Beyond the Black by Acrylicdreams Beyond the Black by Acrylicdreams
Coverart I've done in March for the new album of Irish Metal band Old Season, which will be out on Pure Steel Records (www.facebook.com/puresteelreco…) in May.
The band had the idea with the guy walking out of the dark (black) towards the light, while the faces on the cave walls and the dreamy landscape outside were my ideas.

beeindruckend - vor allem, weil man erst beim näherem betrachten die vielen detaills entdeckt.
meine assoziation dazu: raus aus der depression - rein in eine fragile 'schein'welt... wie auch immer man das für sich interpretieren möchte ;)
toll gemalt!

I think it was a nice idea to add the faces, the eye will notice it later as it explores the art and it will make for a nice surprise.  I like how you've handled the golden utopian city, it seems both dreamlike and inviting.  I though to myself that the buildings looked like glass- glass orbs!  It reminds me of all your recent photographs of the glass orbs. :)

Hey Paul, thanks a lot!
Yes, the city is supposed to look like it has been built of glass, which adds to the surreal/otherworldly atmosphere, I think (it took me some time to decide how to design the city until I had the idea of a shiny transparent look).
the faces or their expressions also symbolize feelings like fear, sadness, agony, anger etc. which the man leaves behind.
