    I recently got Photoshop and now am addicted to messing around with Sukritact's civ icon template. Here are a couple icons, available for anyone to use.


    Mali (the modern country, not the Empire). The background is an average of the current flag's green and gold.


    San Marino


    Marshall Islands


    Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic


    Arizona. Like with Mali, the background color is an average, here with a nice coincidence that it somewhat resembles the flag of Phoenix.

    Thanks, but I'd hardly call myself an artist in any but the broadest sense of the word. :p (I'll reserve that title for when I've made at least a map. :D)

    A few more.


    Sassanids


    Uzbekistan (the four other post-Soviet -stans each have one - Hiram made icons for Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, Gatoutak is making Kazakhstan and has an icon for it, and OW is making Turkmenistan and has an icon for it, so I thought I'd complete the set with an Uzbek icon.)


    Abkhazia (Hiram posted an Abkhazian icon yesterday, but I thought the hand and stars from the flag were too nice to go to waste, so now I guess there's room for two modders to make Abkhazia civs without having to create their own icons. :p)


    Nagorno-Karabakh (the colors are from JFD and Jan's Armenia, but reversed - a trick I stole from Nix's Wendish icon having reversed Frankish colors)


    Friesland


    Puerto Rico


    Chad


    Sarawak


    Dominica

    These look very nice! I downloaded Sukritact's Icon Template not too long ago, but I have no Idea how to use them with Photoshop...

    Sukritact provides instructions in the first post of the thread for the template; if there's anything in particular you don't understand I'll see if I can help.

    Meanwhile, more icons!


    Anguilla


    Castile (using vanilla Spain colors)


    León


    Aragon


    Navarre​

    Just some simple questioning here but is there a reason that you pick such obscure civilizations to make icons for? In case someone wants to produce them or just for aesthetic? Because I believe without a doubt some of these icons are simply beautiful but the civilizations they represent are so offbeat and tangent in world history.

    Does he? The first half is for the most part pretty obscure, or rather, more appropriately, uninteresting. The second, not so much.

    Mostly just for the aesthetic, as well as by selecting Freeciv civs, countries in Paradox games, etc. at random and challenging myself to make a suitable icon.

    I presume it's a relatively enjoyable pass-time as well?

    That Uzbekistan icon from earlier is outstanding btw! As well as everything else, of course! :)

    It is addictive, I can atest to that.
    León is also really good, by the way.

    Occitania's foreground color is #f1e657, and its background is #d6293f; for León, it's #630b57 on #d3bdd0.
