Pentakill Album Cover Redesign

I was inspired to make this album cover as a redesign of a video game inspired Death Metal group known as Pentakill. As a challenge, I limited myself to only using photographs that I had taken for elements and textures. Blend modes and custom brushes were utilized to create the transparent feel of the images. The ghostly hand and swords throughout the cover are symbolic of the fantasy elements portrayed in the songs. The font choice also ties it to the medieval, gothic feel.
