Global Warning by Acrylicdreams Global Warning by Acrylicdreams
This was a commissioned cover, but will not be used as the front cover of the album I made it for. One bandmember told me what he had in mind for the cover and liked it a lot, but when I had finished it, the other guys thought that it looks too similar to another painting ("Evacuate") I've done for the same label so they don't want to have it on the front now - maybe it will appear on the back.
Strange thing... (especially because the guy who talked to me and the label-chef liked my version and don't think it could be confused with the other cover)
Luckily I was paid for it anyway.

Acrylics on cardboard, 43 cm x 43 cm

Reminds me of a place in Fallout 3 where I fought ghouls. There is a factory that looks just like that and the Ghouls look more or less like that as well (but with cloth rags on)

As soon as I saw that, I asked myself, "Is that a Megadeth album cover?" It is so metal.

you have a very distinctive style. although it's a completely different scene the theme is very similar and your personal style contributes to the "confusing" of these two. unfortunately i share the band's opinion and wouldn't want ordinary people to confuse my album with someone else's. and ordinary people will, at least at first glance (in shops - where it counts).

I think this piece is AWESOME
However I do see the similarities with those two pics :\
one way you could do an easy but slightly mediocre fix is photoshop the Hue/Saturation to a different color... like green to make it look toxic-like which would be pretty cool

I really like the muscle/tounge thing in front of the throat on the main skeleton. It looks really cool.

That's a shame they won't use it for the cover. It turned out really nice! I am loving those oranges and pinks in the sky, looks very bright and toxic. Also how the skeleton in the background still has some muscle attached to his chest and stomach, awesome. :heart:
