good stuff ! :bigthup
i like the way you used the gradient on the text, but not on the bevel

when i have used fonts that give my jaggy edges, i try to blur it a bit and the sharpen slightly with an alpha-curve
often that gives me better results

Wow EK, they are beautiful. The gold one with that beautiful bg are a very nice contrast.

@Esper Yeah I tried to get that jagged edge to go away but it stubbornly refused to yield and I got tired of messing with it. I think it's the odd angle of the letters that makes it more pronounced.

@conbagui The metal font is called Bad Boy and the glass one is Bauer.
