    Hmm, nice find! The lines and some of the colors do remind what we've seen for Time the last few... years :loco: (Damn it, Jari, hurry up!)

    Maybe for Time II? I thought they already had the artwork for Time?

    Pretty sure Jari said the cover with the tree is a wrong version (or a demo), not really sure. I just know the guy that has done these is a professional graphic artist and has done album covers for bands before. So I guess these are a pretty good idea of what the cover is gonna look like.

    Doesn't really look a Wintersun cover to me. But the guy who's done it is a proffessional artist, so who knows..

    Yeah, he's a pro artist and it seems legit. Cool concept and all, but it just does not seem to fit. We'll see.

    Agreed. I like photo-realistic stuff, but make it something else... the face stuff is too trendy right now.

    Didn't like the work in progress shots but happy with how it turned out! Very hectic, like how I expect it to sound.

    ^Same here. It looks great! My only complaint is that it could use a bit more of a winter theme.

    Don't like the face staring into me.. The old coverart was much better. But it's the music that counts in the end. I hope the pre-ordering will be available soon

    i honestly think this one's a lot better than that old, years-old version circulating the web. the thing with photo-manipulated covers is that if the artist doesn't have a lot of practice with creating this type of artwork, it can really make the final product look kinda like shit, like it was just thrown together, which is what i think of the old one (of course is wasn't final and could've looked better with a good amount of touching up, but still). if the music on the new record is as elaborate as jari says it is, this artwork will be a perfect fit for it.

    It's kinda cool but could be better. I think I liked the old one better too. Hopefully the music will be good after all this time.

    Is no one else bothered by the fact the title looks like it was slapped on last minute with no care for alignment or symmetry? Hmmm...

    Doesn't bother me, where would you have had it? Top middle maybe.
