Yeah, you are right about the Tigonus, I also didn't like the visibility. In the end, I've decided to change both the color of the sun and the background color to the brighter one. Here is the result:

Also changed clan Thrafey, now it looks better I think:

Also my suggestion for you, is to maybe try to use different shield shapes (escutcheon), to give them more personality. ;)
I was thinking about it, but for now decided against it. These are mostly placeholders and the actual insignia should look good on everything - banners, shields, flags, etc.

Maybe I will use different shapes to distinguish between different types of icons, though. For example, I could use round shields for Hammerfell regions. But I am not sure at the moment.

Thought about adding some signs for the Witch Covens. It's actually quite a bit harder to conceptualize 14 unique Witch Covens, than just 9 Vampire clans, but here are the signs. Once again, tried to make Hammerfell stand out a bit. What do you think?

All these are very, very interesting and good. I personaly only have just some minor comments.

The Tamarilin -too complex (but its really nice tho)

The Dust witches -too comical

The Mountain witches -too complex (idea is good)

The Tide, Devilrock and Marsh witches -are awesome and I like them a lot. Dont know where you found those, but they are just really good. My personal artistic philosophy is based around simplicity, or -the less is more ;)

The "Sisters of *Kylos" also looks too complex.

* Did I spell that right? Probably not...
Previous experience tells me it's very easy to misunderstand the tone, intent, or meaning of what I've posted. If you have questions, ask.

Yeah, it's Kykos :D But Petrock is very stylish and the image is rather small, so I don't blame you.

Thanks for the critique, to both of you. I will try to fix them, I mostly agree. For me, witches were more of an afterthought, it's not even Heraldry, strictly speaking. But I think I got some ideas for them.
