Freebie: I’m releasing a new vector freebie entitled Heart of the Unicorn. This heraldry design finds its inspiration in the recently passed Valentine’s Day, and is freely available for use in both personal and commercial designs. I hope you enjoy it!
Today I am bringing you another awesome freebie. I haven’t given away a vector freebie in a while, so I figure it’s about time to release another one for you all. Wouldn’t you agree?
The vector that I am releasing today is actually something that I designed for a tutorial that I recently had published over on SpyreStudios. It is a glossy heraldry vector with a Valentine’s Day theme. Yes, I know I’m a few days late, but I prefer to think of it as being a few months early. Besides, the tutorial itself was actually released on Valentine’s Day, and I wanted it to hit the “airwaves” before I released this freebie!
Anyhow, you can just click on the preview below to download the vector.
Obviously, this vector was inspired by my love of heraldry design, but with a bit of a twist. Instead of using the classical shield as the center point of the image, I elected to go with a heart instead. Then, because the heart kind of lead into a romantic theme, I decided to add in a couple of unicorns too, since the unicorn is often associated with young maids and such.
You are free to use this vector in your own designs – commercial or otherwise. All I ever ask is for you to send me a quick note letting me know how and where you used it. A sample of your design or a link back here would be greatly appreciated, too!
Oh, and both the wings and the unicorns were also hand drawn and then vectorized in Illustrator, so this is definitely a hand crafted vector. Also, all of the elements – heart, wings, unicorns, banner and star-burst or broken out onto separate layers. Feel free to extract any of them and is it on its own.
If you enjoy this vector, please let me know by dropping a comment or promoting this post on your favorite social media site! Keep an eye out for more awesome freebies coming your way in the future!Post A Comment
