    Just out of interest sysman, do you use a tablet or is it all mouse driven with vector adjustments? I'd love to start getting into more graphics work as I think it is one of my weaker areas. If you have a sec to very roughly go over the process that would be fab too.

    The above work isn't a vector unfortunately just a high res image created in Photoshop.

    The process if the image above was to find suitable vector images that matched as closely as possible the original that I could use for the different parts of the image. For example the crown, scepter, flowers, helmet.

    Layered these images together in Photoshop and tweaked, cut as neeed and then applied the colour.

    Then created the graphics for the shield, again using Photoshop.

    Added the text to the banner image. The result is the colour version.

    For the outlined version just flattened the image in Photoshop and the removed and blocks of colour no longer needed.

    See not that complicated, but thanks for all the positive comments guys.

    If anyone else needs anything similar just me a line.

    So it is more a composition work & colouring than a full redrawing? Not wanting to make it sound trivial but that is definitely more managable!

    Yes. The original image was so badly pixelated it was hard to retrace, well for me anyways.

    Yes alot more managable, but still takes some time.

    Just for reference ... and sorry to be a pedant (and glad to seen the final, fantastic coat of arms) but option 3 would not be possible on any coat of arms. The charge (the keys in this case) lays on top of the field (the background of the shield) and then other devices (helmets, coronets, etc) sit on top ... either overlapping or being overlapped by the shield. Pretty much as you said really though.

    @FM-GM : Out of interest, did the local council not have a copy of this for you? They should have had a copy of anything that is officially granted as linked to their coat of arms.

    Last year another member of staff looked for a better quality one. The only one they had was the same as ours. Also went to the libraries and a few other places.

    Apparently the crest was actually made by a student yonks ago. When you look at the original image a posted you can see on the gold/yellow area it looks like glitter.
