These are all lovely work.

I would be interested to learn more about how you managed to create some of these using the Affinity software.

Specifically how you created the Genesis cover, or the one with the blue/brown water ripples.

I wouldn’t expect you to go into details, they obviously took a lot of time/skill/effort, but if you can tell us some of the functionalities you used and maybe give some general tips on creating that sort of thing then that would be nice.

Thank you for your appreciation.
I qualified my post by including the tag "3D", which means that the covers of Genesis, The Wings (Venus and Mars), Mike Oldfield (Tubular Bells) and Jazzanova (In Between) were essentially built with the software Maxon Cinema 4D and then enhanced with A. Photo.
For the rest, like Jean-Michel Jarre (Equinoxe), Neil Young (Harvets) or even Pink Floyd (Wish You Were Here and The Dark Side of the Moon stickers) were designed with A. Designer.
Finally, the idea here was to offer wallpapers, in high definition (5120 x 2880 px), from original covers of iconic 33LPs, which are perfectly “square”!... 😉

Ah, sorry, I didn’t notice the little “3d” tag – that clears it up.

All I’ll add is that, for the work that’s done in Designer, it’s often good to include a wireframe view which often shows how much work has been put into it or, alternatively, how clever you have been to do it with so few layers.

As I’m sure you’ll be aware, it’s not always clear from the result that hours(/days?) of work have gone into getting it just right.

We often get asked: “How can I recreate <this very complex thing> in the Affinity applications?”, and the only reasonable answer we can give is: “Spend thousands of hours experimenting, learning, ripping it up and trying again from scratch and repeating, and it doesn’t hurt if you also have a talent for it.”

Le 29 septembre 2023 dernier, Steven Wilson a sorti son 7ème album solo : une merveille (selon mes oreilles et ce qui se trouve entre elles deux) pour ce musicien ultra complet (écriture, interprétation et production) et très productif, en plus d'être très créatif.

Voici une interprétation de la couverture de l'album sous forme d'un wallpaper en HD (5120x2880) et ma petite “sculpture” !...

Good ole Jeff. I admired him greatly.

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

These are not my own words but I sure like this quote.

🇬🇧 Un autre album des Floyd, Atom Heart Mother (1970), un peu à part, avec ses instrumentations symphoniques, quelques belles balades et autres psychédélismes…
