    I like the way you made them more natural, through the use of dust & scratches, and obviously catering to the real world, which is general very grey, aka no 255 saturated colors.

    This following one however, imo is too red. de sat, the red a little, and perhaps, add some areas of color around the triangle, make it kinda subtle.

    Attached a modified version as well.

    Additionally is the triangle, the kind of logo for the label? if so you do want to draw some attention to it, at least in this art.

    Last thing on one of your work, there is banding was this a design choice or did you work in 8 bit for it?

    Hey there, thanks for your comment

    The paradise cover was among the first I did, so it's obviously not perfect, but though thanks for your suggestions. I don't plan to make another version of it, but I will keep in mind what you said and apply it to my upcoming works

    The triangle was my logo when I used to call myself Beastereo, so this is why it's in the back for most of the covers.

    Oh and the banding was obviously a design choice. I always work with very high resolutions (generally between 2K and 4K) so trust me that it wouldn't be there if I didn't wanted it that way.

    Yeah assumed so about banding. Keep it up man, additionally for the eternity cover was that done in a 3d program or was that just a stock photo? If its a stock photo, you may want to look into free 3d programs and add that to your skillset enabling you to do more fantasy type kinda covers.

    My opinion - less triangles! The most over-done and cliched design touch currently used in the music industry!

    You might be right. Since then, I tried to make covers in a more minimalistic way, and I don't put these triangles anymore.

    By the way, here are some fresh works, hope you'll enjoy : https://astralpoint.smugmug.com/Album-covers/

    Nice, I really like the 'Colours' cover and and also the 'Born in the Dark' covers. I've never really tried this type of album design myself, always been logo/brand and now web/app design stuff. Heres my old university site from many years a go now, I really need to update it again someday. Probably when I look for a new job - My site

    Born In The Dark is right down my alley, well done.
    Any plans on during a tutorial in the future?

    With break the ice, i'd add some blue on the ice/snow like so:


    Makes it feel more lively I guess! I like everything else though.

    Thank you ! I've never thought doing a tutorial, actually I could, maybe, sometime.

    You're right, it looks better this way. I had the feeling that something was missing with this cover, actually.

    Here are a couple that I have done for my own tracks. My favorite part of finishing a song is designing the art the way in envision it.
