Ok, so here's the deal fellow deviants.
I play drums in this progressive metal band I'm in called The Antitype and we're close to having our first EP finished
and I NEED cover artwork for the CD inserts and just for general distribution with the album, and seeing as i'm not very skilled in graphic art, that's where you come in.

Basically for whoever submits the most suitable artwork I'm going to GIVE AWAY FOR FREE one of my custom mask of their choice off my etsy shop here --> www.etsy.com/shop/Twohornsunit…
in exchange for artwork to use and distribute for this album.
To get a feel for our sound and imagery (the blue logo we want included on the front of the CD, the "A" cogwheel on the back) you can check out my band's facebook page here --> www.facebook.com/TheAntitype
Our album will be titled "Convergence"
We're going for something slightly dark, but not evil.
Think like a merging of technology with organics. A very cyberpunk type future.
It can be photography, digital art, or a painting as long as it fits and the resolution is good.
Also it doesn't have to be a completely new piece for the album. If you have existing artwork you think would be suitable please feel free as long as you don't mind our band name being somewhere on the piece.

In addition to getting a free mask and having your art featured on our album, you'll also be credited on the actual album too :)

UPDATE: Deadline for it should be within the next 3 weeks. Also! second place will get a choice of a free pokemon mask or pokemon goggles and have their artwork featured on the Inner CD inserts. :)

Hope to hear some responses guys!

- Brian

Aw, wish I had bumped into your page earlier. I'd totally try it. Those masks are really awesome.

thank you very much!
and if you do, please do it within the next 2 weeks. our EP is actually done and we're just giving it a couple weeks before we release it to give some artists enough time so we can have some good choices. :)

alright so! Me and my band have chosen your artwork as the winner! you can select any of the masks or goggles i have on my etsy page and just provide me your address via note and i'll ship it to you :)

1 question though: Would you mind if we altered the hues and possible applied a few filters to the piece? We're going to be releasing 2 versions of the EP. one instrumental and one with vocals, so a color variation between the two will be in order.

Thanks again so much!

we'll be deciding who'll be on the cover in about 2 weeks or so, maybe less.

I'll be showing this to the rest of the band today :)

Do we need to design a logo for "Convergence" or just "The Antitype" on the cover?
Reply
:icontwohornsunited:
TwoHornsUnited Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yeah we need the album title on the cover too.
also the blue antitype logo we have on our page needs to be redrawn with the album artwork instead being poorly shopped on there like a lot of people have been doing lately. just thought i'd throw that out there. but you said you don't use it so it's all good xD nvm.

if you need to, look up some metal album covers for reference on how the layout should generally fit to look professional.

Also, when you mean Cyberpunk, are you thinking H.R. Giger? Or too dark?

Ahhh, a more modern polished mechanical style LOL I was thinking the androids from Star Wars, those skinny things XDD

:icontwohornsunited:
TwoHornsUnited Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
exactly. polished armor that looks somewhat organic, but black cables everywhere and glowing energy in certain spots to give a nice contrast.
An odd Convergence of organics with technology. Human minds and assets, but with no longer human bodies with conventionally mortal limitations.

What will the concept or name of the album be? (To get an idea for what to depict on the cover)

The album title is called "Convergence" :)

ALSO. I'm thinking of having the same color scheme as that picture (white armor plating, black wires, blue lights) but with the same general Face for the featured character as the photo i have on here called "glitch"

RAMENmanga-ka Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Student Filmographer
So, you'd like a mascot, like Iron Maiden's "Eddie"

The mecha lady you linked me to, you'd like her in the cover or something similar?
Reply
:icontwohornsunited:
TwoHornsUnited Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
not exactly a lady, but a figure , yes. I guess you could say a mascot, in a way.
no human facial features though, which is why i mentioned the "glitch" photo. doesn't have to be a full body in the picture though, just want most of the face and some the body visible. he can be connected to some kind of frame by cables and wires too, with some kind of cyber-ish background.

RAMENmanga-ka Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Student Filmographer
Ahhh k. i got you :)

may i include more than one figure? Or just Glitch?

:icontwohornsunited:
TwoHornsUnited Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Probably be better to have only one figure. keep in mind this is gonna be going on a 5x5 traditional CD case, so way too much going on wouldn't be ideal in my opinion.

Must I include the band logo in the piece, or can I just submit to you the art and leave the logo inclusion to you guys? (Lettering isn't my forté)

:icontwohornsunited:
TwoHornsUnited Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
We just need the blue (doesn't exactly have to be blue) glow logo featured on our facebook page on the front like near the top and big enough to be readable, but intertwined with what's going on around it (by like wires, tubes...etc), and the back insert will have the "A" cogwheel logo presumably hooked up to a bunch of cables next to the track listings.

Ok, sounds good :)

I'll have to do it traditionally, I don't have photoshop nor can I use it XDD

So, I need to design the back cover too? Or is that going to be handled by someone else?
Reply
:icontwohornsunited:
TwoHornsUnited Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
It's optional. Even if you design something suitable for just the back and we use it i'll be giving away something for it :)
