One of the things I like the most is the music, specially Rock and Metal. One of the subgenres that has always caught my attention is Doom Metal, its imagery and style. That's why I decided to come up with a concept for a Doom Metal band. The name chosen is "Luscofusco" which in Galician means "Twilight" and the "Hour of the Witch". Therefore, the band would be based in Galicia. Here's a description I've created: Luscofusco is a three man Doom Metal band from Ourense, Galicia. The band is known for their lyrics inspired by the Galician mythology, the "Meigas" (local witches) and the secrets of the forest. The band takes inspiration from original Doom bands, such as Black Sabbath, Pentagram and Candlemass, as well as modern bands, like Sunn O))). The band logo was created by editing the font Pentgram by Alex Lang, which is inspired by bands like Pentagram and Kvelertak: I also created a concept for an album cover, using the typical dark imagery from Doom and Black Metal: The title chosen is "Unha Morte Baixo O Luar" (A Death Under The Moonlight). What do you think? C&C appreciated!
Unlike the other semi-related threads, this one isn't about the quality of the album itself. Heck, it's not about the quality of the artwork either so much as your enjoyment of said artwork. Here are some of my faves, with more to come in time. A lot of my favorite album artwork comes from Beach Boys albums, which isn't surprising given that they're one of my all-time favorite bands. For this post I'll only do Beach Boys albums, with other bands' albums to come in the future: "Carl and the Passions - 'So Tough'" (1972) "Friends" (1968) Artwork on this one is a lot more psychedelic than the music. "Sunflower" (1970) This one may be an unpopular pick art-wise but I love it - the guys with their kids. There are lots more great photos on the inside too. Incidentally, this is probably my second-favorite Beach Boys album behind "Pet Sounds." "Keepin' the Summer Alive" (1980) Bad album, good artwork. I should add this to that thread too. "The Beach Boys" (1985) Very, very '80s, in a not-bad way. The artwork on this is much like the harmonies on this: realistic, but still weirdly synthetic (in this case it was a painting; in the latter, who knows, but the backing vocals sound weird throughout this whole album). "That's Why God Made the Radio" (2012) I've liked this artwork since the album first came out...though not as much as the artwork on the compilation released the same year: "50 Big Ones" (comp., 2012): Yes, a bit gimmicky, but full of color, plus it has the band's iconic logo, which is always a nice thing to have. "Sounds of Summer" (comp., 2003): Classic artwork for a classic compilation. I'll probably add a couple more BBs albums to this thread but there will be a bunch from other artists in the near future. For now, I'm going to bed. I'd love to see some of your picks tomorrow!
So I saw this on deviant art: Vinyl Record Icons and started searching the web for tutorials, and found a couple, but neither explained very well what to do. So I decided to create my own. It's taken about a week and a half, maybe two to get it to where I felt like I can share. As for the process - I started writing down the steps I used, but ended up changing things and getting fairly detailed. However the basics of this are pretty simple: Create a circle, new layer fill with noise, radial blur, adjust noise layer's mode, reduce opacity. The following get a little more in-depth, with adding lighting, shadow, outline, center label, etc. Maybe once I clean up my original file, I'll create a psd and release it, and if I can remember all the steps I might be able to add a tutorial. Anyway, enough delay. Here is the finished result: 1st: (500x500px) With paper-style label, and text. 2nd: (1200x1200px) Original File Size. Paper-style label with border, but no text. C&C appreciated, but not sure how much more I'll mess with these.
It's funny seeing sports teams in music video's either signing or dancing. So I thought I would start a thread. Only post music video's that have a sports team in it, they can either be singing or just in the video. So here's FSU's 1988 classic "The Seminole Rap"
