    Argent, a cannabis leaf vert

    A thread for celebrating the noble art of heraldry and discussing blazons (the formalized written description that defines a coat of arms)

    aka mostly shitpost heraldry, knowing this crowd.

    Wikipedia has extensive pages on heraldry (that i'm sure you can search easier than i can link) and a site called drawshield has a nice reference and a shield-from-blazon page to play around with.

    so you know all those image memes that have a cutout picture in the center and wedges of color radiating out?

    the way to make those wedges is to use "gyronny"

    for example, socially awkward penguin is approximately equivalent to "gyronny azure and celestial azure, a penguin passant"

    EDIT: Also "cabossed" is for "just the head facing towards the viewer", so insanity wolf would be "gyronny sable and argent, a wolf cabossed". (Or would it be salient cabossed?)

    [3:06:52 PM] Vacuum Energy: yep!
    [3:06:57 PM] Wiwaxia foliosa: although proper is a bit ??? when it comes to cuttlefish
    [3:07:18 PM] Vacuum Energy: Right, because proper mostly just refers to "natural color" andcuttlefish change color
