You seem to have pointed things out yourself. :P
Maybe you should have made him grey? Or maybe white even. I was expecting to see some really badass smoke screen from that cigarette for some reason. I don't know why.
Yeah, I'm a bit disappointed with the composition, but whatcha gonna do, eh?
I think his outstretched leg is much longer then then the other leg in a 90 degree angel. I measured, and it's the "thigh" that is shorter on the 90 degree leg. But I am just being nitpicking and want to say something constructive. I don't care if you ain't perfect :P
Hehe, thanks for finding that out for me. The legs do seem a bit off, don't they? Oh well. I never want to touch this picture again!
I really like that watch. At first I thought it was a design of The Rabbit's watch in Wonderland. But then I saw it was a CD design. It looks very empty with all the black, but I assume the actually CD has text on it.
The CD has text on it, but not on that portion. The negative space is intended.
The Fringe Shift cup - It is very hard to see what it is in the background. At first I thought it was sitting on a pole outdoors or something. And since that made no sense to me it was a bit confusing. I also find the blurry background distracting. I do like the texture and shape of the mug. And the style of Fringe Shift.
The background is the original photo of the coffee cup on a table, but extremely blurred. I suppose it is a bit distracting, but I wasn't too sure what else to use instead.
Maybe I should look that band up ...
You could! I designed their website a while back. Although, they are fairly inactive right now as they do not have a drummer.
That water usage measurement is simple but good. Maybe I would have added some air bubbles to make it less boring. Maybe you should have drawn them in different kind of glasses and the USA as a tanker. But then again, you are working with differently shaped glass of water.
Yeah, we were on a fairly limited time budget, but I think it's nice to have them all be the same sort of glass just so it is a more clear comparison between the two glasses rather than 2 different glasses entirely. I like your idea though.
I have always been a fan of your work. :B
D'aww :3 Thanks Lark!
Keep it up Spagh! Beat that art block! Beat it to the ground!!
Haha, thanks! I don't think I'm in too much of a block, why, do I seem like I am?

I like this. It's very clean and very neat.
Also, I like the fact how it's mostly black. Some albums can't pull off a look of being mostly empty space, but in this case, it works well; no text, just empty space.
Yay! I'm glad you like it too. Those are the parts I like about it too. Also keep in mind this isn't the actual cover, it's the little insert that goes on the inside of the cover. But yeah! Sweet action.
Now that I've replied to all of you lovely folk, I can share with you my newest creation. I made it with REAL LIVE PAINT and stuff. Exciting, yes? After I finished painting it (this is what I presented to my class), I opened it up in Photoshop and messed around with my original reference photo, merged 'em a bit (for texture/lighting), and ended up with this!
We were supposed to create our own style based off of inspiration from other artists' methods. I was going to originally add in more significant photo elements to create a contrast between paint/photo, but I didn't have the resources. One artist who does really cool 'paint in the middle of photo' things is Maksimov Dmitry, I like his style a lot.
