Default Second engraving.

My first engraving was a scene of "Delicate Arch" in Arches National Park in Southern Utah. It was done in a bulino style And was done on the front of a bicentennial Kennedy half dollar (first picture).


For my second engraving, I want to do a coin for my spinal surgeon. I had a spinal fusion of L-4 and L-5. So I tried to get a large enough silver coin to get enough detail to show the 2 vertebrae with enough shading. I added a drawing of the engraving that I am planning. The parts that are in yellow are to represent the titanium rods and screws that were used in the fusion surgery. My goal is to do the yellow parts (in the pic) as gold inlay.


Do you all think that I am biting off more than I can chew with this endeavor?
Peace,
Mark

Hi Mark

That is a very good drawing for a very good reason and a gesture on your part.
Respect.
