sorry for the double post CA/Sijun. i'm looking for feedbacks and i'm too lazy to do something else than a basic cut-n-paste...
this is a vynil cover design for the new Audiomicid ep (turntablist crew).
these tracks mix electro sounds (keyboards and samples) and scratches.
so it's not supposed to look like a 'basic' hiphop/turntablist record.
they liked this pic
so they asked me do design something for them. no real constraints, freestyle session.
their older covers were based on graffitis and looked 'underground', they wanted a more 'graphic' look for this one. some kind of futuristic look with a 'pro' feeling.
i thought of doing some kind of cyber-technics deck mixed with a syringe/needle, the first sketch looked like this : (about 20mns)
they liked the overall machine design but didn't want an obvious reference to turntablism, so i tweaked the left part a little bit and started to work on the final composition with the typos.
rightnow, we basically agreed on the layout displayed above (kind of fun step since they are 7 and it's always a challenge to find a way through so many comments and crits).
so basically, it's done. next step will be to finish the design of the machine, add details, work on the typos.
i'll post these here.
now, crits and comments are more than welcome. overpaints, cut'n paste, whatever you feel like could be a good input.
the deadline is the end of this month, so there's still time to modify things.
some other work steps :
* the typos are not def
mmmm-yummy work hpx
personally i like the middle piece with black BG from 1st post
its more suggestive and has more energy --its more abstract too which i think is a great direction to go for illustrating music
i prefer that over the more representational designs with white bg--although they are succesful graphically--but theyre too static too describe the music you describe IMO

Damn, these are sick! In a good way of course! I like the last one the best. :thumbsup:
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
you did great job on all your pics....the one i prefer is the pic with black baground...
Thank you for posting your steps and endavor on the project. Very informative ! :chug:
Thats looking really sweet.. Great composition and design, however I think some " kick" lights on the lower black half of the machine would be great.. Perhaps some mixture of a greyed out saturated dark green to complement those read streaks you got going.. a highlight for your dark planes.. if you will..
I'd do an overpaint .. but i got to head to class...
i'll come back later this evening and do one if i can..
Nice stuff man.. I really like your DSG sketches too..
What really makes me go 'wow' is how you used a style found in web and graphic design and made it 'organic' by painting. Stuff like that is usually defined by hard shapes and complex geometry generated by a 3d program, but you got that same feel with brush strokes.
That's really cool.
This is most evident in the 'hpx design unit' piece.
fuck !!!!!!!! i am in love with your designs.
There really strong.
