A new design?
The top image, with it's burnished gold areas, is what I was striving for, though I'm not sure that that is that great.
The idea will never work if it isn't turned into something actual, and it may fail, or not. Time, a little time is needed. For me, the process of making something, the need to focus on the physical, makes it difficult for me to see with a clear and critical eye about a design, though there is a clear, critical eye about the technical aspects. Aesthetic vs technical.
