    Clan Symbols

    I was bored tonight and browsing the LoK wiki when I decided to merge all of the clan symbols into one.
    Dumah's proved difficult to place but where it ended up, it reminds me of the Prophet's animal skull or Bane's headdress...Kinda looks like some sorta shaman.

    That combo clan symbol is really cool!
    Glad I'm not the only one who likes to tinker with the symbols.

    Well, now that's all I can see.

    Maybe I'll try something with the full clan symbols (diamond = clan, symbol = patriarch).

    In the meantime, I was messing with the forge symbols and noticed the Earth and Light symbols fit perfectly on top of each other so if I cut the lower half of the light symbol, it was sort of a ground/sky thing. So I took a shot at merging all the elements into a unified symbol. Ended up with this:


    Spirit's at the backdrop encompassing the rest. Light and Dark are a half-half split meeting above Earth. The side drafts and top flame off the Air and Fire symbols, respectively, branching out of the 'core' on the Earth symbol. And the Water symbol swirls within the center of Earth, mostly because I couldn't find any other aesthetically pleasant way to incorporate Water due to its asymmetry.

    I liked it...but i have a few constructive criticisms:

    1) I feel the spirit symbol could be bigger, meaning it you make the rest smaller and more in the center of the spirit ring.
    2) The proportions are a bit odd, the earth one isn't exactly in the center and the light one seems cut.

    Yeah, it was late when I was doing this so I didn't tweak it as meticulously as I should have done. I'm not satisfied with the spirit symbol for multiple reasons (it ended up being sort of an oval which is probably what throws the proportion off). And the light symbol was cut so it runs into the dark symbol but I probably should've cut it at a line or something so it didn't stop so abruptly. I'm gonna give another shot at this one.

    Water remains an annoyance. Obscures too much if placed among the others. That issue aside, I rather like the second attempt. But as far as visibility, third wins out.

    Second

    Thought of a way to deal with Water being so obscuring. Modeled this one after the Abyss, water with a vortex (fittingly enough leading to the spirit/spectral realm) in the center:
