Okay, so it isn't super clean, I need to go back and erase some barely visible lines, but I wouldn't call this a finalized design anyways, it does need some refinement, especially at the top of the wings and the tail. I do love the colors Termhn used, so I've used them as well. I think the colors belong to both the New Mexico and Arizona flags... at least they are similar between the two. Honestly, it might could use just a splash of Oklahoma blue somewhere to make it pop, but it could turn out not as good at the same time, just something that could be played around with. Anyways, what inspired me, was the patch that the National Guard's Southwest Regiment uses, the Native American Thunderbird, and I've been playing in my head with some bird designs, though the 405th logo turned out to actually include something that could be used for the wings, which I thoughts was kinda cool. I went ahead and also tried to turn the tail into a lightning bolt to further emphasize the southwest aspect of the design. It's not perfect, needs some work, but it's a start: It might also look better if the feathers were flipped upside down so that they down from large to small rather than small to large. And here is an example of what it could look like on the forums: I ended up adding an extra row to the wings so it would be more square next to the "Southwest" text. I'm working in GIMP, and you guys can hit me up on FB if you want the GIMP file that includes all the layers if you want to play around with this design. Any thoughts/opinions?
