Heraldic Josephine Regardant by khyterra Heraldic Josephine Regardant by khyterra
ANOTHER HERALDIC SHIELD THING
Except this time I fell so much in love with the graphic quality of the flats that I just couldn't bring myself to shade it.

This is my :iconmoontouched: character, Josephine, for those of you who weren't aware.

Blazon: Party per pale Sable and Argent, a bend Azure and Josephine proper rampant regardant.

Josephine's shield actually has a lot of symbolism in it, as is explained here:

" so the black represents Constancy and Grief, which she's super [angry] and upset and scared about being a werewolf

the white/silver represents peace and such, which is what she was and would like to be again-- and which is why she's not very aggressive as a werewolf even when she flips out

the blue represents truth and loyalty, which is the path from black to silver, and her pose is aggressive to the black while looking toward the silver "

BEHOLD, SYMBOLISM
