    After all the rumors regarding the new cover, i suggest that we design a cover for the new album.

    I know there are many artists and designers around this forum.

    What cover would you make?

    Just an initial idea I have floating in my head. The masks the band always use in their artwork are a great symbol for duality, or opposing forces (as in V). That for every positive there's a negative, light and dark, etc. This would work perfectly for the concept of Paradise Lost, so something visually representative, using the mask concept, of opposing forces could look cool. A scene depicting the enormous chasm separating paradise from dark abyss. Man, one could go on and on with ideas for this CD! Well, my two cents.

    Perhaps a valley on one side, and a wasteland on the other?

    I wouldn't use the masks anymore. Time to move on IMO. Also, I wouldn't use computer graphics for the cover design as it inevitably looks dated much too soon.

    I think the V one looks incredibly dated, but this new potential one uses computer graphics really well. As for dropping the masks, well that's just silly - they're hardly intrusive and are just a little reference for those who care.

    I really hope this one or a variation on it becomes the final cover unless jdub can produce a crayon masterpiece that bests it.

    Us designing the cover would be a big mistake, just for the fact that the cover must fit the music. If we haven't heard the music, how can we know what cover to create?
