You Wouldn't Know What Good Art Is If It Hit You In The Face


Since we had the whole MS album art awards, I figured I would try and list out my favourites.
This is not in any order and has no relation to the music, there are bands in here that I don't like, but the artwork is still great.
I'm not quite sure of some of the illustrators and designers on some covers, so they have been left blank, if you do know who did them, let me know. If you think there are some artists that I would dig coz of similar work, just leave me a shout.
This list is not finished so I will keep adding covers that I like.
I don't like Derek Riggs work too much so don't ask me why an Iron Maiden cover is not on the list.

What do you have against nice big natural breasts?
Scared of beauty and great feeling, doom guy?




To me the shape is more important than the size. Hence why I hate fake ones almost always as well. But the size definitely matters too, obviously. Going from what you said, I think we agree on this topic.
