For BaconJam 2 I decided to take inspiration from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and create a stylized version of the Herald Shield. After feedback and a few iterations this was the finalized sculpt that I'm going forward into retopology and texturing with.
What is BaconJam you ask? It's a monthly contest hosted by Kevin Brunt aka SirDigitalBacon. This month the goal of BaconJam was to re-imagine an asset from one of five PS1 era games.
