    For me it's a couple from Terria, the one with the moth on the tree and the face and the leaves. The other ones I really remember are for Skinlab's Disembody sleeve, bought it at a gig, jaw dropped, asked Steev about it, he said "it's fucking great, that's all I know"

    For me the Opeth discarded artworks, bot SL and BWP. Amazing!

    I also like the dragonlord one tho, and there was an illustration on the site which I remember from a while ago, I reallyliked, but don't think it was for anything :confused:

    not quite sure, thats probably why i love it. :D , it reminds me of sleepy Hollow (and i was drooling whilst looking at the background of the film, and the BWP stuff just compliments it is suppose. i just love the atmosphere it creates.

    I think you should try to do covers for Earthtone9 - your style would fit their music perfectly IMO. \m/

    I vote Tonight's Decision.

    The entire booklet is one ghostly representation of the album.

    Truly amazing stuff.

    ah yes. a darkness coming.
    That one worked out quite well.

    it's the ghost of a train where you can only see the headlight.

    That is easily my favorite layout and cover design. even beats out the emperor stuff, and that's hard in my book...

    :lol: He's definitely the man alright.

    The ghostly images of Tonight's Decision is probably the perfect atmosphere for that album.

    I lent it to a friend and he lost the cover and case etc.!! He's ordering it in again for me, but rest assured I wasn't impressed!

    yeah Tonight's Decision is good, i always loved the back pic with the woman on the chair with the noose round her neck, not for the obvious reasons but because the patchy scratches on it that look like water, awhile after i realised it was just scrathes like on old movies and photos, i prefer to see it as water though :D
