Recommendation of heraldic artists out there?

Post by Guye Pennington » Sat Jun 17, 2006 12:58 pm

Greetings, all, with a special welcome to George Lucki on this forum!
I am currently looking for a heraldic artist. While I realize that this is personal taste, I would strongly prefer someone with a solid grasp of digital heraldry as opposed to the hand-painted variety. That is, the person should be able to have the computer perform digital shading, bezeling, and the like. In fact, if I had to define a particular type of heraldic artist, I would say someone who can do digital work comparable to Natalie Yegorov at the CHR (I know Natalie paints first and only then works with the digital, but you get what I mean). I've actually approached Valery about Natalie's involvement, but the scope of my project is larger than Natalie is currently able to provide.
Can anyone recommend anyone? Preference would be given to someone in Eastern Europe that is both digitally savvy yet cost-effective. Many thanks!

Guy,

I don't think England's football team would agree. Three points is three points.

Guye,
Thanks for the welcome.

I would recommend Alexander Kurov a very talented Russian heraldist. He lives in Germany these days - and he is a master of digital art. His contact information and some examples of his work is on his Russian web-site http://www.excurs.ru/gerb/Your_arms.htm - the detail of his work is simply stunning.

George is absolutely right Alexander Kurov work is stunning. However I don't know if he would be able to handle the quantity of work you require he is a very busy heraldic artist but you can only do but try.

A second suggestion I might make is Nenad Jovanovich a young cleric from Serbia. See his web-site at www.czipm.org - you may let him know I had referred you. He does a fair bit of graphic work.

Hi George, I hadn't seen his website before, different style to Kurov's more simplistic designs but still very, very well done.
