For this client, I was tasked with designing an album cover for a hip hop artist.
The client tasked me with incorporating three different elements; a pair of doves, a pocket watch, and roses, into the album artwork, while at the same time portraying an angelic or heaven-like realm. How I chose to achieve this was to first apply a cloudy background to portray the heaven-like realm. I would then use different stock images, and cut them out using various techniques in photoshop. Proceeding on to apply different blending modes in photoshop, to add a stylized effect to each element, aiding in the “transcended” feel. And lastly I used a gradient map to apply a psychedelic color scheme to make things a little more fun and high energy.
