that's pretty cool!
even tho i... erm... dislike the beatles and those colors, but as coming out of my mind i find that cover very well done :D
i don't know about the shadow behind the text.. but other than that the whole composition is great.

I love The Beatles & that psychedelic style. I don't know that your colours are strong enough if you're trying to imitate it (maybe you're not)...rich oranges, purples, greens & blues balanced out with black & white. This site's not the best, but it has some good covers for inspiration... http://annexus.homestead.com/home.html
As far as your cover design goes...I just feel like the elements aren't pulled together. It can be so tricky forming a relationship between the various elements of your design & your text...I have trouble with it myself...sometimes just moving things around trying different layouts...increasing/decreasing scale...overlapping...sometimes I find if you bring in another element to glue it together...you have your background, & your foreground images, but if you introduce something behind the images that somehow binds them...a subdued pattern or shape of some sort. I think with your design, playing with the scale of your images might help.
The back cover is good...although I'd keep the text black & use colour behind it.
I know you only made this in 10 mins...& it's great considering...but you asked for an honest opinion, so I gave you one! ;)

thank you for showing the colored version *claps her tiny hands in awe*:roll
I'll have to agree with Digi Pixie on this. You've got a good start though, and the back looks good! :)

pixie: they're good design thoughts to hold on to for any job.
we could all to with that little check list.
i'll stick it in the back of my crowded little brain somewhere. :-)

I think i like the second one best!

they are both real nice. I like the second back cover. maybe a darker, less pastelish color scheme would work?
