Abreu Family Crest

Background

My family has three different backgrounds, pretty typical from Portugal: one from the north, with roots on the little villages and agriculture; another more urban, from the big city of Oporto; and the last one from the shore (city of Matosinhos), deeply connected with the sea and the fishing industry.

I also have two different family names, Joaquim and Abreu, since my mother did not take on my father's family name. 

With that said, I choose to pay tribute to the third background (Matosinhos, fishing) since it's from my mother's side and use my father's family name (Abreu, which is my own as well).

Inspiration

Matosinhos, then & now:

City coat of arms & logo:

Abreu's family crests (not sure if I'm connected with it tho):

Work

Progress made so far, been short on time this last days sadly.
Still re-thinking the whole shape thing.

Critique appreciated!
