    Default Couple custom 2pac/Makaveli covers I just made!

    hey MB, I know I haven't posted as much as I used to, but with a couple kids it's harder nowadays lol...anyways, I designed these covers for a revamped "Makaveli Series" I've always wanted to do...these are some covers I got done for the series, I'm gonna do back covers, inserts and inside booklets also, just haven't gotten time just yet...but they will come! If I could get some feedback from y'all it'd be nice to see where to go from here, so to say!

    Concept for "Thug 'N Me: R U Still Down?" aka Makaveli Pt. 4



    Concept for "Thug Passion" aka Makaveli Pt. 5



    drop some feedback if u got time!!! thx

    Props to bobby180 for this sig!!!

    You are too much in love with the emboss function, both are very basic, needs a more artistic touch

    @Menace81 there's no more emboss in these that are in any other covers...I'm not in love with it just chose this look for these covers cuz imo they blended good together with the pic....I also wanted a pretty basic look for these 2 so that is why they look pretty basic...but if u could elaborate on "a more artistic touch" would help, I'm always looking to improve my craft and if u could point out what u think these should be more like I will take that into consideration! thx for ur input, I really appreciate it! and I'm not meaning for this comment to sound hateful if it does, just wanted us to both be on the same page! ur feedback really is appreciated!
    @SLYD0G55 thx, appreciate it!

    You should save embossing as something special, I barely use it whenever I make something.
    Using a filter or adjusting an image isn't that special, you could cut out 'Pac and put him in a cool place (make sure it isn't too clear it's unrealistic).

    You could also use and make effects, for Photoshop there are lots (eyecandy etc.)
    For instance: Take a 'Pac pic, filter out his pupil and replace it with a globe and make it a single for "Worldwide mob figgaz", that is more artistic. Now if you throw in some Cali background and a lowrider, then you got a good setting, just don't go over the top.

    Hope this helps, I am not a profesisonal designer, been fucking with different programs for over 15 years and made some stuff (flyers, websites, etc.)

    yeah, I get what your saying and agree! I just see a whole lot of ppl that do go "Too over the top" and just don't care for that look myself...with the "Thug Passion" I used an Action called "Action_Pack" which has a nice collection to it...I do like to put a little bit of effects to the text other than just a bland look! thx for your input I do appreciate it!!!

    I think if you made that pic in Thug Passion clearer and the text look golden, without the emboss, then add a bottle Alize and a bottle Crystal, with a classy, but hot girl holding a glass... That would speak more than just some image and text (no insult intended).
