Hmm, we seem to have had similar ideas about the dA logo being munched. That shouldn't be a problem (not for me at least) unless the jury thinks otherwise ... Here's my submission if you want to take a look at it: [link]
Still, you did a great job with your little monster. As for tips - I notice there's something weird about the logo ... the ending of the "A" seems way too close to the upper curve. I wouldn't touch anything else though.
