Welcome Lonepine, you’ve found the right place for knowable advice, and helpful design critique and suggestions ”not from me as I’m very green haha” but for a first knife I’d say its a very good start. Since you’ve completed this project already there’s little that can be suggested that wont seem negative…”lack of responses” I’d recommend if you have a next canvas in mind, maybe the same knife , try posting your design / layout on here and the help will come pouring in, after taking it all in refine your design “take your time“ and post the improvements and let the highly skilled eyes of these experienced gentlemen hone your design to something that could possibly have taken years to achieve in solitary. Good luck this is a very satisfying endeavor to undertake, If it was a road I believe there isn’t really an ending but its not the destination but the journey that drives us forward. Hope you have a wonderful day. BB.

for a first outta the gate, not too shabby. i'd practice drawing spines in odd spaces to improve the design process. the central spine on the left side is a bit squashed . the spines if off, will hijack anything you do after they have been cut.you cutting looks ok to me, just a bit of pencil work is needed. practice and prevail leads one to much higer degree of success.
