Meh, I'd be surprised if it wasn't okay; as long as everything ends up a texture, then all is well and good
Remember, I did the same thing with the rings on the saddlecloth for Patches; create a high poly torus, give it a shiny material, and rendered it out in the top view. In the end, it's just a texture on a flat surface, but it sure beats trying to paint it by hand! Who in their right mind is going to try to paint a perfect circle?
Anyway, thanks for the close-up of the bubbley liquid; looks good
