Trying out a new format for rank insignia, where I'd show the relative sizes of the insignia against a simplified uniform.

This particular one is for the m/09 Hot Weather Class A Service Uniform for the Mercenary Corps.

As these insignia are used by all components of the corps when serving alongside Republic forces, the insignia signify rank grade, though each component has their own designations for them.

Star means the Ground Component
Wings means the Aerospace Component
Anchor means the Navy Component

Starting with the buck private and ending with the general...

OR-1 Doesn't exist, as mercs are not drafted

Air Component: Airman
Navy Component: Shipman

I like it, it is clear and concise, and it looks easy to change in regards to cuff style, pocket style, shoulder straps &C without loosing clarity :D

I find the older format a bit more attractive but this is more informative. I wonder if you could put your medals on a uniform?

If I'm going to make a full example Class A coat with full insignia, accoutrements and whatnot, it would be shown from the front.

Full dress of each rank with the proper medals and of course shown from the front

Very nice. Seems to take up less room on an image than your older ones. Very nice!

Though a collected look would give more information than detailing the insignia elements, and deliver that information in a neater package. The older style didn't account for uniform piping or whatnot.
And I spotted this format and liked it. I might even generate unit pins for the my other arms.

I saw something similar on

Did you use vectors for this, too?

That's basically the only way I CAN do it. The export can be any size, but the vector is much larger. Would be life-size if exported at 90dpi.
