Vabriel was very creative when it came to interpreting our brief for a band t-shirt in an artistic way - creating a dark, lino cut style design that really appealed to our more metal-leaning fan. Quick to respond to questions and incorporate feedback, we would happily recommend Vabriel to others!

I love working with Pro Colors. Amazing work. I can't say enough good things about this very talented illustrator.
I am absolutely thrilled with the cover design and the ease of dealing with 99designs! I gave Paganus just a few thoughts on "Lizard," a character from my novel, and he hit the assignment out of the park! I needed just the right balance between showing a Satanist protagonist and conveying the message of "So Help Me God" that good will triumph over evil. Pagunus nailed it. In addition, he was very patient as I found a few of MY errors in the back cover text and he fixed all of them. Every aspect of the project was completely positive.
Great communication, ability to combine our vision with his design skills and bring it to final work.
Pleasure to work with!

We make old school death metal.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Only artists interested in 'darker' design need read further.
We're a South African death metal band that focus on the old school death metal sound. We're launching our first 8 track album in March of 2012 and need a cover design that will show we're serious, here to stay and it should be comparable in quality and style to the designs attached (of classic death metal albums).
The idea would be to incorporate the attached logo (I can provide higher quality images too). Some kind of beast or character rising out of a 'blood pit' would be a start, any ideas for notable concept cover art would be fine as well.
I can make the lyrics for the songs available on request or higher quality logo scans.
Looking forward to working with artists willing to bring the right feel to a cover.
