It's out on September 7. Hopefully we get to know the tracklist soon.
Even if it’s just the full I Want Your Love, I hope she’s on it. All the hyping from him forever needs to lead to some payoff.
That had so much potential, but the execution is godawful. The color balance on both of them is so different and they are so obviously pasted together. They pushed the black girl's shadows all the way to blue while the white girl has a relatively neutral coloring.
Sis it’s an album cover. All things go. I think it looks fantastic!
I guess from far away it still looks great, but I would want stuff like this corrected if I were to get it on vinyl or something.
(The model on the right isn’t white)
Dddd the Its About Time
But it’s not a mistake? They wanted them to look like this.
I made a quick correction to show what I'm talking about. Yes, yes, who cares, well, I do.
Light skinned, then.
I was feeling something off about the cover but I really couldn't get it right ddd
it gives me graphicdesignismypassion.png tease, but your edit makes it natural. Love it.
Now hoping for a song on the final cut.
But...the designer maybe wanted the girls too look strange and otherworldly - it’s not their album cover.
I love Duckie and Jazelle.
I just watched footage of them shooting the cover yesterday, and they definitely weren’t pasted together.
And I imagine they pushed the shadows into blues because it’s generally a design rule not to work with black because it sucks all the other colors out of the image.

The problem here is that they only pushed the black model's shadows into blue, but not the other one's, which makes for a jarring, "unrealistic" effect, which is why I thought they were pasted together: they look like they were shot under completely different lighting conditions. When a shadow is "colored", it means that bounce light from the setting is reflecting on it and illuminating it slightly with its own color, which means that it should apply to everyone and everything in the frame. It doesnt look "intentional" or even otherworldly. They didn't go full abstract or surreal with strong colors and artificial values, one model is perfectly neutrally color graded while the other had a very strong hue pushed on top of her.
By the way, I am not talking out of my ass here. I know "design rules". I am a designer and illustrator, and I extensively study how to render light and shadow / color theory on a daily basis.
Also I hope this post doesn't come off combative or like I'm trying so hard to prove I'm right, I'm just trying to make my issue with the cover clearly understood, since this topic interests me a lot.
Yeah, they color graded the original photo, which is fine. The model on the right had the blacks made more warm and the left had hers made more blue. It feels like they were going for a "warm/cool" vibe... but that's just my interpretation so who knows! Though, I don't mind the original as it just seems to fit the whole "Chic" vibe.
So, about that ARTPOP Act II...
Justice for Onion Girl!
