    NO use of Photoshop software etc was used in producing the album cover. I know this because I painted that.
    This album comes in a Gatefold Digipack with a 16 page booklet.

    Life is too short to be Grumpy, itís ok if you donít like it, I understand and really donít mind. Letís not be silly, People buy whatever they want and I too believe that one prior to purchasing an album will give it a listen first.
    Give it a spin, you guys might like it.
    This album, CORVUS STONE II, is currently positioned at number two TOP 2014 Album Releases in Progarchives.

    Hugs to all you, GRUMPIES
    and the only reason it is so high on PA's list is because there's a sexy looking lady in lingerie wearing a plague masque. not criticizing the music, as I never heard Corvus Stone, but if it contained, say, me in lingerie (stop screaming), nobody would touch the thing. The only way it could get number one there is if Steve Wilson was involved in it.

    Have a listen to the band you might like them I will not compare them to Steven Wilson only because of the fact that Steven has proven himself over and over again. That said it's very hard for a new band to get noticed, harder even for people to at least give them a quick listen. The fact is that prog bands already have an uphill struggle to get noticed while out there are so many great new bands, I get excited very often when I discover something new which I have not heard before but wow many are so SO good! It’s an incredible thrill really! xxx

Which doesn't mean some of them aren't well done, but I sometimes think they're a funny choice for an album cover. This illustration taken on its own is fine - much better than that Iron Maiden cover! I do think it's funny as an album cover, but if the band don't take themselves that seriously, who cares?
    JKL2000;328201, I know there was no mal intend on what you previous said also there is no such thing as the expected when it comes to prog or maybe (lately) it has become more predictable and this is would be a shame really.
    This album cover was inspired by the music, the colours, rich tones etc etc (cooee! pls don't fall asleep ) everything here was inspired by the moozik, the whole concept really otherwise I would not do it because my mind would be blank really

    I do not want to spam, but considering that the album artwork is the main topic, if you saw the rest of the artwork on the album it might persuade you to change you mind
    Hugs xxxx

    I also know a few folks from PA hide in here, so I like to poke fun at them periodically, as well as the PE folks

    I've listened to camples on the YouTube and they seem to have a Zappa-lite thing going on there.

    He thinks it looks more like his cousin Magilla, and he hates to be an art critic.

    SM - I checked out all of your on-line artwork presence = great stuff and keep up the positive direction.

    I don't make it here to PE too much anymore - but it's always nice to see a new face (and contributing member!)

    Best of luck and tty soon.

    You're right! Probably too smooth - I think some photoshopping was done. Yeah, it's some kind of metal album I came across.
