Hey guys! Let's continue discussing here the art cover that will represent the track that we are creating together in the GMC new hit threads!

This is the original thread: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...mp;#entry630012

This is the last post by Vonhotch - the art designer

You had mentioned these things right before everbody went off the rails of the Daisy train. laugh.gif And I really liked this first picture. Is this still the direction everyone wants to take? If there are other things that people want to have included that represent them or their country, They can list them and I can try to take everything and make one idea out of it. Usually when I am designing something for someone they give me a bunch of ideas so I can get a feel for what they like and what kind of direction they want to go in, and how much artistic liberty I can take. wink.gif So if anybody else wants to do just like you did Gab that helps a lot, and then I can come up with some ideas or even start rough sketching a couple and you guys can pick. When I first read your post. The first thing that popped into my head was something like King Kong. A big painted ape character holding a guitar hanging off Obelisco, with maybe a GMC shirt on or some planes flying around him like in the movie and one has a GMC banner behind it, or somehow incorporate things that represent all of us into the planes. No one commented on that idea even to tell me it was the worst idea ever, so I didn't know if you guys missed it. So anyway the more ideas that are thrown out there the better idea I can get of what everybody is thinking. The way Gab did it is perfect a picture and a couple things to include.

And I have to say I am very honored to get to do this for all of you.

I think I did miss the original post. Yeah, sounds like a great idea! You can maybe use the billboards to put different logos from GMC or guitar related things??

Or... you can have like a Godzilla vs. King Kong kind of theme. Doesn't have to be Godzilla but something with some enourmous creatures invading the city with some guitars strapped on. Have some of the building turned into giant amps... Ready to have a guitar battle. Since it is all off of us trading off solos anyway. I know that one photo has that wide ariel shot that looks like it could be from one those Tokyo monster invasion scenes. Anyway, just shooting ideas out there! biggrin.gif

Here is some doodling I did to think about layout and design stuff. Although I gotta give alternate picKING KONG a body yet, I thought maybe somebody my find my process (or lack there of) interesting. Hopefully you can see in the pic but some of the buildings are sketched over to be amps like DeGroot mentioned, and one of the billboards says Guitar Master Class. And of course Godzilla has a black Les Paul. wink.gif Just helping me to see how a layout would look, with angles, size, proportions, balance. Things like that. smile.gif
