This anime means so much to me and I really wanted to do this masterpiece justice in my entry. Thank you Crunchyroll and Sailorbee for this amazing opportunity and contest concept.

Entry:



Proof: (hand drawn, lined and coloured in SAI, & text added in photoshop)


Some of my thought process behind this was to keep it simple, anything too complex with too much too look at is not a good album cover to me. I appreciate good cover art, it just adds to the music and makes the CD I'm about to buy so much more worth the money. I wanted to show the sweet friendship between Sentaro and Kaoru in my cover. (Since of course, friendship is the biggest theme in this series and that's what really spoke to me in it.) Contrary to popular belief, the actual theme of the series is not music. It's about friendship. The mangaka said that she never wished that her manga convey any sounds at all, it's about the underlying message that surrounds Kaoru and Sen and THEN about how music brought their relationship together. Their friendship is so precious and I wanted them to look happy and peaceful together and I really tried to put a lot of thought into their expression for this. And of course, the back cover is Ritsuko in Maria's outfit. Rit-chan has a great smile and that's the smile that Kaoru fell in love with. She's so cheerful in this because she appreciates music as much as the boys do.

Alright... Well... I tried...

All the work i used was redrawn... The 1st image I used was the Kaoru Virtual Item which I redrew.... and the next was Sentaro from a episode of Kids on the Slope... Don't have time to add to it... Oh! and to clear something up... I was going to do a clean redraw like Kaoru but then I thought the water color look looked cool so I drew Sentaro in that kind of effect...

List of the Layers If you look carefully you can see the work on each layer.

Hey I'm posting now because my scanner is not working (keeps crashing) and I'm scared I won't be able to upload my work in time. Ugh what will happen if I can't get this uploaded by midnight. I've been working for 2 weeks on this. >_<

Edit: So I got my scanner to work! It's just a shame I didn't get to do as much as I wanted to with this. I guess because I spent so long on the type I never got to do a back cover.

The title was hand lettered by me and then I polished it up in illustrator. I think it's the most successful part since I spent the longest on it. I was trying to imagine how to portray a jazz feel with typography. =)

Background illustration also by me. Inked by hand. The smaller typeface I incorporated is 'a la nage'.

Hope it's ok, I want to try and make it even better on my own time!

2nd Edit: I started to fiddle with it a bit just because I hated Kaoru's face getting cut off (it didn't look as bad in my sketch but it did on the computer) and one thing led to another and now I'm so much happier with it:

Update: I just can't help but keep playing around with this! Here's the latest version.

Final Update: This is IT! This is the original vision I had in mind. Since the series is set in the 60's I wanted to design a cover for a vinyl album, so that's why I added the weathering to it... as if it's been kicking around since the 60's. I'm a crazy person, so I couldn't rest until I also printed and assembled it so I could see how it would look in real life. I included my favorite drumstick in one of the pics! Enjoy. =)

Edit: My cover image wasn't showing up anymore for some strange reason, so I had to reupload it:

Phew! Here is my album cover. I based it on 1960 album covers with a limited color palette.
I drew from the famous running scene at the end of the opening and modified it a bit. I put some of "my favorite" items from the series.
Thank you for putting up this contest. It was great seeing so many submissions, and people's love for Kids on the Slope!

I used some paper texture from this deviant artist. http://overdosse.deviantart.com/art/13-HQ-Old-paper-Textures-66526257

I can't fathom a price on something like this. Its priceless and should be kept as something treasured. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

Just my opinion though. To each his own I guess =l
