System of a Down Album covers by PaperandDust System of a Down Album covers by PaperandDust
I love System of a Down, I really do. But I could never stand their album covers...They just grated on me! So, as a little project, I redid some of the covers. This is just a personal thing, I'm not planning on reproducing them, but I just thought I'd share. :)

Concept (C) System of a Down
Art (C) Druidchickz

Lovely ! well done, personally I'd agree with you, their album covers aren't great. I do quite like self titled though, that hand against the black background is quite haunting in a way : 3 But Hypnotize, mezmerize and steal this album could be re-released with new artwork.
Anyway I love what you've done, great use of colours, especially for Hypnotize. That blue head head as well, great. They have a psychedelic vibe.
Whats your favourite album ?

Nicely done! If SoaD is going to have a new album somewhere in the future, I'd love to see such kind of cover art on it. :3

Well, they are indeed much more pleasing to the eye.
Though in my personal perception, their image is much harsher, and your art is soft and dreamy, even when you draw skulls =]
But that's just me, and those are beautiful paintings.

Oh!
I see.

I enjoy your covers more.
If they have a twitter or facebook (if they're really popular someone else will probably answer on behalf of them) or whatever you should contact them and show them your covers! :D
