...Alot of Them Look Like "Remix" Covers and Not New Covers.
a lot of them are weed related(which makes sense with the title). A lot of them incorporated stuff from the original cover. a bunch of covers i seen are going to get disqualified to begin with(copy write pictures,design logos,etc.). hell even one dude had wiz khalifa up there and no curren$y

i tried to come up with something a little different since a lot of people are going to go that route. i still filled my bx quota though

submissions ended almost an hour ago. voting starts tomorrow. good luck to everybody on bx that's in it

Don't be lazy with the canvas by mirroring the background and smoke effect, the quality drops so much.

a big thing about graphic desin is you want to tailor your work to the artist and honestly i feel like j jones captures currensys music visually on his covers more than some of the official covers currensy picked real sh*t. i read through and n*ggas in here hatin like crazy for no reason. n*ggas cant ever just pay respect when its due, just hate like women, thats why i Salute drumgang and whoever else supporting homie.

im just getting into illustrator so once i get that down im pretty much golden. i like the way you draw yours do u have a tablet or what?
You're decent, but JJ is a lot better in what he does. Your designs seem quite ubiquitous (i.e. a lot of people can do what you do) compared to, say, the artistic flair JJ incorporates into his covers. Vector art is a style seldom used in rap album covers, but IMHO, it's a good fit for Curren$y, hence why people are supporting JJ's designs.

Just by looking at your designs, I can tell how you did what. It doesn't look refined. It looks decent, but nowhere near professional, and a designer can pick apart the layers within seconds. With JJ, he's actually incorporated his own thing with his covers. They're not the best vectors ever, but the color palette mixed with his vectors (usually) create something artistically worth appreciating. It's not generic. For an artist, you don't want your work to be generic. That said, IMHO, JJ needs to improve on his typography, though; sometimes I wonder whether he notices that they're not up to scratch with the rest of his work or not.

keep it simple stupid
these are both garbage its been said time an time again, jj's font work is a.ss, thats what peoples eyes go to when they look at things with words on them its the center of attention, no matter how good your vector or art is if your typography aint on point it makes everything else real sh*tty
