Pascal Pinon - twosomeness

ok, maybe you saw my "project" before and you noticed that I change my artist.

If no, well I change Jónsi for Pascal Pinon. I changed because I think Pascal Pinon is a small band that don't really have a great art cover.

Probably the cover were made by a friend or even by the girls from the band. So I think I can explored better than Jónsi's album. 

And the music is sweet and soft, so I can explore a soft color pallete.

Here is a short story of Pascal Pinon: 

Pascal Pinon are the twins Jófríður and Ásthildur, two girls from Reykjavík, Iceland. When they were only fourteen they got together with two of their friends and decided to start a band. Using the instruments they had, Pascal Pinon worked in the twin's bedroom. At the same place they played their first gig: calling it ‘The Friendly Concert’. Only a few months later Pascal Pinon had already played various local venues and decided to record their first album. They borrowed a house in a small town called Vogar and recorded the self titled album with only one microphone. It sounds extremely cute. The main impact on the twin’s music may be a certain shyness when faced with the thin walls of their bedroom. You’ll find a very special record. A twee mixture out of acoustic neofolk and low-fi pop: an enjoyable journey through what it's like being a teenager. Now Morr Music, that always had a special link to Icelandic music scene will releases it worldwide.

Now I'm doing a reaserch for the color pallete.

Almost all the music from Pascal Pinon say about sensations and fears, I think probably reflect tha age of the girls. 

For chose the color pallete, I research the colors of Iceland: 


So, I first sketch in my sketchbook, but I totally change it after starting drawing in illustrator:

So I sketch the new design direct in illustrator, actually I only used this draw as a reference design to make everything in photoshop... besides add texture, I and paint, like digital paint (as I could, I'm not really handy) as I tryed to make it look like hand made as possible.

So this was the first "final" result:

I'm still working on it, so any suggestion would be great :)
