The harp was blazoned on the LoI as having its forepillar in the shape of a harpy. Following the pattern of period heralds, as seen in the blazon of the arms of Ireland and others, we will not blazon details of the forepillars of harps, as they are considered artistic details. [Christina Butterman, March 2009, Æthelmearc-A]While the shape of the forepillar is not worth any difference it is a big enough artistic detail that it can be blazoned to allow the re-creation of the emblazon.
We hereby rule that that there is no proper tincture for eyes. We will no longer worry about tiny details such as the eyelashes (if present) or the pupil: those are considered unblazoned artistic details. The tinctures of the sclera (the "white" of the eye) and the iris may be specified in blazon; contrast against the field will be judged by the sclera's tincture. [Nov 2007 LoAR Cover Letter]Thus, in this submission the eye tincture is vert, similarly to Cassandra's and there is no DC for the eye tincture. There is a DC for changing the field but, as depicted, the purpure iris in Óttar's eye depiction covers about one third of the length of the eye which means that it couldn't be in the center of the field, where part of the charge would have no contrast. Thus the position is forced and we cannot grant a DC for the move from center to dexter.
