Nice to see an entry that is outside the expected. This is a great idea. Only critiques on this would be to duplicate your layers of the text and central graphic . Then flatten this grouping and slightly distort the flattened layer so that the bottom is slightly wider than the top to align with the sides of the stone below. As it is right now, the added elements are slightly face on. I don't know if a more monotone look would be more suitable for an engraving or if the colour version is better. I'll leave that to you to decide.
Hands down the most creative piece of work in this contest.
One other thing ... since the theme of the contest was to combine corporations with currency, you might want to include the Hanna Barbera logo into your entry.
Thanks for the tips c00per. I tweaked it some (off-face) before posting, but evidently it wasn't enough. . I will post an edit a bit later. Isn't Bank of Bedrock considered a corporation. Oh, but I just thought of something that I can use the Hanna-Barbara logo for in the design. Cool.
Now this is what I call hard currency. Quality work here.
Nice to see such interesting critiques cooper. I agree, this entry is thinking outside the box. Good work. (ps. I wouldn't want to carry to many of these in my wallet. .)
