Used the flag of India to create this tiny piece:



I am having some problems creating the white snow and the bird to blend with the sun's rays as well as snow.

Comments would be really appreciated.


EDIT: Remade this with proper proportions


Now, I have problems with one thing. The Indian Flag as a blue circle named Ashoka Chakra in the middle of white section where I have made a black bird. I just can't think of what to be done to have a blue chakra instead of the bird.

@A2J2: Make sure it has the same proportions as the Indian flag.

@Mrmo: is that the Danish flag? If so it needs to be taller :I

Is it allright to use colours like gray instead of white which it actually is in the flag?

Is it allright to turn the flag mirrored or 90 degrees?

edit:

because as patriotic as I am, I'm working on a logo for my own game project which resembles the flag of Finland. I feel it could make it in the contest if the questions above are approved.

Seems like a pretty neat idea. I think I will do something based off of the Tanzanian flag: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/38/Flag_of_Tanzania.svg/500px-Flag_of_Tanzania.svg.png

Good luck, everyone! :D

Is this a good idea? D:

This challenge is interesting. I tried Germany... Not sure if I will be able to finish it though.



My lighting skills suck and I never did an image that big before.

You should fix the AA of that circle, too. It's pretty bad.

@Adam: Probably not - that's more of an extreme close up portrait? Scene = Some kind of backdrop with/without a figure or whatever.

The pixel art is not mine, but the owner asked me for a little help. I just do not understand anything about, and come here, ask how it's getting, what should I improve or add.

@Lehmure : The first two panels are nice, but the last one doesn't seem to match with the theme you have already created. I would suggest doing same thing, but using the them your already have. Or, you could make each panel a different theme.
