Looking for Album Cover artist

Recommended Posts

Looking for a hobby artist (or anyone who would just be willing to accept credit as payment and work for funsies) who would be interested in creating cover art for my 

upcoming multi-genre concept album dubbed "Dorian's Enigma", a story about a little girl who confronts the trauma experienced during the murder of her parents in her dreams. 

This is a passion project of mine that I have been working on for the last two-three months.

If you are interested in the idea and would love help, feel free to PM me or reply to this thread. 

I set a deadline for the project to be released on December 15th of this year, so we should have plenty of time to create something awesome!

I am excited and looking forward to working with you, thank you! 

Here are some sneak peaks of the album (no song is finalized and I know for a fact that I will be rearranging one of those songs):

I will be sending you much more of the project once you reply  and we work things out :D

I've got some unused cover art resources you could use if you like. Do be aware, though, that there's only so much work that can be done "for funsies" on something like that before it stops being fun, and the proper procedure for something like that is to provide more substantial reward for more substantial work on that end. For free, you take what you can get.

If you'd like to try something like that, gimme a holla here and I can send them along.

@Meteo Xavier

First of all, thanks for the response

Yes, I'm aware that I won't get top quality art.. After all, you get what you pay for. I stated that I was looking for a hobby artist, as in someone who's either just starting out (like me and my music) or someone who isn't necessarily professional. I just need something decent and that can distinct my album from the rest. Out of curiosity, what is the typical, (I guess your) rate for an album cover? I'm also interested to see what you have to offer, send 'em along!

Thanks!

I'm not a professional graphic artist by trade, in fact graphic art is the one art I've never really gotten any kind of handle on. That said, I've done a majority of my own media artwork for albums, books and some miscellaneous stuff as I did develop some skill at artwork editing in GIMP and assorted free photo stuff online.

Hopefully this should be a good starting set.
