    Well thanks , I'll be sure to check that out sometime. I haven't been doing this very long this is my first actual CD cover. Everyone has to start somewhere.
    I'm sure your shit wasn't golden when you first started. Thanks for the criticism though it doesn't bother me.

    You would understand better how it happend if you knew the person. I didn't offer it or anything. Me and him were going to make a track called All Upin Texas and it gave me an idea of somthing like this and I just made it to be for myself and he came threw one day and seen it when I was working on it and he said he wanted that hoe I told him he could have it for free and he said na you put some time into that and it looks throwed and asked me how much I wanted. That's when I figured I'd ask you guys then I figured fuck it ima make some money off this fool. It's all good homie no disrespect I was just trying to get some advice to get this thing done. I'd say my work is a little better now since I made this and Im planning on going back and working on this one a little more and sending him a redone peice of it where I will take out the double image lighten the fog and have it only around the sky and prolly alot more.

    The most important thing is, your text gotta be readable. Also there's no focus in this cover, I mean I don't even know where to look at, effects/cars/text is placed randomly without any intention. Dude you placed on the bridge is way too small, gotta search for him to find him. Normally the focus should be on the rapper/rappers, just like in this maybach music cover http://rt-now.com/wp-content/uploads...usic-group.jpg

    I'd recommend you to search for some covers you like and check out their text placement and overall layout, for the next time.

    IMO tha guy on tha bridge looks too big, he looks like he was stretched too wide and it makes tha perspective bad cuz he looks too big compared to tha bridge. Im not real sure if tha guy was photoshopped onto tha bridge or not cuz of tha big transparent lookin copy of tha guy that he put above him. If thats tha case then its tha transparent one thats throwin off tha perspective of tha bridge and tha dude on it.

    Thanks Indo. I checked out the Ross Cover and I get what your saying. I'm working on a cover for another artist now and I have took all of this into effect and trying to come up with a better one than this. I think it is already looking far better than this. I will post when it's done so you can check it out and see if it has improved. Thanks to all.

    To be brutally honest, this is the type of work that keeps me in business. Constructively, the cover looks just like the actions you did. You a picture and looked in the filter gallery and selected one or two stroke filters, rendered clouds over it and changed the opacity, took generic car cutouts and applied some more filters, did a lens flare that doesn't even fit the images, took some generic cut out lightening strikes and applied a hideous stroke that doesn't fit or look natural, downloaded three ugly fonts that don't fit the cover, put the script in an applied an ugly stroke and coloring that again doesn't match, duplicated the layers move em and then changed the opacity and erased around it (no idea what the hell you were trying to accomplish). Then you applied 254 on the road sign. This would of been the only logical thing I've seen in the cover .. if you didn't put it in some graffiti font that's too bold, wasn't blended in right, and looks unrealistic. Plus, what legit road sign do you see with the area code put in on a green exit sign with the graffiti writing? Finally, the worst thing you did was put your tag on it in big blue letters that again don't match, take up too much space, and are in a completely unrelated font again.

    The worst problem I see is that someone paid for this? I give you credit for whoever you hustled but make no mistake you ripped the dude off incredibly. Anyone who illegally downloaded Photoshop, spent 20 minutes with it, and isn't a complete moron could have made this. I know art is supposed to be subjective, but anyone who says this is dope either lives under a rock or has no idea what they are talking about and should stop dick riding for free shit.

    First, you need to get together your concepts before just winging it. Half the shit in the cover doesn't make sense with a concept. For example, say the lightning and lens flare did work with the whole street ghetto car theme (which it doesn't at all), how would you both have a lens flare (which would mean sun is hitting a lens) and lightening at the same time? That's just a logical thing. My biggest tip would be to learn the basic elements of design. Once you mater that, go back and study the true functions of Photoshop. Read tutorials on them, learn more, and stop worrying about making a buck off it. Number one mistake in any profession is doing things just for money. Musicians, artists, anyone who truly get it knows that you do things because you love it, if you can live off it that's just the bonus.

    This.

    Completely agreed with everything in Lethal's post, but that final bit was just the icing on the cake. Listen to him.

    I'm not aggravated, not having a bad day, or anything else. I said that in the nicest way possible and offered constructive criticism. StunnaBeats said it before, "
    everybody sucks wen they start but your tryin to pass off this cover as sumthin thats worth spendin money on". I do this for a living and was just offering a reality check and advice. I wish CTB nothing but luck, but if he wants to really make dope shit and actually make something he can make money off of he can by following my advice.

    Thanks for all of the feedback. Looking back on this production. It really was a disaster.
    I have read everyone's advice and took in all the criticism. This is what I love to do, I wouldn't be doing it if I didn't.
    I just wanted you to check out my latest work you can find it on my website. Thanks to all for your help and advice. The website is still being worked on in some places so bear with me. Thanks again.
