None of these are really my cup of tea - apart for the Pineapple Thief one, which I find particularly beautiful. Love those colours.

Also rather like this one for some reason:

Pineapple Thief, followed by Spock's Beard.

I don't really like any of those.

This one is probably my favorite from the last couple of years though.

I could vote Echolyn in terms of one of the ultimate best albums, band everything, but artwork this I can't, I cannot even describe it as simplistic art, to be honest I do not know how to classify it but it is certainly not artistic enough for me to be one of the best 2012 album covers tho' Stern Smile

I like that album cover too, cstack3Approve Very much, infact that cover I saw before I was inspired to make this one Smile unfortunately many/most don't know it's handpainted all of it nothing was photoshopped/copied, everything was hand drawn and painted from nothing only using paint wich comes standard with microsoft accessories on microsoft office (not to be mistaken with paint.net program) lol I am very limited :)

Ok, I hadn't seen this cover until now, that's really cool.

Kati, the one that you did is fantastic as well, I believe we actually exchanged a few messages about it.
