So Aldrine drew this thing he wants to use as the next CD cover. I don't like it. He likes it. Please vote to settle this.

Question: Is it gonna looke exactly like that?

It would be cooler if it were the chibi you guys had from the last album. I think that would look pretty badass!

It would look neat on the back of an album along with the track listing. For the front, it's gotta be as epic as Suite 409. ;)

In that case, Aldrine should rush it into production while Rayan frantically tries to find and destroy every copy in existence.

I'd rather have someone else design it.

02-18-2009, 04:25 PM

I agree. I guess we're taking the middleground, but I'm kinda of leaning towards Ryan's side. But I'm still not completely sure. I need more incentive. How about you?

Yeah, I think seeing other designs would be fun, and maybe they would snowball into a univeral idea that everyone is happy with. :)

Sorry Aldrine. I have to agree with Rayan on this one... I would totaly rock it on a T though...

I can't even tell you guys my idea because Aldrine said it would sway the voting to heavily in my favor.

MisoHappy
02-18-2009, 04:32 PM
What can't Aldrine do?!
I think it's pretty funny how hard a decision "yes or "no" is. I mean you guys both are both right. Supposedly, Ryan thinks it's too childish, or unprofessional maybe? Presentation is important, but so is originality. I don't think many other people will sacrifice the looks of the CD for something that you drew especially for it, knowing that people might not like it (RYAN) and thus forward, people will judge it by only the cover

I say YES. Stand proud.

*EDIT* on second thought, I'll have to think on it too

experimentjon
02-18-2009, 04:35 PM
Ooooh. Gonna have to take sides with Rayan on this one.

If you're goign to go with black and white, I much prefer this quick rendering that I did. If you use my idea, I'll take a free CD and an Island Music Network shirt in Large. Haha. (I'm sure you've thought of this before anyway, but I like it.)

I believe the album is going to be called Eat Sleep Music because while Aldrine and Ryan were down in Hawaii recording with Danyo, that's pretty much all they did: eat, sleep, and music.

02-18-2009, 04:41 PM
I'm gonna have to side with Ryan too. That only means that you'll have to use it for something else ;)

I like this one better (except for the text). Except maybe try color (green for eat, red for sleep, full color for music with a rainbow of notes coming out of the box).

Are those 3 mini Sir Chunks-A-lots?! If so i say just suit that bad boy up in his gear throw a uke in his hand instead of that sword and make a sweet sir chunks-a-lot title lol idk. I think everyone would agree Sir Chunks-A-Lot is awesome haha Sir Chunks-A-Lot and the Holy Uke.

khrome
02-18-2009, 05:01 PM
I don't know if I agree with making it a contest. It's their band, their music, and I'm sure they all have a personal attachment to what they think the cover should look like. I think the idea should come from them, and maybe refined later by a graphic artist. I think the band members should all have a chance to show their concept but so far we only know Aldrine's concept. ;)

its nice, but it would be hard to distinguish from the other album cover of course the subject matter is different, but the balck and white drawing element is the same.

maybe go for the same drawing but scan it in mess with it in a computer so its white drawing on brown, or brown drawing on sandy sort of color - something like that. lots of color options, but you can still do something simple.

Personally, I would have moved the text a bit more to the right. But that's just me. Haha! :)

Simplicity and use of white space FTW.

Either that, or just plaster an attractive woman over the entire front. I can live with that too.

I like that, I'd put in green gold red :D

apart from that, I'd take Aldrine's sketch (same colors as above^^) on the back of a CD and the Sir chunks-a-lot on the front. But I'd go for it as t-shirt too...

btw, I voted yes...

Use a similar sketch but add another figure listening to the playing in the first two boxes and then playing along in the last box, instead of sleeping. Oh and no boxes, use overlapping circles that are colored where the circles overlap.

I voted a throaty NO.

As a personal preference, it would be great if you guys went to the gym for a few months, then get half naked with torn jeans holding big glimmering swords and strike an aggressive pose on top of a pile of battle remains on a background of thunder and lightning.

Ah, the Manowar "Kings of Metal" album covered that already. Never mind, great pic Aldrine! :rock:

I really can't vote either way. It really depends on what the other options would be. I can imagine far worse CD covers, as well as better covers.

But for the artist (musically) to do the album art also seems pretty cool.
