Hi everyone,

I'm looking for some constructive criticism about my set up.

Here is what I have. Obviously this is not to scale (DB and cloth)
What I am looking for is what do you all think about the inlays for my custom set that I am planning on purchasing from CPC.

I'm not sure about "The Hideout" text on the inlays. The font doesn't have a lot of flair, and it doesn't match anything on the button or cloth. A gradient background on the inlays might look better than solid black as well.

I like the theme, DB and cloth look great. The inlay coloring needs work IMO

I think the inlay needs to be completely revamped. Instead of being slavish to the logo from the DB and table maybe simplify? Crossed guns or a bullet as a central image? The font needs to change as well.

I feel like the black background may be throwing me off. I feel like removing the solid black background could be the right start

This version would make a nice start for a full-face ceramic chip, but I'm having a hard time visualizing it as an inlay. Previously posted DB and cloth artwork is pretty good, imo.

Thank you all so much for the input so far!!

The other back up I had was this;

^^^^agree that this looks like a ceramic graphic, not an inlay. I think it is 100 times better than the first inlay version however.

I like the 2nd one the most but still needs some work to be an inlaid chip. Decent ceramic though.
The last one you posted in post 9 is too busy and no artistic flow. Also try adding a bet line to your table cloth.
Don't settle until your very happy. Good luck

My thoughts:

Obverse side: Post 1 inlays. Drop "The Hideout", change b/w image to full color. Outline denom with black outline. Add "spikes" to the rest of the denom numbers as necessary.

Reverse side: Hitman Poker, and Denom (with spikes) over the watermark. It will mostly cover the watermark, but you will know what it is from the obverse side.
