Hi there. So after getting a great response when looking for someone to creatively enhance the publicity photo for my band, I thought I would do the same for the publicity photo for my duo. We are a comedic, high-energy rock music group meant for kids and families (kids roughly ages 3-10). What I need is someone to make a creative background for one (or both) of the two pictures attached (EHPDD_5231 and/or EHPDD_5302). That is the main directive, but if you can also add the attached logo (EHPDD_logo2) to the kick drum, and remove the green tape strip from my microphone, and also tweak the image for color, contrast, etc. (probably needed more on EHPDD_5231), that would be appreciated (I can do all of that stuff myself, though, so my main concern here is the design of the background... your entry will still very much be eligible if all you do is the background).
Here is a link to the previous contest: https://www.freelancer.com/contest/Photoshop-my-Bands-Publicity-Shot-47454.html If you look at entries 23, 67, 20, 117 and a few others like that, you will get an idea of what I would like here. 23 was my favorite among those (a copy of that is attached here as a reference), for the color style and the look of it being something that kids drew and had a fun time with. And though the idea of it being graffiti was a little bit naughty, that kind of helped to convey that we are more of a rock band for kids as opposed to something that is more gummy bears and rainbows. I am not saying that I necessarily want that kind of thing for this contest, though, so please do not just duplicate that... But I would suggest to keep that in mind as far as what I might be looking for. Dave and I do the same songs and kind of show as the full band, so there is some crossover there as far as style and approach. But use your imagination and be creative... I will post feedback as soon as possible to hopefully guide you in a better direction, if something is not working for me.
As a suggestion for style, I would think more in terms of comedic/absurd for the image EHPDD_5231, where we are holding our instruments backwards, and something more superhero/comic book for EHPDD_5302. But I am open to any ideas that might work. Be careful not to go overboard, though... the background should look cool and creative and complement our style, but should not overshadow the subjects.
***PLEASE NOTE!! DO NOT USE ANY LICENSED MATERIAL!! If you add pictures of Disney characters, or anything that is not original or public domain, I CANNOT USE IT!! I want to stress that because I had several entries like that last time and I hated to see the time and effort wasted.
I am also not a huge fan of extra words or symbols like musical notes and stuff like that. That being said, the right thing is the right thing, whatever it includes, and I certainly will not rule out entries just because they include extra words or musical notes. And now that I think about it, something with action words might possibly work with a comic book style for EHPDD_5302.
Note: If you do add the logo to the drum kit, I think the whole head of the drum should be white, with the logo centered pretty large within there.
You might want to check out my website and/or YouTube channel for ideas. Search "Eric Herman" on Google or YouTube and you'll find those links. My big hit is "The Elephant Song," so some inclusion of an elephant might work well, though don't just throw an elephant in there for the sake of having an elephant.
Thank you in advance for your efforts and talents. I look forward to seeing what you create! Please let me know if you have any questions.
“Wow, amazing work! Will definitely want to work with again.”
