Designing ORKA album cover

A while ago I was asked to design a logo AND an album cover for a metal band called ORKA. I was so happy, cause the guys said I could do whatever I wanted to do 😀

Acrylic painting

I was just getting more relaxed with my brushes and acrylic paint, so I decided to paint something with a theme “Whispers of a hidden fear” (that is the album title). Since I have a scanner, I figured out I could do some digital changes in gimp and make it look ok. You can see the progress video I made here:

What I learned

I absolutely loved painting “Whispers of a hidden fear”, but I guess, if an opportunity presents itself again, I would do the whole thing digitally. Scanned painting is not as nearly as pretty as the original…

You can get prints of this painting in my REDBUBBLE and ZAZZLE shops, it looks pretty cool!
