Very well made, though a bit too plastic. I think there's too much stuff on it also, too much detail. It could fit a metal cover if it would be more subtle or something.

Made me think Stratovarius did this one :) And no... it's not too many details here. Look at Rhapsody covers.... Details all over, but fits perfectly :D

Chris, do you do any artwork for Transit magazine? I noticed an add for your website in one and the cover art looks similar to your work.

Hi, I used to make the Transit covers a few years back, but now I only make the layout of the cover page... the images themselves are from Vali (my fiancee).

This one doesn't suit my taste at all, it looks way too "sterile" and "soulless" (i hope this makes sense :roll: ). I should probably say that i am extremely picky about CG art (which you all probably guessed already).

I see. She is very talented, I love the cover for the Swiss Carnage 2004 Magazine. I noticed an interview with you in that issue too. Where can I find the Sybreed 'Slave Design' cover?

I don't know, by buying the album I guess ? Otherwise check Sybreed's website maybe.

I probably will once it comes out. Great band.

You did do the artwork for that album, didn't you?

Ok... someone has to say it... maybe it's just the way you shaded it, but that left nipple looks like it's about to jump out of her bikini and stab her. Otherwise it's a fine piece of art.

I think that's just the texture... looks mighty suspicious though. This artwork wouldn't be missplaced on a stratovarius album.

Great work again, Chris!

I personally LOVE this one !!!! :) Reminds me a lot of "EmOcean"...which is now my favourite album hehe !!! I like everything related to "water worlds" and it's the reason why I like it that much. Dolphins, fishes...Cool ! And nice staff, by the way !!! (I think Hubi Meisel liked it too...) :lol:
Otherwise, I also think it would fit perfectly for an album of Stratovarius !!!

@ Chris: Is this art design was made BEFORE the release of "EmOcean"...or the pic you posted here (exactly the way it is right now) was made AFTER Hubi Meisel's album ? Thanks.

First of all thanks for all your comments and nice words. As per your question, it was made after Hubi Meisel's EmOcean, and he liked that pic too :).

Thanks,
Chris
