Photoshop Tutorial: Pendulum’s Immersion album cover art step-by-step

I had a big pleasure to write this tutorial for Digital Arts and now I’m happy to announce it was published in recent (September) issue. What’s more interesting, it’s available online. Check this out.

Recent Number 1 album Immersion by drum n’ rockers Pendulum features a photo-illustrative cover by Polish artist Maciej Hajnrich (aka Valp), which was also used across the Collector’s Box Set, including double vinyl, postcards and a bunch of merchandise.

I really like this cover because of several reasons but the main thing is that I had that idea long time ago and was waiting to use it somewhere. I took trunk photos more than year ago and just know they will be perfect one day. And that time came up few weeks ago, cover looks pretty good and that’s it! 🙂

When band came up with proposal of work they were excited about Beltaine’s album (Koncentrad). It was a challenge because I didn’t want to make the same thing for band who knows each other and, what’s more, I prefer to include part of my soul into graphics – just like they are doing the same with their music. I got  absolutely 100% creative freedom while working on this album which is much much appreciated, especial because shanties albums are… crappy, if you take a look at graphic design (at least in Poland :). So, I hope you like it as much as I do!
