This is the first stage of trying to come up with a CD cover. Not, unfortunately, a major label world wide release but the music will be excellent, so it's important to me that the artwork is too. I've got a lot of ideas to work through but this first step interested me enough to put it up here.
I hope you like it too.

I like this a lot. The figure and the background contrast well, and the manipulation work is excellent. I think perhaps there should be a wee bit more space between the body of the guitar and the frame. I'm also not convinced that I like the legs coming outside of the frame.

Picky ..... moi ???

Thanks Kris, and thanks Dave. Good points. I'm not sure the border was necessary at all, just a little fit of indecision before posting.

Yes I like this. Legs and frame good for me.
Wonder how it would look with different crop - maybe shifted across with more space to the left?
Very nice colour palette

the image seems like its moving or should i say grooving! maybe add frame in between the legs? but i like the frame the white connects to the the suit draws you to the figure instead of getting lost in that wonderful background effect.
cat..
can't wait to see the finished product

Super image - it jumped out at me (which is what you want from a CD cover).

I like the way the legs drop out over the border but would agree with Cat about continuing the border under the legs. I would also like to see the shadow from the legs on one side only and a corresponding shadow under the arm over the guitar

I like this. I agree with DaveU that the guitar needs a little more elbow room on the left. As for the legs crossing the frame, I like that effect.

somehow I missed a comment! I've spent sometime looking at this and the background colours work to enhance the white. The overlay give a effect of transporter problems.... but is in keeping with the images overall effect.

The Border - yes i know why you did it blends and holds it all together. need the bottom bit everything will fall out !
