I really like the look of that, however, from this image it is difficult to see the defined outline of the crusader badge. I would make the outline of it a bit darker - unless its the image washing it out.
dunno why the outline got so light. in reality, with natural light, it is plain black so it doesn't stand out. maybe the problem is that when i made it, paint was very thinned down and this may be why it reflects light in a different way than the rest.
