Lineage

This is a game ready 3d model of an old book bearing the actual coat of arms of my family. The crest design is historically accurate except for the helmet which is my own design. I started this project in honor of the memory of my father who passed away a couple of years ago. I feel like I owe him a lot in becoming an artist, as he was a skilled oil painter. He saved a scan of this coat of arms from an old book detailing the history of our family. I didn't have to access to the book itself but thanks to the scan he saved I was able to reference the design of the crest. I even managed to find photos of the original book online at some website containing background info on dutch family trees. I worked on this off and on for a long time and it was quite a lot of work but I'm happy to be finally able to share it. Hope you like it!
