This week's challenge is a combined idea from challenge winner Lackey and countach.
Remake or re-envision an existing Album Cover in pixelart.

JUST THE COVER
(first silly question goes to skamocore )
(second silly question goes to 7even )

(first whiny comment goes to skeddles )



Canvas Size: 100x100minimum , 200x200maximum
Colors: 64 maximum
Animation: no
Transparency: No, as all the square canvas must be used.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

"candycanes and gravity" sounds like a collab song between paris hilton and slipknot."

*must everything be about YOU?

its sound more like the result of a drunk random name generator...

Some of those Bad album covers really had me LOL'ing. Thanks for posting that. :)

Not really.                  

user
skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 3/11/2008 13:46
Because you always say something odd and then are like "That sounds like a band name." Like "CANDYCANES AND GRAVITY". That's just awesome.

Yes, what's dull about re-envisioning?

user
Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 3/11/2008 05:24
Dull? You can choose Pink Floyd! PINK FLOYD.
There's so many possibilities man. Why would you need to make your own band? There's more then enough bands to choose from.

Hmm, shall I do Iron Maiden's number of the beast? :D

user
skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 3/10/2008 14:23
No offence, but this is kinda dull. You should have to come up with a name for a band of your own and then design a cover.

Oh well, maybe another week.

I'll prolly do an ICP album.

(second silly question goes to 7even )

I saw that coming XP

user
7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/10/2008 12:16
Does this include Movie/Game Soundtracks as well, right?

user

Awesome :D.. PF rocks.

user
Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 3/10/2008 11:27
Funny, just listening to PF while reading this :)

RE-MEMBER it says RE-MAKE or RE-ENVISION!  NOT TRACE!!!

And someone please REENVISION one of these horrid album covers. 


user
tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 3/10/2008 10:25
i only hope this will not mount into the kind of tracing orgy that we had with the cutscene-challenge

user
Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 3/10/2008 06:50
We did this in art class awhile ago

user
FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 3/10/2008 06:28
Aw crap! I should have waited before submitting this months ago, just in case someone ends up making a cover art challenge!

Ah well, it wouldn't qualify anyways.

Man, I was hoping to get FSQ for this one. Is there a 'silliest question' prize?

user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 3/10/2008 04:49
Yays :D

Skamocore: 1
jalonso: 0

I have a feeling that if I get the time I'm going to enter this as many times as possible

So has Mr Pharand already won this ?

anyway what does "You may create the inside sleeves and even the back cover but only the Cover is required." mean...are we supposed to recreate the inside sleeves and back cover and keep this all within a 200x200 canvas?

If so why not allow transparency so we can space out the different elements within the canvas instead of having an arbitrary background colour separating the cover, back cover and sleeves
