So here you go, this is finally finished. I sent away my final design to the client and it's up to them to pick one now.
Things learned: Make up a CONTRACT. I got seriously frustrated with this one. A good man on the forums advised to break up the process into 3 parts and follow the structure. It's a good idea. Without it the entire thing became a massive clusterfuck with us going back and forth between designs and generally everyone got frustrated. In the end I think they picked one of the very first ones, to my confusion. Why the hell I was I wasting my time with the next 12 then?!
Another thing I learned. Particles and textures are awesome. However too much and it becomes silly.
Anyway. Artwork now. Critique is very much welcome.
These are pretty much in sequential order but I omitted some of the same ones.
Let me know what you think! Tips, critique etc
PS: My favourite is v10, but I think they'll choose v3, 11 or 15.
