Same here. As much as I'm impressed by your hard work (especially on a  
Sunday), I preferred Stefan's version of the letter. Now it has a  
marble texture instead of metal, so that it looks more like a statue  
or a grave than lead type. I also liked the small ink stains, and,  
like Alain, the uneven color of the letter top surface.

Also, compared with Stefan's version yours looks slightly "blurred". I  
liked the very precise small "slopes" (I don't know the technical  
word) along the edges of the block of metal, and they have been  
removed in your version.

Regarding the pen itself, given it's based on the photo of a real pen <http://www.montblanc.fr/products/black_resin_gold_stylo_plume_149.10575.php

Otherwise, it's customary on the Mac at least to add a pen or similar  
tool in application icons to indicate an application used to create  
documents. For example Pages, Apple's word processing application
