Pop Quiz: Flags!

Happy Saturday, folks! To complement our current country-themed character design contest, your one-day quick-fire challenge this time out is:

Make a cool flag!

You could redesign the flag of an actual or fictional country, or a flag for a team of super-heroes, or a pirate ship flag, or anything else you can imagine fluttering in the wind. Or the vacuum of space, I suppose, though that wouldn't involve much fluttering. You can do a regular rectangular shaped flag, or a pennant, or some other awesome shape.

You only get one entry -- that's right, just one! So make it your best. Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular contest, but instead of a whole week I'll announce the winner either tonight or tomorrow morning. Elaborate backgrounds aren't necessary, though if you've got one it's fine.

  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the HeroMachine Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his "Bayou Belle" character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). Here's a quick-start guide on how to do that for various image hosting services.

The winner will receive their choice of either one item or one portrait to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 release, or one Sketch of the Day style drawing where you pick the subject and I draw it how I like.

Good luck!
