The Alternate Style #1 Remake is progressing along smoothly. With all my DS9-era ranks revised and remade, I started working on the backgrounds. A small sample was posted on the forum for those who have an account and would like to take a look.
I found something while doing a little more Claymore emblem research. I found a non-canon (doujinshi / fan comic) suggestion for Luciela's emblem and applied it to the set I made. So it ended up with 3 more ranks (1 for each color).
A hearty thank you to "Emperor" from Metroid Headquarters for your donation. For those who do not know, I spent a good couple weeks working on a set for their forum, creating a series of small, medium and large video game sprites to be used in their rank buttons.
