    I was planning on making a banner with some kind of animal or dragon on it, but then I realised medieval engineers doesn't have much in the ways of animals.
    So i had a think about it and what might be in medieval engineers mythology and came up with this:
    [​IMG]
    The mighty Sabiroid of ancient mythology! (and totally not space).

    I'm not sure about the background, I might change it. Also not sure if I did the image layers right but here they are:

    I don't get the point you're trying to prove here. This is a game, and those are just symbols. Is there France in the game? No, duh.

    Well... perhaps some people would like to play French theme. But also some other countries uses the symbol. I think it's pretty decorative.

    A simple creation like a mere symbol "belonging" to a nation because it was created in said nation, is quite a stupid idea if you ask me. I'm italian, we made pizza, so what? I'm gonna go to the americans and say "Hey did you not study history guys? Pizza is italian only!!!11111!!!11". Whatever, let's not go off topic as I'm quite certain moderators and developers don't want it, especially in a thread made for a contest.

    well i wasn't that happy with the background anyway, and i might change it.

    Also if anyone wants to use the foreground image I drew with their own background feel free, it's not like there's a prize for this comp you just get the flag in game, and I'd be happy if that Sabiroid icon got in ;u;

    Actually I seem to be too dumb to understand how exactly those layers have to be done in order to be legit for the contest.

    Background layer (simply the background, might be just a plain background), pattern layer (as in stripes or w/e you wanna fill your pattern with) and symbol layer (any symbol you want), although all these layers must have maximum 3 colors in total.

    About the alpha masking, if I'm not wrong, you just paint for example the background transparent, then you paint the pattern white and the background of the pattern transparent, same thing with the symbols: white and background transparent. I might be completely wrong here, but this is as far as I understand. Hope I helped you.

    Alright here is my second attempt at getting all the technical stuff right. Please help if you can!

    Current Understanding:
    1. Symbol layer is all white or black with transparent around it
    2. Pattern layer is all white or black with transparent around it
    3. Completed is both layers on top of each other, with
    a color chosen for each layer, and a color chosen for the background

    Completed Banner:
    [​IMG]

    Pattern:
    [​IMG]

    Symbol:

    Any feedback on the technical side would be nice. The griffin was from Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Griffin.

    I like both of these.:tu: They totally beat the banner I drew up. I would have posted it, but I decided against creating another account just to put up the images. (Also, I read the full terms and spotted a few too many marketing rights going to Keen. Not that I expect them to use them.)

    Edit: My avatar is now the banner I was going to enter.

    I like all your banners. Also very simple ones. Communist Penguin's sabiroid monster inspires me more and more every time when I'm looking it. I was also thinking to make dragon but perhaps one is enough :)
