This has been a pretty long time coming. Back in summer a musician on an art site asked if I would do an album cover for them. I generally liked their music, and was given almost complete creative freedom and a lot of time, so I said yes. This is the final product.

I was given 3 characters representing the band members, a title, and a general guideline to make it look like an SNES videogame splash screen. This is what I came up with.

Spent most of the summer, up until a few nights ago, plunking away at it when I had some free time. There's a version without text visible here.

Like I said, I actually quite like their music. They're not a signed band or anything, just some college students making music when they can, but it's a nice blend of kind of bluesy rock. The album is going to be available on , and you can listen to some of their other music for free, streaming.

 I would buy their album just for this cover!

Kaiseto technically never left :p I just got wrapped up doing this. I couldn't do much else artwise given school and work. I barely even worked on this one honestly. I might post stuff a little more frequently in the coming months. Unless I start another big thing.

So Kaiseto is back? What a rich piece with so much detail in both the back and foreground.

 pretty awesome

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 11/23/2011 22:06


Thanks for the advice. There's actually more to the cover that goes down in that empty space. We had to come up with a way to squeeze the band name in there, and felt that this would be a decent way of getting it on there while solidifying the "splash screen" feel.

I didn't include it in the art-site submissions because I felt it didn't really add anything to the picture artistically. I'm actually rather proud of the lettering on the title, considering I'm no sort of font guy. I see what you mean about making the MASTER part bigger. Alas, it's already finalized.

 amazing man!!!!... i love the colors

As an album cover the title seems a bit lost and disproportionate. Perhaps the 'of tiny shoes' is OK but 'master' could be more imposing somehow. Perhaps just going to about the center of the heads of the front characters?... awesome BG.
