So I finally pulled something together so I could have a second song! Right now I think it's kinda short. I'm thinking of adding a bit more to make it at least 3:30 - 3:40 to make it seem complete. Let me know what you think! It's along the same style as I Die
I love it much more than I Die, and I loved the way that gave me shivers. The samples work much better in this track than I Die, too. Awesome.
In other news, I figured I'd finally throw something together for album, and if people like it, I may take it further, or assign it to someone with better graphic art skills than moi.
It's pretty much all interchangable, the background, the window view, the font, the text, it was just a framework for improvements. Tell me what you think, and I might be able to improve my (lousy) photoshop skills in the process.
Here's some blurb:
1. The dark background texture is stolen directly from the new band website. If someone could direct me to a less plagiarised style of texture, that would be lovely, or even instructions to make my own, that would be awesome.
2. The "window" view, the Northern Lights is a picture taken in Lulea, Sweden, where the band are from. Again, it's not mine, and some other Lulea themed photos that I can have for free legally would be awesome. For those who like imagery, how about this: The Northern Lights are freaky - they are a phenomenon. Little Freaks? Freaky lights? Um...
3. Fonts I salvaged after a few quick Google searches. Even if they are not when people want for the cover, I'm glad I found them, because I like them
4. I might make a back cover for the project, including a tracklisting, if you guys give thumbs up for the front cover.
Finally, as I said, all the artwork, fonts etc. are interchangeable, so if you want some of you drawings or whatever on here, I'm sure if people agree to it, it can be arranged...
EDIT: I forgot to stick a "Volume 1" subtitle in there. It should probably replace the "AD, SA, TM & More" subtitle I had there as a placeholder. Also, if we do make a Volume 2, then the main design of the cover could remain the same, with different images in the window?
EDIT 2: Continuing with my "I MUST IMPROVE" streak on Photoshop, I got a load of brushes and tips on how to make some textures, and keeping that in mind, I made a few things:
<-- Darker version of 1, more suited for a background.
The third is currently my wallpaper
