Family Crest by Athey Family Crest by Athey
Been watching too much 'Who Do You Think You Are' lately (Genealogy series).  Which set me to go digging through family genealogy.  Athey, is, in fact, my real name.  I was named after my Grandmother's Maiden name - Lillian Lola Athey.  My 10th Generation great-grandfather was Francis Athy, of the Galway Athy tribe (Ireland).  His son was Captain George Athy who immigrated to America.  Sooooo, I ended up making a 'fancier' version of the family crest, just cuz I'm silly like that (Putting together a bit of a family book - wanted something pretty.)

An older version of the crest can be found here - www.galway-ireland.ie/athy.htm

Reference for the image is taken from a half dozen different heraldry images, then I did vectors for the whole thing (Every damn one of those little 'shading' lines - lol) to get everything consistent.  Still tempted to do a texture overlay on the whole thing - not sure if I will or not.  If I do and I like it, I may update the image here.


Arms: Checky, argent and gules, on a chevron of the last, three golden etoiles.

Crest: A demi lion rampant.

Motto: Ductus non coactus.  (To Be Led But Not Dragged)

That looks cool! :D

And would probably look awesome rendered with CrazyBump :)
Without the white though, since white would be the highest points.
