Here's the front cover for my recent INK 19 mixtape in full. Free download here! Or listen here. More info here.

The cover's comprised mainly of my Shredder piece from that same year's parallel Inktober art challenge: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/cyberdevil/inktober-13-shredder

I experimented with plenty of other angles and titles, and without, but in the end... this turned alright didn't it? Not too much. Not too little. Not too clean. Not too messy. Inky in moderation.

The symbolism's a cover, and I'm tearing it away. You could say I'm 'shredding' light on the situation. What situation? Of me; the world; all things. All situations relevant to whatever the time of recording's purporting.

Or tearing away my facade. Open as day.

Or tearing away the darkness. Sparks in the shade.

Dec 21. The day it officially turns, and brighter days come again. Maybe you can finally see at least a little sliver... of redemption. Dare I mention.

Creatures of light. All of use. Go life.

Incredible! An hour of recording / song! I will listen to the whole while creating an animation :P It will be nice working :)

Cyberdevil responds:

Interesting to see how the background music might sway the story itself! :P Thanks man!

Oh man, this is really nice. I could see this on a poster or shirt or something.

Cyberdevil responds:

#INK19MERCH! That'd be awesome :)

The final cover turned out great! Well done on the mixtape release and putting this together. I think you got the best ballance between all those draft covers you sent in the end too :) This one's the best so far!

Cyberdevil responds:

Glad you think so too! Finally felt like everything fell into place when I tried this, both style and placement, usually it feels like text is the easy part of a cover but somehow just didn't feel right with this one, or with anything I tried in that seemingly so suitable empty upper left area.

Thanks for reviewing; thanks again!
