Rusty !!

Here's your drumhead design with finishing effects, and a couple of closeups that show some detail. We've screened back the fire, and added some interplay and subtle effects. The outer type now has a gold leaf texture. The maltese has an outer glow, and is lit from below, set aglow by the flames. The banner is approached in a similar manner. The gold belt trim, buckles, letters and eyelets are done in brushed antique gold. The way the bagpipes are placed in the belt opening has been refined. Additional effects have been added wherever appropriate. Earlier versions are posted further down the page.
