    Request an image

    If you would like an image, post here, someone may do it for you!

    If you are requesting an image, say a flag or a signature banner, there is a certain minimum amount of information which is useful to put into your request. Please feel free to copy and paste the template below into your post adapting it to your needs: i.e. adding extra requirements or suggestions if you deem them necessary.

    An enthusiast may respond and take on your request. If not, please be patient nonetheless. People may also decide to decline your request due to technical difficulty or real-life priorities. Remember, the people providing the imagery do so on a voluntary basis.

    1. What kind of image would you like:
    2. Image size (in pixels, width x height):
    3. Detailed description:
    4. Elements/images the maker should incorporate:
    5. Elements the maker should avoid:
    For clarification:
    1. A flag; a coat of arms; a national seal or emblem; a signature image; a basic map; a resized picture.
    2. For instance, a flag design with the size 500 x 300 pixels indicates a horizontal display. A flag design with the size 300 x 500 pixels indicates a vertical display.
    3. Describe the general features of the design. Transparant background, borders, ... Whether the coat of arms should use specific shield shapes, have a crown etc. You also might to clarify the purpose or 'location' of your image (a newspaper header, a thumbnail for your factbook, ...).
    4. Provide image-url(s) if you want specific images/elements to be included. Additionally you could mention certain colours or effects or post images as a reference.
    5. The opposite: make sure if you don't want specific features to include your design: avoiding certain font types, colour schemes etc.

    I'm open an 'official' thread so we can stay nice and organized again.

    Personally, I'm offering my services in the creation of whatever graphics you need. I'm assuming some great gurus like Q might join in too. I'll only say that you need to give me some material to work with. I'd rather not go looking around for things but I will if I consider it helpful to the creative aspect of the image.

    Can someone please make a flag for me? The flags I have made have failed to impress me or make me happy. I quiet honestly can't think of a design.

    I like rather simple flags, and I'd prefer Red, white, and green to be in it, but it isn't necessary.

    Anyway, thank you in advance

    I prefer to do completely original stuff =]. Makes rp much more fun...

    Unfortunately, I haven't the damnedest clue as to how to make good signature banners... Being restricted to GIMP doesn't help much either xD

    Here are some proposals based on several traditional flag designs. I can easily provide them without the coat of arms if necessary. I maintained the colours of your choice: red, green, and occasionally white. Please let me know what you think.

    I really like the first one, and I'd like it to be shrunk to 19.5 kb and 80 by 80 pixels so I can use it as my avatar.

    I graciously thank you

    Here are several sizes, for several uses as you might see fit, at 80px, 150px, 300px and 650px width.

    [ 80px | 150px | 300px | 650px ]

    I could use a banner. I have no images that I really want in the banner, trusting on the creativity of whoever might make it. I would like it to show the division in ratomkira (maybe on the one side the industrial/skyscraper face of ratomkira and on the other side more rural with some fighting).

    Thanks in advance to whoever is willing.

    I'd be willing to with actual images provided. Right now I'm too drunk to actually want to do otherwise.

    I might be willing to take a stab at it. Can you tell me what the state emblem/coat of arms in your flag is so I can incorporate it into the banner?

    I'm gonna have to go ahead an ask for a banner.

    It doesn't need to be extremely flashy, I'd just like to have the flag on it somewhere, and Repubblica Cortona in some cursive font. The rest is up to your creativity.

    For those really gifted individuals, if you can make the Cortonan Flag appear waving, I'd be even happier ^o^

    Banners are rare these days ever since Kelas went awol and Coro is too busy blowing buildings up.
