Fun with album art.

Post by Red_Walrus »

Took the brown background of Destroyer Resurrected and added some heat, still like the original better but it's just for fun.

I put in the red sun in 2014 and still see this image pop up all over the place.

Thanks, just a goof but I can picture going through a record bin in 1976 and this popping out.

Great job! Love the original designs on these two classics, but your alternatives are excellent!

Here are some non-existent Destroyer Resurrected singles.
flamingyouthresurrected.jpg
beethresurrected.jpg

I've posted these two before. First is RARO altered to look like the rough draft drawing, using the color scheme of the finished album.
RAROdraftc.jpg

And this is Originals II, where I photoshopped the original photos over the crappy drawing. The photos were of them having their blood drawn for the comic book, taken backstage somewhere and poorly lit. That's what someone decided to put on an album cover?

Terrifying, and in a good way. I love your take on the color scheme. Makes me wonder what the parents of the Destroyer era would have thought when they saw that! :shock:

I like the colorized photo of the band but the red sun is too bright and draws attention away from the band.

There actually is!

Was it the Italian release? 🤔

Someone's had fun here, putting the Resurrected artwork with that song title - but yes, that is an *original* typo.

Immediately think of the beginning of king of the night time world or God of thunder when I see it, but it looks funny with songs like great expectations or beth.
