Looking for high resolution "orzel"

One of my hobbies is building & rebuilding electric guitars. For my new project I'm gonna rebuild an old Fender into a Polish flag. Top half white & bottom red. I'd like to have a nice "orzel" on it too.

Basically I'll cut out it out as black & white stencil, cut out the black parts & spray paint it. Kinda like this

Now my problem is, the eagles I find on the web are all too complicated to transform in black/white & cut out on a small surface. Basically I'm looking for something along the lines of this:

A simple version that looks like the one on the flag. Anyone with Illustrator skills or a good print that can be scanned? Or a good pic from the net?

I'll post the finished guitar pics online of course. :-)

Thanks for the help.

No, they're too hard to cut out but thanks. I think I'm gonna have to ask someone to design one with more simplistic lines so it's easy to cut out. Also it has to be a bigger resolution :(

why is the first image posted by Eurola difficult, because of the curvature of the edges?

is this closer to what you're looking for?

Yeah, this is way better, this is usable thanks. The others aren't because I need to print this & cut out the black parts. The part of my guitar where I will spray pain it is only approx. 10 by 10 cm so I have to resize the picture, if it's too detailed I have to start cutting out tiny bits & it will be a mess. I'll try with yours, thanks. :)

Oh that's great. But I don't know how good you are with Illustrator/PS I can take out colours, resize, etc.. myself What I'd really need is someone who could draw me one from scratch, something that's still recognisable as a Polish Orzel but without too much detail. In black/white :)

well, i'm not, image processing is my research field, i might be able to do better than those programs ;)

and it would be fun to use my work for something more fun than usual.

glowa- image processing- what kind of programs do you use for this?

Awesome. Whatever file you want but preferably a copy of the original, so no compresion like jpg or gif. And preferably high res so I can resize to my liking. That'd be awesoem guys, I'll post the results after the guitar is finished then :)

I like your determination sparrow. I'd love to see the end result posted on line some day. Can't find any better images for you...

hi, i was gone for the weekend, so couldn't reply.
normally I don't use any ready-to-use software because I tend to design fully automatic techniques for medical imaging. that means, that I basically do a lot of programming and create small software packages that do specific tasks.

but if I need to do something very simple by clicking, my choice is Gimp.

Hey Sparrow- I sent you an email about your Polish eagle image if you are still in need of a copy.
