Gentlemen, least it needs to be mentioned: when using either of the two masters artisan KimWerner or WhyMe's artwork, please give them due courtesy by crediting them, and you may use the following phrase that I'm using: CoA courtesy of______________(whichever of the two you prefer to use!)
Yes, well. On the positive side these ships crests/badges are works of art, and deserving of the highest praise. But.... It is simply that they are not essential to the ships drawing; and, no offence shipmates, but some of them IMHO are just too large for the template of the ships they represent, so that the badge dominates the drawing. I have used the excellent badge templates, and thank you again gentlemen, but only the larger one on a bigger drawing where it doesn't dominate, otherwise I will use the smaller where appropriate. As to crediting; yes, if we are using the badge template it is a part, otherwise, with the badge artist where the finished product is used; you really need to add the badge artists name after your own on the credit, and not some extra dedication, as suggested above.
