Risan Bracelet Design

This is a preliminary design of the "entwined, opposed serpents" that appears in my upcoming novel, Fallen Rise. The symbol is used in several places, such as the design of a pledge bracelet, the cross-guard of a sword, and a banner. It figured heavily enough that I wanted to see it visually, so I built it using a CAD program called Campaign Cartographer 2, followed by a pass in Photoshop. The snake heads are stylized and do not represent a specific serpent,though they are closer in design to the heads of venomous vipers. I'm also considering making a more iconographic version for a chapter header flourish.
