do the next thing

OTC-tasha, originally uploaded by Tashabear.

I wasn't happy with the OTC badge available on the EK website, so I found a tyger rampant on the internet, brought it into Photoshop Elements, adjusted the position of his head, upper body and tail, printed it, redrew the gaps, traced it, scanned it, cleaned it up electronically, brought into the roundel divided per pale that I'd already made, tweaked the width and height a bit, copied the layer, flipped it, and positioned it on the other side of the line of division.

I'm actually pretty proud of it. :-) (I may end up able to draw someday after all.)

Heheh I would not be surprised. You should be proud of it, it's quite nice.

I love the floofy heraldic animals--I have a floofy one on my heraldry.

Very nice! So, are there any rules on embellishing or modifying the order medallion designs? If I wanted to make award medallion tokens or something, could I use a slightly different design like you have done instead of the one on the website? I am thinking of trying something for order medallions to sell at Birka and I am now wondering if embellishing is permitted at all.

Of course you can. It's not embellishing or modifying; it's a different rendering of the blazon. As long as what you present is consistent with the blazon, you should be fine. (For instance, I'm pretty sure that whoever drew the sagittary for the Order of Sagittarius has never seen a horse. Or a man, for that matter. It's horrid. I'm redrawing that, too.)

Awesome! Thanks! :)

I agree about the Sagittarius. It's very stylized; I've been working up medallions as pins, for sale at future SCA events.

And I like your OTC much better than the one presented on the EK server; in no way does yours have weather lobster claws. ;)

I'm redrawing [the Sag] too.

YAY! I can't wait to see it.
And make something to wear with it. :)
