    I need a banner designed for a new book. It needs to look like the cover of a book. It is about zombies and the Pentagon.

    The Title is "Fortress Pentagon"
    SEMrush
    It needs to have one or more of the following elements:
    1. The Pentagon
    2. US President's helicopter example here.
    3 Blood and guns
    4. Zombies
    5. Simple colors, having a screen print look and feel is preferred
    6. The final file MUST be at least 300dpi.

    I want it to be proportional to a wall poster, like 6:9 size ratio. I only Pay Pal. I will end the contest early if something is really great. Contest ends in 72 hours. I will post feedback quickly.

    Please remember to watermark your designs. Please do not PM me with questions, post them along with submissions in this thread.

    Feel free to look at my other past contests to see the sort of designs I have chosen.

    the quality is not too good because of the hosting server.

    A good start. Can I see it without the stuff in the middle of the Pentagon?

    It would be cool to see the Presidential helicopter somewhere.

    Thanks!

    I like this ALOT. One change. Please remove the Captain America Zombie on the right of the page. The one right above the pistol with the star shield.

    I think we're almost there.

    There are a bunch of sky scrapers in the background on the right. Those need to go.

    The pistol on the right should be a baretta - examples below.
    http://www.google.com/images?q=bere....5j2.7.0...0.0...1c.jcK6PsoHiIU&nfpr=&spell=1

    Pentagon is misspelled in the title.

    Last, Fortress Pentagon - the letters should take up the top 1/3 of the page. Don't change the overall layout, just make the letters larger. Switch it to this font and I think we're good - http://www.myinkblog.com/10-awesome-free-grunge-fonts/
