    A young lady getting ready to go to a costume party was suddenly startled by a rustling of feathers, and turns to see that she's about to get attacked by a raven.

    Whats up with the wrinkled skin, first noticed on the ass but its everywhere like the arms etc? Thought it was cottage cheese cellulite but maybe something more sinister?

    Probably just from resizing a lossy jpg.
    Take a look at the biggest one out there:

    I think the artist spent so much time on perfecting the curve and texture of her lower butt-curve and inner thighs he ran out of time for the rest.

    Every time she puts that record on (watch the label) she slowly turns into a raven. Or something like that (maybe a confused female Dorian Gray?).

    What is going on is that they are trying to get you to buy the album because of the cover, duh!

    Love the nose mask. That's from the days of the Plague. Doctors wore them. They were filled with potpourri to mask the stench of death and to purify the air before the doctor breathed it in. You just don't see that kind of mask anymore. Wonder if the young lady was worried about the Plague?

    It looks like it might have been done on a computer. Reminds me of that terrible Iron Maiden cover , Dance of Death.

    First thing I noticed was her booty. Nice, even with a little cottage cheese. At my age a little cottage cheese is okay.

    I don't know, ask the artist (she's on PE).
    Check out Colouratura's sophomore release Unfamiliar Skies - out this spring on Melodic Revolution Records!

    Hi guys,

    The girl on that album cover appears to have “cottage cheese” skin because (everything you see here) was hand-painted, she does not exist in real life.
    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, it’s ok if you don’t like it, I understand and really don’t mind. Let’s 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

    The imagination from some of the members here above are so funny aand yes Eyes Wide Shut movie also came to mind

    Hi Sonia! I think it's a terrific cover The hearth and fire are particularly outstanding to my (very amateur) eye. I do sort of stand by my observation that the attention to detail in the female form itself was put where it was most... er... warranted Cheers!

    I think it's a brave cover that will surely get the band some attention!

    Don't sweat it Sonia. Many of the PE members here, Trurl included, get nitpicked every time they put themselves out here. Its what we do.

    So, we know where you got your inspiration for female in the mask... did you use a live model? paint her from memory? Picture? Something else?

    Hi 3LockBox,
    That's ok, thank you, plus I am too much of a silly nincompoop to take offence at witty pun intended comments, it's all just fun.

    The inspiration came from the music, the woman with the mask reference to 3 tracks on the album (track 4. Sneaky Entrance into Lisa, 7. Lisa has a Cigar and 15. Moaning Lisa). As you see this band do not take themselves seriously either hahaha other song titles are just as silly if not more
    Coupling all that together somehow I came up with that, She is wearing a mask in reference to the bands name which is CORVUS this means RAVEN or CROW in latin or maybe her nose is really big dunno. I did want to create a timeless environment, avoid a specific era and rather leave for others to decide.
    The idea was an Eyes Wide Shut plus 50 Shades of Grey (not read the book yet but heard about it ) mixed with The Big Lebowsky just for fun and because I can

    She is a fixture of my imagination, all of her in my head. I have been drawing people and characters since primary school, it started with Red Sonja I think

    Big hug! xx
