It's a Dragon! RAWR!

Martian Design - Tuesday, February 19, 2013


I love medieval stuff.  I'm not afraid to say it.  I have book cases full of fantasy stories and I'm addicted to Game of Thrones.  I even have a sword designed in collaboration with the author G.R.R. Martin hanging in the office!  (Technically it belongs to my wife but let's no quibble over that!)


So when the chance came up to do some work the "The Northern Horde", Tauranga's medieval re-enactors society, I jumped at it.

I'm currently developing a WordPress website for the Horde, but step one was building their heraldic dragon emblem in vector format so it could be used on the web and in print.  They had a very basic version embroidered on some of their outfits, so a quick snap with the iPhone and a few hours of doodling and voila!  A brand new dragon artwork ready for commercial production!
