Barking Up the Wrong Tree by Zeiram3f

First I would like to say that these beasts are very cool. The teeth encased in the armored skull is a cool concept as well. With that ...

Lion Crest by adammiconi
Lion Crest

Lion Crest Art Digital Painting


Like the giant door knockers that you would find on castle gates, this is an oversized, geometric lion head with two figures hanging off the sides clothed with a simple cloth. The sun dial-like relief behind the head swirls outward creating a nice geometric shape.

The Legend of the Lion Crest


For centuries the Lion Crest has been used to represent strength, dignity, and valor. The Lion Crest was originated approximately 9 centuries ago by Richard 1st who chose a shield of three lions to represent his crown, including three areas, England, Normandy, and Aquitaine. The original symbol immediately identified him in battle. The medieval look of the Lion Crest brings strength to the image, much like we saw from King Richard 1st.

As the symbol has evolved, it was Henry VII who used it to show authority over his subjects. The symbol was used to create a connection of the king to the church, and soon the lion began to appear as door knockers and throughout different buildings in Europe. It often adorned large castle gates, and was even found in several churches in Europe.

Scotland used the original inspiration of the lion and added it to a shield including multiple lions and mottos. One motto that has lasted throughout the years is ‘No one attacks me with impunity.’ Upon adding this motto to the crest, strength and courage began to be associated with the lion.

Creating the Lion Crest Art Digital Painting


When I sought out to create a unique lion crest, I focused my attention on something that I would love to see hanging on my own front door. When I see lion crest art, I often run into images that are generic or do not have a lot of attention to unique details that truly sets the lion apart from other symbols of strength. I drew upon the lion crest meaning while allowing my creativity to create this unique work of art. If you want the lion crest vector image, contact me for ordering and download information.

I am currently taking commissions.

If you are interested in having a commission done just shoot me a message with what you are looking for. You can also grab a thumbnail from my gallery to show me the level of detail you would like added into the piece.

From there, I will get an estimate put together for you and send it back. I give out free estimates. If you are happy with the price and what it entails then I will send you a contract for you to sign.

I take half down up front, the final payment due before final delivery. I use Paypal for Paypal and credit card payments. If check is sent, I will have to verify it before sending final files and that could take a bit of time.
