OK, I totally chickened out of tonights drawing event until about 30 minutes ago. After looking through everyone elses posts and looking at the reference pictues yet again I decided to draw the colourful knight's shield. I've always liked heraldic symbolism and I thought the symetry of the design would be neat to draw. Well I found out that trying to drawing symetrical designs is harder than I thought, and that the shield is nnot perfectly symetrical.

Coloured pencil on scratch paper.

Hi Kit! It looks symmetrical to me! I like how you picked that out, and just did that. I always see that kind of choice AFTER I do mine! :p I have no foresight. Nice job, and I'm glad that you decided to participate.

Hey, glad you joined in. I don't think you were chickening out, trying to draw something symmetrical can prove to be as hard as drawing anything else. You can gauge how symmetrical is it by how much hair you ripped out trying to draw it :D
Nice job!

Nice work, Kitaye. Like the others have said, it's not that easy, but you've done well with this shield.

Sometimes we see just a part of something when we look at it, and drawing that instead of the whole can mean all the difference in the world. Good idea here, and the execution's not half bad either. ;)

Kitaye - there is no such thing as a perfect symetry in the real world - so don't bother the slight inaccuracy - it makes the shield mor "belivable".
