More artwork, not ready for Deviant Art yet but since the Steam Knight side view is taking so long I thought I'd share this.

Bit of a change of direction - here's how I imagine the Jackelian flag might look. I've had to make it up from scratch as unfortunately I don't have the time to delve into the books to see if any flags are mentioned.

The words around the edge.. in probably poorly translated latin are:

Out of the darkness a lion roars - from the old ways into a new Jackals.

So, let me know what you think or would prefer to see. If the end product looks good I might do some other nations flags. Bear in mind this is a very early version of what I'd like to see, basically a more face on camera angle with storm clouds behind, the flag in tatters and a battlefield around.

Also a bit of an explanation - People who have recently tried to join the Deviant Art group will have been disappointed when confronted by a 'Membership is Closed' announcement. This is far from the truth, the situation has been fixed so that new members are added immediately and I've sent out messages to anyone who attempted to join and was turned away.

Can't decide whether it looks better in red or blue... Open to other colour options!

I think it looks brilliant in either colour to be honest!

Just managed to sign up for the group over on devianART too today.

Hopefully I'll be accepted!

I love the anime style illustration - Molly and Oliver, I presume??

The only thing that looks slightly out of place are the clothes, tho. I had always imagined him wearing a Victorian style flat cap, and her a big bustly dress from the period.

Maybe that's just me tho?

Lovely work anyway.

 ;D

Massively improved and completely redone version of the Jackalien flag. Still a work in progress.

That looks really nice. I wonder what the flag of Quatershift would look like?

To represent the different countries I might do slightly different things, instead of a flag perhaps I'll do a WWII style poster which captures their failing communist state.

Nice.

Just remember, 'There's no "i" in Carlist.'

Oh, okay, there's one, then!

Execute it!

What I would love to see are some Jackelian airships illustrated in all their glory!

I wish we had airship travel today. How cool would it be to fly to holiday on a big zep!

Ask and you shall recieve! I hope this lives up to your expectations.

Here is my take on a Jackalien type of airship - though exactly where it comes from and what period of history is more of a mystery. I don't think this is quite finished yet but it's far enough along for me to let it sit for a while.
