brilliant concept and delivery.. im not an artist but i admire art for some years now.. deviant art for instance is full of technically "perfect" artists but they all seem to be going down the same stream when it comes to ideas.heck if you visit any club that says -photomanipulation you will see 10000 woman figures dressed in gothic clothing and a moon in the background..
This is really awesome! I especially love how you've manipulated the typography.
It seems a shame that the client didn't want to use it, but I suppose it's understandable if it doesn't fit with the music. To be honest though, if I wanted a CD cover and someone designed me this i'd use it no matter what genre it was haha
Anyways yeah, great stuff!
I'm also downloading one of your crumpled paper fonts as I type this, going to have a mess around in photoshop later with it.
