Scalable Vector Graphics is an XML-based format developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as a vector graphics format to be used on the web (however, since its creation it is being used in other areas of computing). Vector graphics are made up of definite curves, lines, and points. These allow for images to be scaled without necessarily losing detail compared to traditional raster graphics, which lose detail as they are scaled. This can also cause a variety of artifacts, such as pixelation.


Depending on the bit pack, you have either to handwrite your svg or you're free to use tools such as Inkscape as well.
You're free to use whatever you want for major battle entries, though you might get the best results if you do the code yourself ;D

Expert Tips

Here are two important things to keep in mind:
- SVGs can be animated! If you aim for a very cool first impression, an animation might be the best thing to achieve this!
- SVGs can be interactive! There might be cool situations, where interaction with the svg are useful. Be creative!!! ^o^
