    Hello,
    I am nearing release of my new EP, entitled the "Dreams and Fantasies EP". I am in need of cover art for it, and it would be great if you could help me out with creating it.
    Here is what I would like to do:

    What I want to do is, because the album is called "Dreams and Fantasies", I want it to be a picture of a perfect blue sky (like this: http://cdn.macado.com/assets/post/2012/08/Owl-City-The-Midsummer-Station.jpeg )
    with white clouds near the top of the image (like this, except under the clouds:
    http://i883.photobucket.com/albums/ac34/ptto911/0a970c3107524cd42bbcfaba5316a707_zpsa0c142cb.jpg )
    or this:
    http://i883.photobucket.com/albums/ac34/ptto911/Sky_zpsc49af85b.jpg
    The sky would be like the dreams you have (at night), I'd have something conforming on the bottom half and the album title. The whole thing might look cool in a night setting too, actually (like this:

    Thank you.

    I'll give it a try :]. My school server doesn't let me go any of those links, so I'll check it out when I got home. Should have it next week sometime, you can check out some of my other stuff in my thread in this forum.

    Meh, here's a link:

    by "something conforming" do you mean something kinda fading into it? if so, what?
    Edit: here's what I got so far. Tell me hat you want and think! I don't mind at all re-doing it, I'm still in the "beginner" stage :]

    I think it's cool so far. It could use less blue tint and a lot more stars, and the text could be a bit smaller.

    As another example to base an idea on, I have this idea (and notice the two people at the bottom):

    I'm not sure if Ty5onY2 is still on the project, so is there anyone else who'd like to help?

    Mainly filters and stock images, this is just an idea that I put together. Thought it would be cool to have a daytime-esque setting, but with a digitized night sky cutting into it.

    Whoa, I love this haha. Could you maybe make the sunlight extend and/or fade into the dark part between it and the night sky? It seems a little separated from it. And maybe make the digital blocks on the night sky a bit smaller?

    Yes, a lot better :D I like how it seems more colorful now.

    If I can request one more thing, instead of the blocks, could you try a distortion effect? I think it would look cool for it to have pixelated distortion on that whole part, and have the tiny pixels (or blocks/squares) from the distortion flying away from it diagonally.

    I'll see what I can do, but I don't think I can get that to work with my limited software.

    I'm not trying to say I don't like it, or criticize it in any way. I'm very grateful for all of this. I didn't expect this quality of work, to be honest. I do want this to be the official cover of the album, so I'm just trying to make sure it really comes out the way I envisioned it.
