Hey guys! I have an opinion question for all the graphics makers in here. There's a contest going on with my favourite band, to design a single cover, and I've decided to enter. After all, the worst that can happen is my design won't get picked, right? So my question is, which of these possibilities do you like better? Or is there anything on either that you would change?( click on the images for full sizeCollapse )
Oops! Maybe I should talk about the album a little, since that's kind of a major piece of information.
So the song is AFI's "A Deep Slow Panic", from the album Burials
(it was released October 22). A lot of their music, from 1999's Black Sails in the Sunset
deals with issues of self identity/identity crises, anger issues, lots of betrayal and loss and pain, and the music itself ranges from punk-rock to more layered, lush sounds, and some almost pop-punk-rock sounds. Burials
ITSELF deals largely in themes of personal darkness, betrayal, anxiety and anger; "A Deep Slow Panic" seems to be largely about someone who is unable to handle the chaos in their life and is slowly losing their grip. That's sort of why the first image has so much going on as the main focus, hehe.
