  • Big question: What/Who are your inspirations when it comes down to graphics?

    I've noticed a whole lot of people posting rap inspired designs lately, and I can't help but wonder why can't you guys be creative.. I understand it might be because of the message board we're at, but wouldn't it feel better if you come up with your own shit, develop your own style that sets you apart from everyone else.. makes you look very original and unique.. I remember back few years ago when I was heavily into graphics, I used to look up to the legends such as DamnEngine, UnleashedStudios, and one of my biggest ones was an artist known as n05feratu who gave up on the graphics much like myself.. don't get me wrong, inspiration does not mean trying to duplicate these artists' styles, but rather use them, define the imagery for yourself, much like when you watch a movie where each viewer has his own 'ending' explanation in a way, and turn it into creativity..
    ..Still takin' my time to perfect the beat, and I still got love for the streets, it's the D-R-E...

          hah, thanks.

          Komacyde, to answer your question: I myself want to expand rather than just doing what im doing right now. Youve probably only seen the covers ive done recently - because those are the only covers ive made. Aside from my eminem website, I didnt really use to fuck around with graphics at all. I do want to expand as far as possible with graphics, as well as flash, but it does take time. And yes, I do believe we are heavily influenced by the mesage board itself, since it is a rap forum. Ive been wanting to do some graphics with cars latley, I was even talking to ucantseeme about it.
          BIG PROOF FOREVER

            My inspiration is when I'm walking through a store and see a tight ass cd cover, I want to walk through a store and see my cover or my graphics on a magazine. Rap is my favorite type of music so those are the type of graphics I like doing. I like being the one responsible for the image put out of an artist, because marketing is a big part of things in the music industry if u dont got the right promotion and the right look, not neccisarily you wont go anywhere but its better when a good image is being put out and good promotion behind it.
