Here's what I managed to come up with: Saul, County Down with their soon-to-be post-indie ambient pop smash album "The Well-To-Do Peasants".
(back cover featured below)

Track titles and album title based on quotes from this page:
https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Peasant

Label name (Birksgate Music Group) was also a result of selecting a random Wikipedia article.
Original picture: https://www.flickr.com/photos/annedepoers/44869280224/
I chose RM as a featuring artist on one of the tracks mainly because I really like his recent album of his, "mono."
>>
And here's the back cover. I originally wanted to put "Executive Producer: Anomynous" on there as well but I just somehow forgot to. lol.

Might need to fix up the outlining on the copyright text but otherwise everything's all good.

the font / colours / image have potential to be a great looking cover. individual elements are nice but composition needs work. not bad for first try 7/10

>>346672
did you try to make this ugly on purpose? genuinely curious 2/10

>>346781
if you're going for a simple / minimal approach, the flaws in each individual element become even more apparent. horrible typography 2/10

>>347204
better than your first try but looks like a shitty OPN cover, also needs more negative space 3/10

>>347253
good concept, lukewarm execution, esp on the typography. also why is that logo not aligned 5/10

>>347809
not bad, could use some more type contrast between the top and bottom text, and that branch needs to either go off the canvas or have more margin 6/10

>>350219
meh but not horrible 5/10

>>353314
good textures and colour, but bad composition and type 5/10

>>352767
too much going on, but I like the type 6/10

>>352772
that texture hurts my eyes, text should either be the same size or more of a size difference 3/10

>>353171
interesting image but ruined with shitty type 2/10

I have literally no fucking clue what i'm doing. I'm normally a /p/hoto fag, who has been photographing for quite some time. Now a friend of mine asked me if i could design an album cover for one of his tracks. I guess he wants to uploade that one on youtube or something.

well the only thing i know was that the picture i used is good (i've taken that one) and that it has to be kinda red

What do? how does it look so far?
What should i change?
>inb4 everything
well i have as i mentioned no fucking clue of what i'm doing. I know shit about photography, but not graphic design

i have liked them all

You can start by making it square like an actual album cover.
