The colors are pleasing and the symmetry is nice but I think it's missing something
>>356883
Pretty basic, reminds me of something from the early 2010s
>>357067
Nice, would have liked to see what you did with some text
>>357126
Don't love this one, I think it's way too busy
>>357389
I think the font is a bit distracting, it looks rushed
>>357402
Cool but the colors don't work too well
>>357403
Very creative, really like this
>>357430
Pretty nice, reminds me of industrial music, looks good in the jewel case too
>>357443
The image itself is my favorite so far, but the text is really lacking
>>357444
Nice, good balance of color, it's busy but I think it works

The image of the house would work better by itself. The flat background with black text doesn't look like its part of the cover.
>>356883
theres something about the grain that doesn't work. cant put my finger on it.
>>357067
I like the style but the subject is too simple/generic. Maybe different type of stairs or another interesting angle. You have a good concept but need to push it further.
>>357402
Like the other anon said, the colours aren't quite right. They hurt to look at. Try turning down the saturation to something softer. Experiment with other hues.
>>357459
Looks like some 90s techno mix. I like this.

Could you post a version with the lightning blurred and the background in focus? I'm curious to see the difference.

trying to give constructive crit to you guys because these threads on /mu/ back in the day are how i got my start with gd.

>>360915
cool concept, but your separate visual elements have no balance. make the moons more of a focal point, use a simpler typeface, and lose the shitty gradient texture. I could see this shaping into something good, but right now it's far from that point.
>>360955
this is a good start. that font is dated, but not horrible. try matching the stroke of the circle with the font's line weight. the title and band name are feeling super disconnected and would be better if they were together, maybe the circle should be larger. like the size of a record inside the sleeve.
>>361103
this looks pretty good. the fonts don't work together but that's about it.
>>361259
way too much going on. choose one effect and run with that, the title effect is not working at all and should either be a focal point or nothing at all.
>>361336
This is a good start too, choose a different but similar font with a shorter cap height for the title and it'd be a lot better.
>>
>>361106
what's that font
>>
>>357585
Why? You could do that in about 2 hours in Photoshop and Illustrator.
>>
>>361552
pretty sure its cooper std or a variation of it
>>
>>361554
It's just a meme. In reality it took about 30 minutes and I did it on my lunchbreak.>>359509
>Could you post a version with the lightning blurred and the background in focus? I'm curious to see the difference.
Can't I'm afraid. I dumped all the original files after I was finished with it. Didn't expect I'd be needing them again as it wasn't a serious project.
