Techno For tomcats by technofortomcats Techno For tomcats by technofortomcats
I kinda needed a little 'splash' image for my website (down for re design) and decided a really loose kind of coat of arms was in order.

I picked lions as the supporting beasts (facing outward, kind of a defiance of tradition in a way) The F-14's 'mascot' was a two tailed male cat, so I fiddled with some designs.

The shield design was a bit of a flub for me. Usually things don't pop out of the confines of the shield, but I kind of like the powerful effect having the wings and nosecone popping out.


On top of the knight, I picked a Fleur de lice (OR LIS OR LYS there's about seven different ways to say it) and wings to represent planes and other winged things I liked to draw. :)

Big thanks go to :iconjunryou-na-kokoro: for a helpful critique.

This design is for my use only, please respect my request for people not to use, edit or claim as their own.

It's "fleur de lys" or, less commonly "fleur de lis", to be exact. Sorry if I sound like a grammar nazi but French is my native language.
Nice design!

Uh it can be spelt with a lice too because hey I use English dialect more than French or anything. Lys or Lis is also correct as you mentioned. 
Please don't refer yourself as a nazi, grammar or otherwise. It's gross.

Wow, this is just awesome. Tomcats are such awesome aircraft, having one on a coat of arms definitely seems appropriate. :)

This is pretty awesome. I'm still having trouble with the traditional coat of arms style.

I'm not too good at designing Coat of Arms that are proper in the true sense of them, but it certainly is fun and great practice in pricing together different things.

You're better than me. And the whole flowing lines and anatomy are what really screw me up.

Nice design :) I'm finding the plane really, REALLY sticks out, I think because it's this BLATANTLY OBVIOUS MECHANICAL THING on top of a lot of stylised flowing lines. Pulls the eye to it. I like the outward facing lions. Considering the watermark/logo thingi you like to use, it fits in very well with your theme :)

I wanted it to really stick out and go hey the tomcat stands for planes (not male cats which happens a lot!)
