===[COMMITTED]=== Roman Civ Emblem

Recommended Posts

The current Roman civ emblem doesn't work with the other civ emblems. Need something better. Maybe something like the RTW2 emblem. I took the RTW2 emblem and spiced it up in Photoshop as an example of what our could look like.

Also attached are a few other civ emblems for inspiration.

Don't erase the Aquila concept Rome without eagles is like Macedon without Sun Symbol.

If I have time to Design I draw something for illustrator and I'll put effects in Photoshop but, I'm very busy working in a ONG.

PD:I'm Romanophile.

Looking good so far. A few things: I think the eagle could be even bigger so that it's wing tips overlap the edge of the shield (we can make the shield slightly smaller to fit. Also, the outlines are very very dark.

Add some red please. Is cool the eagle cool Enrique.

And if you can do this, can do the Ptolemaic symbol. For me is very hard to do a realistic coin like a artistic eagle from Hellenistic era.

And the shape of head is more different in a eagle, one thing differences a eagle from other birds is the head. Is no to rounded. Is very hard drawing a eagle, and the head is not to curvy.

One other point for possible for improvement. The eagle looks a little too American to me. It would seem strange to some gamers to see the Romans represented similarly to the United States. That is not to say that the work isn't amazingly well done of course.

As the American eagle refers to the Roman one, this isn't too bad ;)

We should be more careful with emblem, especially those use by Creative Assembly.

I don't think it would be a problem if we're just using them as references and inspiration as long as we're not directly copying from them.

High Imperials: Yellow eagle, purple background (The color of the empire)

Late Imperials: White/Black constantine symbol, purple background (The color of the empire)

With the romans we should have an eye in part one and the other eye in part 2.
