[COMPLETED - ARMOR CONCEPT] Eleidons Ward by FDT 2

EDIT : Final design


 

Hey, after a long break due to final exam, I´m back with new stuff: Concept for Eleidons Ward!

I´ll have the honour to finish the great work of snapi (https://tesrenewal.com/forums/concept-art/armor-concept-elei...). Here are some first ideas, how I think about this shield:

My favourite is A, it´s mostly common, but for a breton knight I would think about a shape like that. There can be vein inspired patterns or some runes be added later. Another idea for A was this:

As in fact, Eleidons Ward is a sworn knights´shield, I can add bands with the restore health symbol or some prayers and knightly symbols...

 

What do you think?

Good designs, If I had to

Good designs, If I had to choose, I would take A or C, because they follow the original design, with curves and symmetric and of course with much more ornamentation. That's what I think :D

Really digging A too. Keeps just enough of the original design while giving it Morrowind-ish (but not Dunmeri) look and feel. And it looks practical to boot.

Well, after counting the votes from here and from discordapp.com, A definitely has won! I have a few ideas of decorating elements on A. Maybe a bit over the top, but decide at yourselves:

A has a bird made of metal scales - because I saw, that the restoration symbol in Oblivion&Skyrim is a phoenix, a breton knight would probably like a heroic bird more than just a rune ;) Watch over these variants and tell me, if there is a fav or if some parts of these elements can be selected or mixed together.

Very nice pattern on H, but I'm not so sure about the sun thingie in the middle, it looks kinda out of place.

G is beautiful, but way it's too Dunmeri

Eleidon was a Breton, and Bretons are half-elves, I like the shield E because it reminds me of the elven style

I like H the most, but perhaps it could in some way include the "restoration" school emblem the original had?

This looks awesome! I especially like the shell or leather-like texture on the shield, and how the bottom portion almost appears to be some kind of turquoise suede. Great work!

Go educate yourself    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-headed_eagle    

Two headed eagle is very nice detail and looks awesome on that shield  (imo), and saying it looks like flag of Albania is same like saying,... .well you clicked on that link and read everything right ? :)

Yeah, I choosed a bird, becuase it´s the symbol for restoration school in Oblivion and Skyrim. As Eleidons Ward is a shield, that gives magic healing power, I wanted to resemble it in the shields decoration. But it´s still all WIP, I´ll try this symbol, I like it too :D BTW:If someone here has another fitting symbol, I´ld be happy for a hint

This was mentioned in the other thread that got abandoned, but why not use some of the symbols from Morrowind's restoration school?

These to me look very reminiscent of the Daedric runes, so I'd risk a theory that they're Dunmer symbols.

Soo, it´s done!

In development we still left the eagle, many ppl liked it anyway. We have two shields of different materials and they are fixed together with a set-in grip. The letters and belts from previous owners are secured with nails on the shields´ surface, so they wont move (what would offer new modeling problems I assume).

My thoughts exactly. Anyway very nice shield, hopefully there will be some armor in game to match it.

Perhaps the notes could be placed inside the shield? That would make more sense for practicality and that's where they would be if they were intended to be read by the owner. Just my thoughts.

Yeah best place for the scribbles would really be the inner side, I would also maybe use more durable material something like guar or goat skin, not just easily torn stuff like paper

Unfortunately, good ideas
Unfortunately, good ideas sometimes happen too late. Maybe we'll add a few sheets on the inner side, but the front of the shield will stay the same. For the first release, there will not be any Breton armour. Eleidon's ward is an artifact, so it's not supposed to have a matching set. Do not lose hopes, though. Miracles happen.
