Wow! Those are imo one of the best looking shields ever, and I have seen a whole lot of shields...I haven't yet seen a shield I would switch mine for but that may be it. V-Moda has really improved their process since they started making custom shields. I think the detail level there is amazing...wow...
Yeah, I don't see why he was somewhat disappointed, they're some of the most unique shields I've seen. Perfectly sized too, not sure what significance the tree has to him but it's interesting, I could see someone stopping him to ask about it.
I just looked at them again on my desktop at full size and noticed the name under the tree, when I first read the post I thought he was talking about a different shield that wasn't pictured. It's a subtle detail, but a nice one.
Thanks. I’m really happy with them now, I’m glad you like them. Yeah the name is very easy to miss because it is so small, that’s the way I wanted it, so that it’s only if you look closely you can see that name.
It’s not that I was originally disappointed in them I think that it was more that they come out a bit smaller than I expected. I guess I didn’t know what to expect, I just send the design of and had my fingers crossed that it would come out alright. The level of detail at that size has come out great.
I’m not too sure why I chose a tree, it’s just something that I have always liked drawing and I though it would look good on a shield. I then decided to add the owl and a small apple hanging from it.
