I threw this together for the Beer dot Com "Fix Our Logo" contest. My entry did not have the "C" and the "M," and all of the finalists had the "Dot Com" in their logo, so I withdrew. This has become more of a personal wallpaper and not a logo. I should say that the Beer Cap actually had a lot of time put into it. The rest was more "thrown together," but obviously had some thought behind it. Everything was done in Photoshop 5.5 with very few references. I don't drink beer. I did look at a Royal Crown Draft Cola bottlecap for inspiration and hints of lighting. I played with the background color to hint at the color of beer as well... I was not attempting to make it look realistic though. Everything is stylized.
This is about as far as I can take it without feedback. In order to improve, I need suggestions. So, what's not working? What could I do differently? Please, hit me with your best shot. I want to push this further. How can I?
