I am sketching an icon to accompany a logo for Keystone. Looking for some feedback on this direction.
Additionally, I can't decide between the left side style of stones, vs right side (more vs fewer). Let me know your opinions please. Thanks

Right side seems cleaner.
Looks incredible to me.
What about keeping both?
@Oscar Marcelo You mean keep it as is? Or how do you mean keep both?
I mean to keep as is. With the both sides in the same icon.
Do you see some deeper meaning / symbolism in keeping both that I'm missing? Or you just like how it looks?
I think more stones (left) will put a lot more focus on the keystone, which could be good if that's an important part of the branding. Fewer stones (right), is much cleaner though, think I prefer that. Looks really nice!
Using only the left side seems to get too detailed. Using only the right side seems to be in lack of details. The asymmetry fits very well here, and gives the perfect imperfection to the icon, since Beauty is in Imperfection. :)
Can't wait to see this finished :)

I'd keep both sides exactly as they are. A bit of asymmetry is a great thing to have.
@Alex Pankratov I think you're right the asymmetry gives it something unique. But I like what @Sam McQueen said about more stones putting more focus on the Keystone. So as of right now I'm thinking that's the direction I'm going to take it, but will also add in some imperfections. Like @Oscar Marcelo said, there is beauty in imperfection :)
I love the asymmetry - sort of Brave-esque - but I'm not sure it reinforces any brand attributes. The left side puts more focus on the keystone, so that gets my vote.
If this needs to work at multiple sizes, you could always use the left for larger sizes and the right for smaller.
Great Idea @Jordan Koschei I'll try that out at different sizes and see how it looks.
