Big Thief: Masterpiece box art cover

I've had the picture I created of the living room saved in my computer forever, but I've finally found a way to make it work on a cover.

All you kids are out here retiring, I'm just getting started.
This isn't even my final form.

The back is pretty dull, but the front is cool. I can't say I've seen anything like it on the site before.

@spypilot It's the minimalism that does it - especially because there's no eyes! ;)

Seriously though, this is a first for me as well. Really interesting cover. The back is a bit dull like Sonic said, but I'd be interested to hear how you composed the front image

@BenBrownDesign lots of playing around with levels, lots of lassoing, lots of playing around with colors.

My only comment is for the track list maybe use the same font as the "BIG THIEF" on the front. Would tie both side together a bit more.

@Spypilot Or do the whole back as a old TV screen (and tv border). Use either font you prefer, again it would tie the 2 sides together

@Vince_1990 @Vince_1990 All of these suggestions I have tried, haha.

I really wasn't feeling it. My favorite look was to just make the back simple and clean.

List of things I have tried

- Making it a TV

- Using different fonts

- making it a wall with picture frames, with pictures of the band in them.

- a continnuation of the image on the front

None of them looked super nice, and they distracted from the front.

@Vince_1990 I could see how in your head one might think it would look better, but in reality it really didn't look all that great.

Thanks for the critique though.
