I like the green color reflections of the hologram.

 Amazing detail here, for one moment I thought it was just the character on the left super-imposed onto an image of a bank note. That is until I decided the zoom in. Bravo!

 Looks like real money

I hope they will do euro bills who look like that!

 Like the way you rendered paper & mettalic texture with 20 colours.

Looks real =)

 Debo felicitarte mi hermano! este dibujo es genial!!! sos un mounstro, se nota muchisimo tu evolución!

Balamoot (Level 10 Maniac) @ 8/15/2011 10:04

Awesomely done, jal. Reminds me of some south-eastern asian currency. And yes, though there is a strict color limit in the callenge, you've managed to do the holo-effect.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 8/15/2011 02:20

Apart from all things below I love how you gave the texture effect.

MyO (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/15/2011 02:14

Bizarre, sir, totally bizarre. You have my vote.

Level 1 (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/14/2011 17:31

 Gets my vote, great colors and the style make it unique, keep it up :P

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/14/2011 12:40

Very nice! Has my vote. :)

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 8/14/2011 10:36

I had a good laugh, Bank d' Jal!

I think you should remove the hologram effect and consider doing it differently, because the forms with these effects are quite hard to read. I think more contrast will improve this piece drastically, especially between the background and the scarab, but also on the writing at the bottom of the note.

Dont (Level 6 Garbage) @ 8/14/2011 10:35

 Wonderful! Got my vote.

showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 8/14/2011 08:47

This is really exciting to look at, thanks for making it. : )

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/14/2011 08:35

@Dawn, yes!, the 20 color limit really hurt in making a hologram/metallic effect in very limited areas. I found I really needed more subtle color changes for the note overall. Quite challenging as it turned out and this is the best balance I could find :/

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 8/14/2011 08:32

Great looking note. The green is a bit odd on its own...if I understand it correctly you were trying to convey chromatic dispersion but ran out of rainbow-colors?

 About time you won another challenge.
