    Wasteland Themes Promo Covers

    Struś sent us the promotional cover arts for his postapocalyptic author music album. As usual, he's relying on your opinions to decide for the final version of the cover, so...



    Also, Piotr is advertising the album with the following blurb:
    Death, decay, destruction, deadly radiation, uncertainty, madness, downfall... Than and much more is what I felt upon entering one of the cities laying in this many miles wide, seemingly endless radioactive desert. Towering ruins around me, which once were a beautiful, brimming with life postindustrial city. People in a state no better than their city dwelled in the moribund streets. I'm not only talking about their physical stature, apparel, but mor about their withered psyche. Downcast, they filled the city, a part of this world, and an important note for me. Only I can hearken to music in this universe of torment... the music, which comprises this album.

    Promotional tracks from the upcoming album can be found here.

    Very, very exquisite. I strongly prefer the second though since the first one's power armor looks a bit too big and constricting. He looks more like a golem. Though as far as they go thats excellent.

    Sincerely,

    As said in the Polish news forum, I love the drawings but I'm not a big fan of the graphic editing/composition of the title and surrounding elements.

    "Pod patronatem" seems quite out of the place. It doesnt fit the rest.

    Speaking of post-apocalyptic music, here's an excerpt of what I'm doing for Ground Zero...

    Wish I could someday release an album with a beautiful cover myself...And as regards those two pictures, I prefer the second one.

    I've had this problem with Wasteland Themes covers before, the same problem Wooz mentioned, the fonts seem ill-chosen and badly out of place.

    Flaming letters shit went out in the 90's, y'know

    I might re-do the graphic editing of one of the pics tomorrow (uuuh, technically, today). Planning on similar to this, which I've posted at the Polish news forum.

    Btw, the first pic ... isnt it supposed to be advanced power armor without the mask ? Maybe thats why it looks so strange.

    Second one. Except for the lettering, but that has been said before.

    I don't like the lettering on that one, either, to be honest. Why not use an old typewriter font, I think that would work wonders.

    Not satisfied either. Mainly due to the 3D effect on it, also, the letters look too... "clean". I'll try other fonts, including an embossing tape one.

    However, a major set-back (near-collapse of my bathroom ceiling due to pipe burst) and the ensuing repairing of the pipes and thingamajigs along with school and other thing force me to postpone work on this until Wednesday.

    The two pictures are cool but the second one shows more precisely the wasteland spirit. A desert... A guy wearing a hat protecting him from the UV rays and smoking ....

    I'm here to chew bubble gum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubble gum
