So here’s the first thing I’m posting here as something I made.  It’s a fake “single” album cover for the band The Pretty Things, for my favorite song of theirs called “Death”.

I recently got a Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet thing, which helped a lot.  To make this file I used Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign, which I don’t think should’ve been necessary.  I can’t quite figure out how to put in textures using Illustrator in the top and bottom bars, though (maybe I can’t?).  Photoshop was used to put in the crumpled paper texture for the main image.  I wanna use Illustrator as much as possible instead of PS because vector pwns raster. Visible pixels are ugly 99% of the time.

Including revisions, this took 3.5 hours total.

Time to hit the tutorials!
