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 😀
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…
Check out ORKA:
This is my favorite song from the album:
