A Challenge To The Artists


PakMan

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Today, I'm going to propose you artists a challenge:

I'm compiling a collection of eBooks (PDF) about Armadillo MUP and I need a really cool cover to it.

I have made the following one for guidance:

If you think you can do better, go for it and take your time; I'm in no hurry.

If you have any questions, please, PM me.

Thanks,

PakMan

Looks cool ! but you forgot somthing!

"presented by Packman"

Also,

"presents" should not be that big ! make it small, or even remove it !

and ...

*/ "seek 'n destroy" shoul be at the whole top, make it stright with a medim font size.

*/ "armadillo unpacking manual" should be clear and big enough to be the second thing that takes the reader's attention, of course after the animal's image !

*/ "SND collection / Book 01" (some space) "presented by Pakman" : this should be at the whole bottom, with small font but very clear.

What do you think about this one? :)

Yeah, it's cool ;)

I might use it in one of the books but, remember I need to be able to edit the "Book 1" text... I have planned 6 books at least so, if there are enough covers, I will use a different one on each book.

Please, upload the original file so I can get it.

*EDIT*

@DarkDragon

Good tips. Why don't you try to make one cover yourself?

Glad you liked the idea! :) I redesigned it after Dragons suggestions, and wanted to add a real armadillo feeling, here is what i came up with:

Here is the photoshop source, experiment a bit with the colors if you want to.

P43, i like the idea with the "Chapter 1" in the corner! :D , have you inverted the colors? how does it look if you add some colors?

Here's something a little different....

You asked for a "book cover" well here it is:

If you like the idea, I can fix up the text so that it looks more like it's embossed into the leather (I had to finish it up quickly).

Yeah, it's nice and original but, I would prefer "BOOK 1" instead of "VOLUME 1" :)

...have you inverted the colors? how does it look if you add some colors?

I would like to see that too... ;)

Yes, I like the idea very much; Ok, try to work up the text a little more as you suggest and please, take your time because, I'm in no hurry ;)

Thanks guys, the artwork of yours is being even more cool than what I thought in my most optimistic expectations :thumbsup:

That one is interesting, I like the font. Ditch the pink...

why not use the old color scale for quality, since arm can be tough,how about silver or gold.

I like the font....

So do I.

Please, keep the purple! It's one of my favorite colors and fits just fine in this font format... :thumbsup:

So are you going to use it?

Yes, I will going to use it but, with a couple of very little changes.

There are enough books in the table for all the covers you artists are proposing; once I've decided which cover goes to which book and what changes I would like to see applied so all the covers will follow a certain pattern - or a certain identity if you prefer -, then, I'll contact the artists (PM) to discuss the details.

how are those books coming on?

They are coming slowly but inexorably :)

Being optimistic, I point this collection to be released late August, by the end of vacation.
