Album Art
« on: September 12, 2007, 10:25:00 am »
As you may or may not know I have been extremely busy lately working on an album to be recorded in October.  Unfortunately, we still don't have most of our lyrics written and a few songs are incomplete (which is very time consuming).  Currently I am collecting album art for the inside of the booklet (front and back covers are complete), please help me out.  I'm looking for somewhat professional looking images which can have text over them (without hindering readability).  I'm excepting anything as long as it's somewhat good.  I'm especially hoping for at least one 3d render.  The images must be in a somewhat high resolution and the x and y dimensions must be equal.

Please help, I'd hate to have to postpone production for this.

Could you explain what you are looking for, what type of look? Also, if you have some images of the members or a link to some music?

I'm looking for whatever kind of image you throw my way.  I'm really hoping for the booklet to be as much an art as the music.  Unfortunately I can't seem to find a picture of the full band, and we have yet to record anything (I'll describe my music to you as keyboard driven funk prog rock).

i would post a small sample of a song even if not finished, often with music we can get inspired more into making a cover that fits it
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I would to, if I had one.  We are not recording the songs until mid-october (when we have an appointment for a full day to do so)

hmm kalan vod actually has a whole lotta pics on his site, i wonder if he would be glad to hand one to you? They're kinda psychedelic though so idk if it would fit your style ;)wink.gif you would just need to ask him, else I think weregoose is kinda good in abstract pics as well (saw some of his stuff on deviantart)

We do a lot of psychedelic stuff actually, if he would donate (maybe) one of those images to me I'd be forever in his debt.  They are really good.

Would you mind if I used four of those?  I'd put a link to your site in the book and give you proper credits.  I still need some more (including a lot of very simple ones that I can easily put text over).

 Sure, sounds great. Tell me which ones you are using, I might be able to make something that you might like even more.

Yes, the first two are newer (mayish?). I have them in order of newest to oldest :Ptongue.gif, might work on something new though.

I've got a little bit that might fit the bill...
Perhaps you can use this?
