you have it!
The Wolverine is "Rampant" because well, that's what this fellow does! Since everything on a crest has to reflect the bearer, I included the 2 swords [warrior/battle] his double knotts [character insignia] and the wreath of Laurel [triumph; success, renown, glory and victory].

OHHHHHHHH my god, I love this so much. I love all the symbolism there, the colours as well, the crossed swords and the laurel and that wonderful 'come at me bro' pose of the Wolverine, which is perfect for Wolverine. That red and brown, with the pale (greenish?)yellow rim around that dark red behind the Wolverine, it's stunningly chosen. I've just been staring at this for ages, it's so so gorgeous. *screams happily*

Thank you! I love working on images like these- symbolism in every aspect is what I live for. Heraldry just gives me another opportunity to go deep and enjoy those meaning. :P

Wow, cool!
His pose reminds me the bohemian white lion.

The "Rampant" pose is quite common in Medieval Heraldry, as it suggest warfare- which is a commonality in most European Medieval Countries. :)

'Tis fitting for the mighty wolverine! The symbolism behind this big guy is also interesting to learn about; we know what kind of warrior we're looking at and what he represents. The laurel, in a way, also gives a nice and soft touch; the warrior believes in honor and achieving victory. That's what I get out of this anyway! :)

Crests really do take on a life of their own, and as you just expressed- an interpretation as well. Just like classic literature, certain aspects will speak to culture, era, and person POV... and that's what makes it so thrilling to work on. Everything a meaning and symbol, and together a general statement. :heart:
