Doulingo Course Icon Mockups

I decided to make some mockup icons for Duolingo courses that I'd like to see in the future. There is probably no chance of a UK English course coming into fruition, but I made the icon for fun anyways. I had to heavily simplify the Croatian flag, so sorry if it's missing any important details.

UPDATE : I fixed the spelling of Croatian, added the yellow gradient, and fixed the Gujarat flag.

Which one of the above courses would you be most excited for to learn?

Note : the number of learners displayed on the icons were mostly gathered from vote counts on various language suggestion posts. All of which, you can find gathered in the link below :

Hope you enjoy!

I think Icelandic and Mandarin Chinese would be awesome.

I'd love to see an Icelandic and Faroese course. Finding a good reliable learning resource for Faroese is relatively hard, and it would be a huge help if it were available on Duolingo.

May 30, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KlenovvySyrop

Where is (Or Was) Faroese spoken?

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Faroese is the official language of the Faroe Islands. It has around a population of 66,000 speakers. You can find out more in the link below.

How did I not guess that... Well thank you.

I'd love to see your image but for some reason it's not available. Could you please reupload it?

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Try exiting and revisiting the page, it should load then. I had similar complications earlier.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goosefield

It looks like the image is deleted. Try loading the image in a private browser session, it won't work.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Ok, I'll try re-uploading it. I'll tell you when I'm done.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goosefield

Thank you. I can see it now.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

I re-uploaded it. I hope it's working now.

These are awesome. Just wondering, how/what programs did you use to make these? I'm really interested in design of any sort so I'm asking solely out of curiosity.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

I used Fire Alpaca, it's an art program that's free of cost. I also used the same program to draw my profile picture. Here's a link to their website.

Enjoy!

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tuesday.

Thanks a lot! I'll make sure to check the program out.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

I love firealpaca dude!I animate on it!

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

That's nice to hear, may I ask what you draw?

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

anime style stuff

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Nice, I tend to draw wolves and other furry critters.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

i also draw in a sketchbook much more though!

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goosefield

This is a really interesting mockup. Did you make the monument images as well? They look really nice. I would be most interested in learning Icelandic and Finnish (out of this picture).

Also, you have the Austrian flag for Gujarati.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

What do you mean by "monument images"?

Sorry about the flag mix-up. I meant to use the Gurajat flag, but I guess I forgot to add the white section at the bottom. Thanks for pointing that out.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goosefield

By "monument" I mean the pictures of the buildings above the language name. Also, I think Duolingo would use the Indian flag for all Indian languages since it's the modern flag.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Oh, yes. I drew everything from the backgrounds, the monuments, and the flags.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

I fixed the Gujarat flag.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goosefield

I'd love to see it but the picture disappeared again!

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

I re-uploaded it once more, hope you can see it now.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goosefield

It's not visible (sorry).

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goosefield

Sorry, it's still not working.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

I re-uploaded it again, hopefully it's working now.

Lavethwolf (about ur drawing stuff) i cant reply to that for some reason so im making a new comment but thats cool!

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Thanks for the compliment! What you see in my profile picture is what my art usually looks like. But occasionally I might do something different like the Duolingo mockups.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

cool!I like your artstyle

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Thank you very much! By the way, do you happen to upload your art anywhere? I would like to see some of it.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

no i dont :|

June 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

do you?

June 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

No, I don't. I keep all my art offline ( excluding my profile picture ).

June 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Wait, I forgot. I did upload my art on Khan Academy. The art there is nothing like the art I draw now. Here's a link to my account if you'd like to see. I don't really upload to it anymore.

https://www.khanacademy.org/profile/Laveth/projects

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DonFiore

Still not seeing it. When I click "open in a new tab" it just takes me to Google sign-up. Can you upload it to an actual image hosting site?

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

I don't have any other social media accounts. I'm a net hermit that only resides on Duolingo and Khan Academy. But I'll try re-uploading it once more.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

I re-uploaded it once more, hope you can see it now.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DonFiore

I can and it looks great, thank you :) (btw, you don't need an account to upload an image on many (most?) image hosting sites, just upload it and copy the link)

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Thanks for telling me, maybe I'll look into using an image hosting site in the future.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goosefield

You should use Imgur. It doesn't require an account to upload photos.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/goosefield

You may have to include a direct link to the image. Could you post your Imgur link here? I can find the direct link for you.

June 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

I uploaded it to Imgur and replaced the image URL in my post. But now the image is refusing to load. What could I have done wrong?

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Thanks, I accidentally replaced the image source with the link to the webpage that contained the image rather than the image itself. It should be working now.

June 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

(Again the thing where i cant reply so im making a new comment) yeah that looks COMPLETELY different,also i used to use khan academy actually.(Also now i can see the images before i couldnt and they look exactly like duolingo would make it!)

June 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

Yeah, I was pretty unhappy with my art, so I decided to leave the online art community and practice my art offline. I've been experimenting with various different art styles. I think I may settle with the style in my profile picture.

Although my art style has changed, I generally still draw the same things ( furries, more furries, and some tubby furries ), and I plan on making an art account once I get a good grasp of my new style. The big art style shift was far harder than I expected.

By the way, could you give me a link to your Khan Academy account? I'd like to see it.

June 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

eh..dont remember it or its password or username...

June 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

dont remember my username...

June 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

That's unfortunate to hear. Would you plan on uploading your art in the future?

June 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shome.D.S

Probably,just not right now,my art is still developing and I'm experimenting with different styles.

June 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LavethWolf

I guess that makes two of us. By the way, if you do begin uploading your art. Which website would you use. I'm considering using Scratch, DeviantArt, Furaffinity, or Weasyl.
