Art Battle - Design an album cover

Postby 904 on Fri Apr 03, 2009 11:13 am

We've been doing map battles for a few years now and RawMeat3000 has recently (re-)started organising modeling battles. But there are plenty of Interlopers out there that have other skills or ambitions. I think it's time to go ahead and do this:

Design an album cover for an imaginary band.


The goal is to design an album cover for an imaginary band, you can take any type of music or band you like. Also the theme for the cover is entirely up to you. And of course cover art for a future release of 'The Interlopers' is highly appreciated :D

Some basic rules apply:
- it should be square. Don't make it too big (I'd say 1024x1024 would be nice)
- you can use any skill you want, so even for mappers or modelers there's an opportunity to enter.
- clearly, postprocessing is allowed, if not mandatory ;) (just to clarify for mappers/modelers)
- the frontside is mandatory
- the back of the album is optional.
- post plenty of work in progress shots
- no need to mark as wip or final, I will take your last posted shot(s) as your submission.
- please do not use profanity, nudity, stuff like that, you get the idea.

Update: I've shortened the duration to a week:
The battle will run for about a week and ends saturday the 11th of April UTC at midnight. Check here to see the conversion to your own timezone.

I hope you all like this and I know I'm looking forward to your entries. If this battle is a success, we'll definitely do more battles like this.

Good luck!

Since this is the first time for this kind of battle, the rules are a bit rough around the edges. If you have ideas, suggestions or questions PM me.

Once this battle ends, a new regular map-battle will be started.

I'll join in I think, I always enjoy a rummage through Photoshop and it would be good to have a focus. I'm regretting not bringing my tablet back home with me over Easter now though...

I think a traditional art battle would be good, drawing maybe, like pencil and paper.

This sounds like fun. I'll get to work on something.

But one week would be better. 2 days seems too short, it wouldn't get enough entries.
