Not 100% sure that I'm following the design (your paint job doesn't have a lot of contrast in it) but if I'm seeing what I think I'm seeing....

Excellent choice of materials.

Good craftsmanship.

Crappy design.

But hey, it's a first design and it's a lot easier to bring your skill as a designer up to par than it is to bring up your craftsmanship skills or materials budget.

In sum: Nice first attempt.

You must've spent a fortune on all that brass! Why would you paint it? Brass looks sick! Damage please!
