The original look was intended for the objects to appear suspended in glass. But we'll move them above the rosette glass and see how that works.

There's no way to make angel wings orange that doesn't make them look like something out of a cartoon. I gave them a glass overlay that has a faint orange tint.

Quote:
Book at top in light green


That also doesn't work very well. I colored it a tint called "linen". It's a variant of white with orange leanings.

Quote:
Mts at bottom in white or maybe blue and white like Er'canas mountains
Center disc in light green with lettering in black.


Done. I can't picture the Er'cana mountains right now, so I just did a dark blue to white gradient with a orange glass overlay.

I STILL need another symbol for the bottom of the rosette.

Yes, I did, and I'm working on a base design for the two to share.

And here's the first draft of the base design. Do you want both to be exactly the same except for the monograms and personalizing symbols? Or would you rather have a difference in coloration?

To avoid over-complication, the monogram itself is KoZ (D'ni doesn't have a letter X) and will be ZoZ on yours.

Okay, I thought Mys was for the bottom and Book was for the top.... can I see a visual of what you have thus far??

It's in the earlier message where I posted them -- the image changes automatically every time I upload. But here's another copy.

Here is a draft of Zesty's monogram. Included are her loves of the sea, cats, music and painting.

Wow! This one (Zesty's) is really superb and elegant in a way ... Great job again ... :D

Edit: my comment now applies to both of them, Zesty's and Kirk's ... excellent ... :)

And both initial versions of Kirk and Zesty are done. Now to see if they like 'em.

Okay....both wings white....lose the background star and add the blue/white mt to bottom that you had in first draft.

Angelmyst, I said from the start that I was not happy with that design. It was only slapped together as a color test until I got more data to work with. It's time to junk it and start over.

The only thing you've told me so far that you like is mountains. I can incorporate that as a design element, but it's not a defining trait or something I can build a rosette around; the available artwork for mountains just doesn't support that. I need at least two or more additional concepts for your design, whether they are things you like, things you do for fun, or what you do for a living. Without that information, I can't work up a decent theme.

Take a look at what Zesty did; she gave me a range of things that she and Kirk like or that they are passionate about. That allowed me to mull over some ideas and see what kind of stock art was out there to use or provide inspiration for something I could make. That's why I was able to put together a working draft so quickly that just needs to be refined to be good.

This is a direction that I would rather be going in.

Ohh, this looks more angelic already, very beautiful ... :D

... Haha, now it is changing all the time, so this doesn't apply anymore lol ... Good luck with this one further on ... :)

(I like the very first one the most btw, it is very beautiful in its simplicity and basic coloration)

I like most of the elements of your original design.
Other things I like....
Writing, my kids, swimming....I am a pretty simplistic person.
I really prefer the wings to be white though.
I like the mountain in Zestys design.
I also like the crystals from Ahnonay second sphere.

Now we have a bit of personality. A ring of children surrounding you, splashes of water for your liking of swimming, a pen for writing, and the mountain we started with.
