New Arms

Recent line drawing (pencil) for a commission of arms.  
Copyright 2014, Chad Krouse.

I just finished a line drawing for a new commission of arms which I think turned out beautifully. There is a lot of significance in these arms to the new armiger and even contains a pun on his middle name (Andrew).  The anchor cross has been traditionally appropriated for Saint Andrew, seen more so in the Anglican tradition.  The crest is a Golden Retriever bearing a shotgun, something very personal for the armiger.  

Arms:  Per chevron gules and barry wavy argent and azure, in chief a demi sun in splendor or and in base an anchor of the fourth;

Crest:  On a wreath of argent and gules, a Golden Retriever passant gorged of a collar gules, in dexter paw a shotgun proper;

Motto:  "Fire When Ready."
