ALBUM COVER ART
If you looking for the right artist to design cover art for your upcoming single or album, you got to the right place!
WE ARE ALL4BAND DESIGN, a team of professional artists, who have been working together since 2011. We do all kinds of artwork and design for musicians from all over the world. Our art and logos are used by bands across five continents and we already have more than 1000 bands in our portfolio. We work with a variety of genres including but not limited to hard rock, metal, alternative, metalcore, deathcore, post-hardcore, and death metal. Our main goal is to combine top-quality art and design with great customer service, which means smooth communication, clear terms and rates, and after-sales service. And besides that, we are very passionate specialists. We love what we do, and therefore we put our heart and soul into each project.
WHAT KIND OF ART DO WE CREATE? We design album art in a few different styles and techniques including but not limited to 3D art, matte painting (photo manipulation), digital painting, digital ink, and classic ink-on-paper drawing. Each technique has its pros and cons, so let’s explain them in more detail.
PHOTOREALISTIC COVER ART is created by modeling in 3D software or by photomanipulation in Photoshop (it's called "matte painting"). Sometimes we use both techniques if this helps us to achieve a better result. The final design usually looks quite realistic, but these techniques have limitations. It's very difficult to create otherworldly creatures, organic stuff, crowds of people, very detailed architecture, etc. We need to find the right assets on photo stocks or to be able to model them in 3D software. So, not EVERY idea can be implemented in a photorealistic style. Photorealistic techniques work best for designs with a centerpiece and a simple environment. The examples below should give you a general idea of what we are capable of but don’t hesitate to check out our PORTFOLIO to see other cover art we've done.
HAND-DRAWN ARTWORK includes both digital painting and traditional drawing/painting. We have a few artists on the team, so we can offer various styles that cover many different genres of music. We create cartoony modern digital art, but we also make classic ink-on-paper death metal art. Whatever fits your band's image. Hand-drawn techniques don't have the limitations of the photorealistic approaches, so we are able to implement any ideas. Feel free to reach out to us with a brief and we will help you to choose the right technique. Below you can see a few examples of our album art done with digital painting and digital ink techniques. Find more in our PORTFOLIO.
WHAT DO YOU GET AS THE END RESULT? The final image comes as a high-resolution JPG file (at least 3000x3000px). Upon request, we also send a version without the logo and title, which you can use for any promotional purposes.
