Cover Make Over-Counting Crows-This Desert Life

By Posted on 6 Comments 1 min read

This weeks Cover Make Over challenge is the Counting Crows album, This Desert Life. The original cover is the guy dressed in a suit but his face and head is replaced by a goldfish bowl with 2 goldfish. I wasn’t sure how to approach this challenge, so I Original Desert Life Coverconcentrated on the title, ‘This Desert Life’ which obviously suggests someone living in a desert.

I used stock photographs and layered the items on top of each other. Starting with the desert background, I added a small pyramid in the top right hand corner. Then the goldfish in the bowl which was another stock photo. I finished off with the text, and finally added the sun with some rays to give an impression of the desert in the midday heat. That’s about it.

      Thank you Jude.

  • great job………..kind of feel sorry for the poor goldfish lol. I agree with the actual desert, the pyramid and sunburst are a great additions. Which font did you use for the title, kind of reminds me of Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas (Or am I thinking of something else?) I really like it Trev!

      Thank you Julz. I didn’t stray too far from the original with this one, so yes, the poor goldfish is probably getting frazzled. The font reminded me of Egypt and the desert etc, but I get your point about Cesears Palace.
