Kaemon "The Ballad of Mary Surratt" CD art

OKAY! HERE WE GO!

Got an offer to do a CD cover for my friend Will's band and went for it. I used the same technique as the Admiral Browning Magic Elixir package but it was a little easier as the technique was already set and the drawing was less, more design this time. Had a good time doing it! Here's the finals:

First I made a mockup of all the elements in Photoshop to make sure it would all work out, fit and look good. You can call it an e-sketch:

After it was good to start I seperated them and printed them out on black (dark grey) paper. Heres what i printed on the black paper:

Then I drew over it with white and scanned that in:

After that I began to clean up and work on the scanned pieces while putting them in place:

I made Black and white versions first but went with green in the end to go with the whole money/faux Masonic theme:

Thats it!
