Please mention which album cover you have interpreted in the description

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

The idea is to "reinterprett" a cover. Not an exact copy.

 Awesome challange, being such a noob I don't  know how good my entry will be but I will give it my all. This challange just informed me that Strom had passed away, and I had just watched a documentary a couple of months ago on his work with Pink Floyd. RIP.

Sorry I couldn't find a good site with lots of pictures, obviously it's a little hard to google for him at the moment.

If you're having trouble with the idea of "reinterpreting", take a look at the entries for By Jingo!

Sad animation isn't allowed. An animated version of 'A Valid Path' would be awesome.


@MrBeast - most of them you can click on and it will show the art of them.

Very nice challenge, hope I find some time to participate..

@MrBeast: The titles link to the specific articles and the most present you a cover shot..
Another possibility is to start an image search with his name :)

Well. It would be good to have overview page where we can actually see his covers and not just having the title written,

Well this is a sweet idea for a challenge. I'm definitely gonna have to do one of these.

 Epic freakin' challenge.

 Grande desafio, será bem criativo.

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 4/22/2013 05:10

Yes, sorry. "reinterpret" is a better word. Basically we don't want you just copying an album cover in pixels; you could stylise or draw figures as sprites or whatever, so long as it's clear which cover you were emulating.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 4/22/2013 03:52

Hopefully it's all about re-interpretation, not copy/trace. Should be clarified in challenge rules.

Dastal (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 4/22/2013 03:22

 Looks interesting but I don't really understand.

Are we allow to change some element of a cover pic or just reproduce the same picture but in PA?
