McGonagall's Dogg started as an art school project. Initially joining together to provide the music for a thesis performance art piece, they quickly found their unique mesh of dry wit, melodic hooks, and sophisticated production values made them the darlings of college radio. After releasing a self-financed EP they were promptly signed by TootSuite Records and began the trial-by-fire of writing and recording their first album.

Completed after 18-months of ego wars and several near contract cancellations, Thesaurus Rex (as the album came to be named) already has good buzz, with many claiming the very perfectionism and high-reaching conceptualism that caused so many problems in the studio finally resulted in an album to rival any debut in the past 30 years.

"With haunting vocals and a dramatic (almost operatic) musical sense, the wry understated humor of the lyrics is punctuated by startlingly nihilistic stabs of reality in the quietest passages. Sadly funny, dark yet hopeful." -- No Mas Magazine

Challenge: Design and create the front album cover for Thesaurus Rex

Do your best, and post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you retouch and how much you retouch is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version
