    Nice Coin! Looks like we had the same general idea. Great minds think alike :)

    I like the way you got the ships to appear beveled. I tried to create a similar effect, but it ended up looking really bad, so I opted for some simple shadow drops (which, against the gradient, I think worked well enough).

    Thanks everyone for your positive comments.

    Leibniz and Newton yep that would be us lol. Didn't see your entry until Klaus bumped it back to the front page.

    Embossing and a variety of layer blending options were used for those. The most difficult part though was making the two ships look the same...height, color, darks and highlights, etc.
