Hi,
thought you might be interested in some early album cover concepts intended for a future release of mine. I wanted something to illustrate its themes of AI/sentience/etc. (album title is Sentient Life). It has quite pronounced elements of Synthwave. I thought Reason's sequencer would make an interesting palette...

I love the artwork. Amazing. That looks even harder than painting in MS Paint with a mouse. How long did it take you?

Many thanks guys! ;)

@miscend: It was relatively easy once I'd nailed a process, and only took under a couple of hours. I'm going to draught a few more before I settle on a final one. I'm considering leaving a portion of the sequencer on there to give some context as well. I used my album title track, Sentient Life, as the palette - just to give the graphic some symbolism/relevance

Cheers!
