A simple request for the sakes of making a possible video.

If I can work with some people, I can build a nice video easier and quicker plus you get recognition for your work.

Need someone to make an autism flag but put something that mean business.


Autism puzzle with blood dripping or maybe puddle and a book with dove perching on it. The background is white.

Want something to fit in a 512 X 384 or larger to make it fit in the video, if you can make one in one hour that would be great.

The purpose of the video is to promote for rallying, real vision, and aggression for moderation in the autistic community and the public viewer.

It going to be fun and simple.


Here is a possible autism puzzle that I am thinking of....

plus a simple white dove perching on books.

I can probably do it, although I've never done much with blood.
It would be easier if you could give me links to photos you want/ like.

In an hour? Well this is already 2 hours old so I guess not.

Blood as in gory, or as in cartoony?
On a book, what book?
Cartoon or real dove?
All of this worked into one picture, or are these seperate?

I will check back later to see what you have to say.

Blood must be dripping from the colorful puzzle but otherwise not to be gory. The idea is to show that these "puzzle" is made of blood hence illustrating the fact that these are real life.

The white is in the background. There is nothing to be put since it would be distracting and lose the purpose of the flag.

The puzzle would be like what I show above, I have thought about an open middle jigsaw puzzle but that would not work for dripping blood. IN this case, the puzzle above would be art you would used to drip blood from it. You may want to white out the extra puzzle pieces since it take up room. You would only need about 1/3 of the flag cover with colorful puzzle.

The dove is would represent the love while over books. You can't put the dove under the dripping blood because that wouldn't look right. You can easily put flying dover over a stack of books. It would be very complex to have a perching dove on a books as it take too many hours. Since flying dove is easier to place within white background, the only things is that the outline have to make dove not like blend in within the white. The dove should face toward the viewer of the flag as if it looking at you while flying.

There should be 2-3 books stack together. There should be something written at the spine of each book which take little time. One book should read Law, second book read Autism, and the bottom book should read Humanity. The book Law should be on top to protect Autism and the last book Humanity would be the foundation.

The dove and books should cover 2/3 of the flag.

Anybody who will complete this will be the creator of a possible future Autism flag and thus become credited and recorded.

Please understand that this is a flag so be sure to make the picture as widely rather than square. In later future, I would like it to be enlarged and printed on cloth for a real flag.

Heck I am willing to go along further with this idea but I need someone to make this photoshop.

I would say if you're thinking about turning this into an actual flag, someone should draw it by hand. Just compositing photos from the Internet together wouldn't look quite as nice, and then there's the legal ownership of the photos to consider.

Bah... I am not ready for enterprising this. Just the picture and nothing else. Worry about real flag later in life. The idea is to show what autistic people can do for themselves while showing their pride.

Well, I'll play with it, see what happens. I'm not sure I'm picturing what you want me to, but we'll see what happens. And repost later, with whatever I come up with.

This is my best interpertation of what you asked for:

I had to add some shading to make the bird semi-work.

Looking good.... there might be more work to be done for it in order to look good for flag but it will do for now.

How should I call you as for credit purpose?

I am going to put some other things for the video.

Considering I wasn't paying attention to copyrights, and used the pick you origionally posted which is someone's logo...... feel free to take credit yourself.

It was an akward request, wasn't sure exactly what you wanted, hard to work in what you asked for.

Here's where I had issues:
Red puzzle pieces, red blood
White background, white dove (only kind I could find)
Bookd too 3D to sit well on a 2D flag

It was harder than I thought. I'm not crazy about it, but not sure how to improve it.

Well first off, there were few jigsaw puzzle to remove.

Secondly, the blood was a beta illustration to see what it look like. In most case, the blood idea is very complex because it have to look good.

Thirdly, I think dove and books should be smaller but this time black and white all outline as black especially the writing on book.

The background should be completely white.

Here's the deal: I basically suck at visualization.
How about you find some source photos/ pictures that are what you want, and either send them to me or give me the links to find them? Here, or in a PM?
This would make it so much easier.
Especially with notes, such as "remove second puzzle piece from top and right"
Something like that anyway. To let me attempt to visualize what you truly have in mind.
Pretend you're describing it to a blind person, be very descriptive.

I'm willing to take another shot, I'm actually pretty good at photoshopping. And yes, I think my attempt here sucked, but I was a bit lost.

So, how about a dove, some books, a puzzle, and some blood?
Or at least photos of ones you like?

Then I will try again.
