I was working on making my own version of the Alpha Legion heraldry.

An doing the process I thought that maybe I could turn in to something like this.

I wonder if this is too close to the trademark

To be frank, it looks like a fidget spinner.

That because it is a fidget spinner rolleyesclean.gif

The heraldry i am working on is a little bit more complex.

I was working with a Triskelion as a base and just noticed that it would be fun to put on a fidget spinner

Looks good, though I never did get the charm about fidget spinners...I'm old...

The TL;DR is because people think medication is bad, they search for other ways for kids with ADD/ADHD to focus. Fidget Spinners and Fidget Cubes were one way they found helps.

 

Unfortunately, since they're classified as "toys" kids who didn't have ADD/ADHD started getting them and getting them banned in schools because the sounds are distracting.

I am looking for a bit of feedback on my heraldry project.

 

Spoiler

 

I am not sure that the hydra neck has enough length and curve.

And I still need to fix the symmetry, but it getting there.

Too skeletal for my taste.

I prefer the ones that are to be found on the top right of the alpha legion transfer sheet.

They are the ones that inspired me the most

Personally the only thing I can really say is that the "snake heads" doesn't feel attached to the circle imho. There's something with the "flow" of where it connects to the circle.

 

A bit vague I know...

The emblems look awesome howvever the "necks" are at an angle in relation to the circle. I think the whole picture would improve if you place the "necks" at a tangent to the circle. I think that would also solve lack of "flow" Excessus mentions.

 

Hope it helps

That's what I was thinking as well. In all the official emblems the necks are bend backwards.

Thank for all the great feedback.

I have made a new test file based on the feedback.

Spoiler

 

I think that this gives more of a flow to it and give the hydras some more focus

 

Edit: I have a finished version that I am happy with. Again thank for all the feedback. It helped
