Illustration workshop: Today's top 4 requests
This set's target time for completion is 23:00, May 31, 2015 (UTC).
They will all be archived at 23:00, June 3, 2015 (UTC) if they are not done.

Above are the "Top 4" requests of the day. The goal is to fulfill all of them within 48 hours. Afterwards they are replaced with four new requests. Images for the "Top 4" come from the suggestions list, which is generally populated by files for cleanup and SVG backlogs that need to be cleared. Incomplete requests are archived after one week.

The requests with blue border saying "Not taken yet" are not being worked on by anyone. If you would like to take one of these requests, edit this page and locate the gallery with the requests. Type your username in the taken by= parameter of the thumbnail caption (excluding User:) and save the page.

Once you finish the request, upload it and edit this page again. If the image was uploaded over an older version, type done (in all lowercase) in the new file= parameter. If the file was uploaded with a new name, add the new file name into the new file= parameter (excluding File:). See {{Gl request}} documentation for more information.

Flags of Qing China[edit]

Flag of the Qing dynasty, List of Chinese flags
Vectorise please, many thanks. TRAJAN 117 (talk) 02:16, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

Is the vector graphic I've added to the gallery accurate enough to use as a basis? NikNaks talk - gallery 18:06, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Image's request under progression Request taken by Sodacan (talk) 14:11, 26 April 2015 (UTC).

@User:TRAJAN 117: I based the 1889-1912 flag on the file: File:Dragonflag.jpg. Sodacan (talk) 14:59, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
And the 1862-1889 flag on this photo: Flag from 'Fuzhou China Shipping Culture Museum' Sodacan (talk) 15:04, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
@Sodacan:, I do not believe that your vectorization of the the 1889-1912 flag is based on a reliable source. Look at e. g. [1], it shows the flag we already have. I found the image of File:Dragonflag.jpg also as File:Personal standard of State Chief Bao Dai.png, where I know that it is outrightly wrong, as the correct flag of Bao Dai is different [2] (image is based on books I have at home).

At the moment, I think the SVG should not be used. Another topic: The colors, shouldn't we use the yellow of File:Flag_of_the_Qing_dynasty_(1889-1912).svg?--Antemister (talk) 17:12, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

@Sodacan: Many thanks for vectorising these flags, as I completely forgot about them! However, I noticed that the dragon scales are missing on the first two flags, just wondering if you could perhaps correct this, many thanks. TRAJAN 117 (talk) 15:02, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Military insignia[edit]

55th Support Battalion, 38th Signal Battalion
Please create vector versions of these images. -- 21lima (talk) 11:45, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
The second image (38th Signal COA) is a vector embedded in the source PDF, so it should be trivial for someone with some spare time to extract. Sn1per (t)(c) 22:25, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
I stand corrected, the vector has already been extracted File:38th Signal Battalion Coat of Arms-vector.svg Sn1per (t)(c) 22:27, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Ah. I will put that image in a proper category. --21lima (talk) 23:15, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

UK Opinion Polling 2010-2015[edit]

United Kingdom general election, 2015, Opinion polling for the 2015 United Kingdom general election
Hi, if anyone fancies doing it, I would like to request a version of this graphic that also shows the actual percentages of votes cast for each of the parties in the 2015 general election. I am envisaging that this could be done using some kind of colour-coded graphical symbol -- one that can be distinguished from the dots representing the polls -- placed at the extreme right of the existing graphic. There would also need to be a way of explaining the meaning in the caption (see existing caption at e.g. Opinion polling for the 2015 United Kingdom general election#Graphical summary). The actual numbers of votes cast for each of the parties are available here. The colour-coding used in the graphic is explained in the above-linked caption. BTW, I mentioned this request to the creator of the image, but no response.

Presidential Standard of Angola[edit]

Flag of Angola, President of Angola
Could someone perhaps draw a vector image of the presidential standard of Angola please, many thanks. TRAJAN 117 (talk) 15:11, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
It appears the center machete, star and cogwheel are the same as from the Flag of Angola. Cheers, Mliu92 (talk) 17:18, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Would any of these wreaths be suitable? If so, it'd be trivial to recolour it gold and put the pieces together. NikNaks talk - gallery 19:36, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
I've put an example wreath on an SVG. It can always be changed later. NikNaks talk - gallery 14:35, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

@NikNaks: Although one should not be that strict with african flags, I believe File:Coat of Arms of the People's Republic of Congo.svg has a better one for that flag.--Antemister (talk) 20:37, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

I tried fiddling with that wreath and coloured it as with the FOTW source, but I'm not convinced by it, really! You can mess around with it if you want to try to get it looking better. I'm not really sure what to try... NikNaks talk - gallery 12:44, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
I might be able to try an alternate style of wreath as well this afternoon, to see how everyone feels. Fry1989 eh? 16:42, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Yeah my try didn't turn out so good :( I think it would be important to get it to look ore like the image in FOTW though. Fry1989 eh? 22:25, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
I agree, but the image on FOTW is too small to be able to trace it and have it look half decent. NikNaks talk - gallery 11:35, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Many thanks to everyone for the help so far :) TRAJAN 117 (talk) 08:45, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Royal Standards of Jordan[edit]

Resolved: NikNaks talk - gallery 13:39, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Would anyone be able to re-construct the rays and white oval on the Royal Standard of the King of Jordan as according to the construction sheets available on FOTW? As a bonus, apparently the Crown Prince also has a standard. There's no construction sheet but if anybody likes a challenge I would be very thankful. Fry1989 eh? 19:57, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

I've had a crack at improving it. I'm not 100% sure exactly how the rays joining the ellipse on the sides left and right are meant to work; whether the lengths given on the construction sheet (6 & 9) refer to the arc lengths or a straight line, and indeed whether that should impact on the shape of the ellipse. Unfortunately my attempts to calculate the arc length directly proved rather fruitless, but I'll keep at it. Let me know if there are obvious other problems/differences that need addressing. I'll have a crack at the Crown Prince's now. NikNaks talk - gallery 15:28, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure if the crown is entirely accurate for the CP; if there's a better one available it might be worth swapping it out. Regardless, find a version in the gallery. NikNaks talk - gallery 17:09, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Found a Matlab script that I got to work, so the current upload is as accurate as I can get those rays (~3dp for the points on the ellipse and the ellipse's dimensions). I'm sure someone with more technical know-how might be able to get it to even higher accuracy, but it looks fine to me. NikNaks talk - gallery 19:32, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, and so swift! Those look great :) Fry1989 eh? 20:02, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
@Fry1989: The only thing I'm not so sure about is the crown. From the FOTW page, it seems like the Royal Standard variously has a star, a white crown, a filled crown with an outline etc. Would it be worth trying to have copies of all these variations, or is that unimportant? There are also a good deal of historical variations but I'm not sure how useful they are. NikNaks talk - gallery 12:19, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
@NikNaks: I've uploaded a version of the Crown Prince's crown, as displayed on his website, which may help with the Crown Prince's Royal Standard. Cheers, Mliu92 (talk) 15:20, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Swapped it in, thanks a lot!  :) NikNaks talk - gallery 15:33, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
@NikNaks:, I'm not terribly picky, I'm just happy to have the flags redone. However if you have free time and want to do it, you can make the variants.
@Mliu92:, thank you for that new crown. Fry1989 eh? 16:01, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Out of boredom I have populated the Royal Standards of Jordan category with some variations from FOTW. NikNaks talk - gallery 11:25, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Presidential Standard of Zaire[edit]

Flag of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, List of flags of the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Could somebody perhaps have a crack at this flag please, many thanks. TRAJAN 117 (talk) 08:51, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Any idea if some of the component diagrams are available as vectors? I had a quick look for the tank and the plane but couldn't find anything useful. NikNaks talk - gallery 13:39, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Made a start with the CoA. Will keep looking for the other components. NikNaks talk - gallery 14:09, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
@TRAJAN 117: Okay, I found a reasonably similar schematic for the tank (an AMX-13 according to FOTW) that I traced and put in, but I can't find anything under Mirage that looks similar to the plane. There's also no information on the ship so I'm a bit clueless there. Let me know if you have more information that could help. NikNaks talk - gallery 13:00, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
Hope to get access to better imagethe next days, please wait...--Antemister (talk) 16:09, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

@NikNaks: sent it to you.--Antemister (talk) 10:14, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the PDF. It is still not quite perfect as far as tracing is concerned, but it is at least much better than the other image we had. I've traced the remaining machines and added them to the image. If it is preferable to use the tank from the PDF as well, so that it is more consistent, I've included that in the file as well (just change the tank in x:href="#tank" to tank2. I'm not sure what else can be done on this without access to schematics of the machinery or access to a proper vector artist! NikNaks talk - gallery 13:26, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
Is it possible to use thinner contours for ship and plane? Now this is somewhat inconsistent in relation to the emblem. Could you add the fringe from File:Flag of the Vietnamese National Army.svg?--Antemister (talk) 21:41, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

@Antemister: & @NikNaks: looks great, many thanks. Note: the standard should have a 3:4 ratio. TRAJAN 117 (talk) 03:06, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

The thinner lines would require a manual trace that I don't really have the time or energy for at present. Anyone else is welcome to have a go, though. As for the fringe it seems like a lot of effort to try to include it, especially as it is such a huge file that it will likely crash my copy of Inkscape. I will, however, fix the dimensions. NikNaks talk - gallery 15:58, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
I heavily optimised the Vietnam fringe and added it to the file, too. NikNaks talk - gallery 16:52, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Do you have the raw data? I can't see a link to it anywhere in the article, but if you can provide it, it's fairly straightforward to plot it. NikNaks talk - gallery 13:29, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

User:NikNaks, can we just use the the Huffington Post as a source and make the chart similar to American Lung Association chart? QuackGuru (talk) 19:16, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
