I decided to make an egyptian currency of my own. Using the same size of the Egyptian bill I added my own personal design to it. I decided to use the current president of Egypt as the public figure to represent Egypt. I used well-known national monuments of Egypt. I used the Scarab beatles because it was a very important creature used by the ancient Egyptians. The pyramids were appropriate in my eyes to take up a large portion of the photo. I used egyptian coins found in the tombs of the fallen pharaohs of their history to allow the price of the currency to pop out around the corners. The designs in the back ground were to accentuate the scarab and the mask. I saw that the very outside border seemed to just stop completely in its tracks so I decided to make a very thin outside line around the entire bill to close in the outside border design as well. If I were to make some minor changes to further strengthen my work I would give the background design a color tint to unite the varying colors together and possibly make a thin border around the president of Egypt. I hope you enjoyed my blog work. There will be more in the future!
