Album Cover Art.. Art and music what a great combo! Music is a big part of my digital art, especially when creating album cover art. Becoming inspired to create album art covers is no problem. I love to choose accompanying music before I make any art, but when I get the chance to make an album cover, I hold vigil with the entire album to find its art and heart. Music inspired art is fun to create, especially when you play that music loud while creating the art. To be an artist of album covers is a dream job of mine, to be doing any version of it though I am not getting paid, is so awesome. I am a newbie and am still learning, I’m thankful for the opportunity to make album art for music I love. It’s a blast to make digital art of all kinds, but I am loving the creation of album cover designs.
The editor I use is a free online photo editor called PicMonkey. I am a pro user and hold and account with the Monkey, but the number of different looks I can give one base image with the free options is huge. With the pro, I could edit a single photo for hours and come up with so many unique looks but never tire of that base image. I dig using overlays of my own photos, then manipulate colors, textures and light to get something that is original and absolutely glows.
