I would like help designing my debut album cover, set to release November 25th.
The record is about the psychological struggle involved with moving to a large town from a small town. The album is centralized around the theme of chasing "greener pastures", seeking career, romance, and happiness away from home. Later, the central character realizes they feel trapped, even in the large city. The album cover should subtly hint to these themes.
As this is a solo album, the album cover should include a photo of me that captures a somber feel that hints to southern/rural life and being stuck in a small town.
I have included several pictures to work with. I have put one together that I like - the one on the stoop with the lettering behind my leg on the steps. I have included a PSD for this concept. This has been my favorite so far, yet it doesn't really pop out as professional. I am not amazing with photoshop, but I think it gets the idea across. Work with this one and see if you can make it stand out as more professional.
The other pictures can also be used for different ideas. I am open to letting you be creative and work with other photos.
Please also create a panel that includes the track list and album credits. This could include a second image of me. This is where you can really get creative. Try one image on the front and one for the panel.
