SCA Kingdom Device Artwork
Artwork of the SCA Kingdom Devices in vector formats for printing & web.
Back in July of 2004 a friend of mine, one of the loveliest ladies in the SCA Lady Duva of Trimaris, was in need of help with the Pennsic Gift Baskets from the Kingdom of Trimaris to the other Kingdoms many good gentles made great efforts to create gifts for the other Kingdom Crowns and they wanted to place these gifts in a canvas bag with the kingdom device on each bag. Graphics being my profession I knew I could create what they needed fairly quickly and happened to have a bunch of ink jet iron on sheets from another project. All were created with Adobe Illustrator 10 and InkScape for some of the tracing.
I have made available for download an original Adobe Illustrator Native (.ai) file an Encapsulated Postscript (.eps) file with a windows preview and a Scalable Vector Graphic (.svg) file, an open format with several free open source applications available. I searched for references and drew the vectors mostly by hand occasionally I used inkscape to assist with tracing but I rarely like what tracing does and invariably modify it but it does help when you have a deadline. The actual art I used for my reference I could not say who did it but I did locate one kingdom device already vectorized. For the east kingdom vector artwork I had previously posted a link to the graphics on their web site but they have changed the site and it is no longer available while i have the art i will not post it here without the artists permission. At some later date in keeping with my Icon Project elsewhere on this site i will create icons for all of these. You will find some of the Kingdom Icons completed.
